Description

”Akwaaba” means welcome to Ghana the land of gold, and the gateway and heart of West Africa! Ghana’s history started almost 2000 years – mainly trade in gold, salt, kola nuts and ivory existed among Ghanaian’s and sub African states, this brought Europeans to the shores of Africa and to the country formerly called Gold Coast.

Samba Africa Voluntary Organization invites you to come on an unforgettable trip to the land rich in history, culture and tradition. Meet Ghanaians – noted for their warmth, hospitality and friendliness. This Program takes place in Kumasi, a historical city of the Ashanti Kingdom of gold during the first 2-weeks of your arrival in Ghana.

Volunteer Activities
