COACHING SOCCER 

in Ghana with Samba Africa  is a chance for volunteers to share their passion for this popular sport abroad and to help children develop their skills and talents. Soccer is the national sport in Ghana and its popularity can be seen everywhere. From the numerous soccer flags on cars, stickers in taxis, locals in soccer jerseys, or kids playing in the street, it is immediately apparent that Ghanaians are extremely passionate about soccer. Given the 'Black Stars' - the Ghanaian team - successful performance in recent World Cups, soccer in Ghana can only continue to get bigger and better.

Our soccer projects in Ghana provide the opportunity for all young players to develop their basic skills and techniques with the hope that some may achieve the success of Premiership stars  Asamoah Gyan, Michael Essien . There will also be the opportunity to see one of Ghana's many top division club teams - like Kotoko and Hearts of Oak - in action. Volunteers sometimes take young players to games to help with their soccer development and to provide a well-earned break from their sport coaching.

Safety

your well-being while volunteering with us is our priority. We make sure your trip is safe and S.A.V.O– Ghana staff will provide whatever support you may need at any step along the way. We see to it that work being done at our projects is genuinely worthwhile and that it will have a positive impact on the aims of the project. We also save time in checking the legitimacy of the project and ensure a safe working environment for you.

Benefits to you
Samba Africa-Ghana travel experience offers you the chance to work on a volunteer project overseas. It offers you the simplicity of a package holiday with all the rewards of independent travel. A donation is made to the project, orientation, placement, assistance and adjustment, program and volunteer co-ordination/ staff support.

We assist in medical care in case a volunteer falls sick during his/her stay in Ghana











Typical day

SOCCER VOLUNTEER 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of a youth academy. Volunteers will take part in the morning meeting with the local coaches to prepare the training session, do match analysis, and discuss the weekly schedule. In the afternoons they will work with a youth team, giving them the benefit of their newly acquired coaching knowledge and skills.

This project is a fantastic chance to improve your skills and ability while also helping local children to develop their game. If you are good enough you may even be selected to play for one of the local third division teams in one of their friendly games.
