Teach in rural Ghana. Nursery, primary and junior secondary school placements are available. You will experience the culture, the people and much more
Rural Ghana needs you. 98 percent of adults in Abetenim are unable to read or write due to poor education infrastructure. The focus is on basic education of the younger generation in view that in the next 10 to 15 years, the youth of today will be educated adult leaders in the community, who will in turn influence the upcoming generation. Take the Challenge. Be our volunteer!
Nursery, primary and junior secondary school placements are available. Volunteers are needed to teach one or two of the following school subjects
If you are motivated about changing lives of those growing up in poverty through education and innovative learning techniques, then this is the program for you. Our program is open to university students, gap year persons, working professionals, retirees and mission trips. Learn by discovering what resources the community already has and by mobilising those assets to meet the education needs in the rural school. Students can use the opportunity for internship, personal research or thesis.
Immerse in the local culture and lifestyle. Live and work among the local people. Take part in some of the social events in the everyday life of the community, such as weddings, naming ceremonies, community labor, burial celebrations, meetings and gain new skills.
Go on an expedition to observe and photograph wildlife or waterfall. There will be opportunities for day-trips to experience any of the regional attractions, lush forest hikes or mountain climbing as well as guided tours to explore the nearby villages.
It's a guesthouse at the arts village, which is less than a quarter of a mile from the school. Both the arts village and the school are in the village of Abetenim. The accommodation consists of one dormitory building that has a kitchen, and 8 cottage buildings for our guests. Most of the bathrooms shared. Two of the cottages have a kitchen for self-catering. So, provide vegetarian options are possible. You can buy cabbage, lettus, carrot, rice, beans and fruits in the local market.
There is also a Kitchen building that is for cooperative kitchen, where lunch&dinner can be prepared for international volunteers by our local cook. Our menu consists of both local meals and interntational foods.

It has been more of a dinner party, a time to come together to sample national cuisine.
