Working at an orphanage in Ghana is likely to be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of your life. In orphanages and children homes, volunteers assist in caring for destitute and abandoned children and orphans, some of whom have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS.

The day to day tasks include helping at meal times with cooking, cleaning and feeding the younger kids; arranging games and fun activities; helping the school age children with their homework; monitoring the cleanliness of all the children, bathing and getting the younger kids dressed, and teaching good hygiene habits.

Volunteers can also assist with some teaching as many of the school children would benefit from a little one on one tutoring. There may also be basic building and repair work to be done at the orphanage. Some experience working with children is preferred, as is a responsible, enthusiastic and compassionate attitude. Initiative and self-motivation are important.

With any of the locations volunteers will stay with a host family or at the placement; some of the orphanage homes has volunteer accommodation, which are all safe and secure.

Where will I work

This placement is available in Accra, Kumasi and Cape Coast. All these locations are safe, secure and friendly to foreigners. Volunteers have the opportunity to choose any of the location and volunteers on long stay of more than a month can do the placement in two different locations.

Accra is the capital and seat of government, it has  a lot of beaches and lot of shopping mall stock with a lot of foreign products. Kumasi is the second capital and the garden city of Ghana. It has a lot of historic centers and the biggest open outdoor market in West Africa. Cape coast has beaches and also the historic center for slave trade.

What You Can Bring

There is a lack of playing materials at most centres. Volunteers can bring materials like paints, pencils and pencil colours, crayon, drawing papers, toys etc. Some of these materials can also be found in the local market for ready purchase. Most importantly you bring a big heart and smile.

What we expect from you

You must be passionate about children,  Ready to assist placement staff to take care of children and ability to work with children from all kinds of background and with specific needs and attention.

What you can expect from us

Our staff is available to you 24/7 to give any necessary support. We will assign one staff to take care of your needs.

Who You will Work with

Volunteers work closely with other teachers and staff and report to the headteacher of the school on assignments and also when you have any issue at the school. Volunteers are also paired with other volunteers if any to work on similar projects.

How Do I Get to the placement

For the first day, volunteer will be taken to the school. Our staff  will show volunteer how to get to the placement, the direction to take, the particular vehicle and the amount to pay for the transportation. This is repeated the next day if volunteer thinks he still can't make it until the volunteer can make his/her way. The same is done for the returning to the home-stay after the school ends.

 NOTE: As this program involves working closely with orphaned and at risk children a four week minimum commitment is required to participate.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

 Volunteer’s  are likely to work for  8 hours with flexibility.  A typical day goes like this:

7:00am Breakfast

7:30am walk or a ride to placement

Volunteers have the weekend to explore the 16 regions of Ghana. Each region has its unique culture and tourist sites. Volunteers are advice to read more about Ghana's tourist sites to help them have a fair idea of where their interest will be. 

We help volunteers to choose tourist sites and give advice on safety check, accommodation and recommend tour guide if the need be.  There is a monkey sanctuary, mole safari ride, waterfalls, open street market, museum etc that volunteers can visit.

Volunteers will stay with a host family that will be provided by SFLIG, which is very safe for volunteers and this will help them to adjust, adapt and know the Ghanaian culture and that of the community intern will be doing the volunteer work. The selection of a host family will deepen on the information that will be provided on the application form the volunteer will fill and submit. 

These host families are people who have been investigated and have good record and have good health. There are periodic checks to see if they are still u to standard. The accommodation is part of the program fee. Accommodation in hostiles and dormitories can sometimes be organized for group of interns from 6 upwards working on same or similar project or working at the same project site. Volunteer will have a room of her own or mostly likely to share a room with a fellow volunteer. A bed will be provided and any other necessary things like a table and chair will be provided and volunteer will have access to T.V, radio, electricity, kitchen, toilet and bath, clean water.

Eten & Drank

Host families are responsible for providing breakfast and dinner everyday. Due to the distance between project area and home lunch can’t be provided and volunteers are advice to go with a snack. The foods served mainly consist of continental dishes comprising rice, chicken, beef, tea, coffee, bread, eggs, soup, potato, oaths, fruits, fish, etc. Local food

That is mainly made from the above, tubers, beans and/or maize is served alongside. It is also very common for an intern to find a familiar dish in restaurants in different cities. Volunteers are provided with well treated water which is purchased from certified producers of hygienically bottled or bagged water.

Volunteers with special dietary needs like vegetarian should let us know, so we can prepare their preferred meal. Those with allergies should let us know too.
