Volunteer in Ghana

VolSol has many volunteering opportunities in Ghana. Popularly known as the ‘Gateway to West Africa’, Ghana is one of the preferred destinations for our volunteers. Students and corporate groups on their gap year travel or summer breaks prefer to volunteer travel to Ghana. In Ghana, VolSol has its presence in Tamale. Tamale is one of the fastest growing cities of Ghana, it is well connected to Accra (Capital city) via road and air. Our volunteers can enrol for community development project, girl’s education project, can do football coaching, take up health care program, teach kids, or volunteer at an orphanage.

The NGOs and social development organizations we partner with have a manpower crunch and logistical issues, even a hand in the construction and repair work is much appreciated. Our program is flexible to accommodate multiple skills, provided that you want to use them.

Apart from the volunteer work, life in Ghana is relaxed and easy. By spending time with the locals you will learn about their elaborate festivals, the local cuisine comprising of Banku and Fufu - Ghana's most famous dishes, their colorful dresses and the music and dances.

Our programs in Ghana have been very successful and the volunteers have made significant impact in the lives of local Ghanaian communities. Download free guidebook of Ghana to get more details
