About the Program

OGVO is asking for volunteers to assist with a unique opportunity to work in animal care and wildlife and environmental conservation projects. Conservation Project volunteers will have the option to work on a wide range of initiatives including zoo work in Kumasi, monkey sanctuary work at Boabeng Fiema. This is a great volunteer option for all people who are interested in animals and want to make a difference in environmental conservation.

Volunteer Duties in Kumasi Zoo

The Kumasi Zoo is home to a variety of birds and other endangered species of animals that are indigenous to Africa. Accra Zoo shifted to Kumasi in September 2006 because of the presidential palace construction. Volunteer daily duties include:

  • Cleaning areas
  • Feeding the animals
  • Moving the animals from one area to another
  • Taking care of sick animals as well as any other duties that will be assigned to you by the officials

Volunteer Duties at Boabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary

Boabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary is about 22km north of Nkoranza and hosts a lot of families of Mona Monkeys. There are around 600 in the entire sanctuary and are brown. We also have around 250 Geoffrey's Pied Columbus Monkeys which are black and white. Traditional and local beliefs prohibit physical harm to monkey. This sanctuary is the only area in the region where people can see these species in large numbers. We also have a wide range of butterflies, birds, and many species of trees. Volunteers will be daily responsible for: administrative duties, leading tours, teaching visitors about monkeys and the flora and fauna of the surrounding area.

We are looking for volunteers who are hardworking, environmentally conscious, adaptable and open-minded about new cultures, and, of course, passionate.

Volunteer duties can shift daily, so volunteers must be flexible.

Volunteers who are interested in conducting research at the monkey sanctuary will need pay USD $100 for an amount of time ranging from 1 day to 6 months.

Researches and volunteers are expected to teach during their time at the sanctuary.

Sobre o projecto

Conheça seu anfitrião

The Our Generation Voluntary Organization (OGVO) was founded in 2004 in order to enable young people to use their leisure time for international volunteering, interns, cultural exchange programs etc. in Ghana. Our Generation Voluntary Organization is a non-profit and non-governmental African Organisation. Our volunteer programs/projects are suitable for anyone on a Gap Year, Career Break or for anyone looking to do a short term volunteer program.

Our Generation Voluntary Organisation provides safe, unique, flexible, meaningful and extremely affordable volunteer programs and non-paid internships work-experience in Ghana. We have a variety of programs on offer at affordable prices. Our projects are designed to cater to the needs of people from all backgrounds. 

Since its inception in 2004, OGVO has delivered great experiences to thousands of volunteers across the ten regions of Ghana. Our Medical and Healthcare internships are much admired amongst the medical students, and this is where medics get hands-on knowledge into complex medical procedures. Be it for college credits or an internship or volunteer certificate or even a service learning trip - schoolies, gapers and numerous high school students enroll for our programs throughout the year.

Our Generation Voluntary Organisation's volunteer and intern programs are available in both urban and rural areas. OGVO has flexible start dates and durations that runs from 1 week to 6 months depending on the program of your choice. Extensions can be arranged with advanced notice. You can arrive any day of the year with advanced notice as well. During this time, you will be staying in the home of a local Ghanaian family. Our host families are carefully screened, socially respected and experienced with hosting international volunteers.  Accommodation is simple but clean and includes 3 meals a day of local cuisine. Typically, volunteers eat breakfast and dinner at the host family and have lunch at their project.  

OGVO believes that home stays offer you the best experience during your time in Ghana by allowing you to save money, while providing you with an easy way to integrate into Ghanaian culture. In most cases, you will share a room with volunteers (of same gender). Your weekends are free to explore some of the amazing sights that Ghana has to offer. Volunteers regularly travel together and our team will help you plan weekend trips. Our staff visits volunteers regularly and always happy to help our volunteers in any way needed.

Being only 17 I had little experience of travel alone, so I had no idea what to expect from a solo volunteering trip to Ghana. Armed with hiking boots and numerous bottles of mosquito repellent, I boarded my flight from London to Accra, nervous but excited for what’s to come. There, I was greeted ...
