Volunteer in Ghana

Ghana is one of VolSols most popular volunteer destinations in Africa. One of the main reasons for this are the varied project options offered in Ghana. From volunteering for children at local schools, to helping in community development programs; volunteers have a wide range of volunteering opportunities in Ghana.

Adding to the list of volunteer programs in Ghana are medical and healthcare, Sports coaching, and girl education volunteering. All placements are offered in the city of Tamale.

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.
