Health Care - Do you have experience in health related areas and want an experience that will last a lifetime? Then seize the opportunity to work alongside local staff at a village in Ghana. When you first arrive at the hospital you will discuss your work schedule with your StayAway coordinator and the project supervisor. Most volunteers choose to spend time in a variety of departments such as accident and emergency, pediatrics, maternity, pharmacy, physical therapy, and surgery.
These people need love and attention, and assistance with their health issues and counselling them. Come and work alongside local professionals observing different approaches to various conditions and treatments, and to assist with regular outreach work conducting basic heath checks and health presentations in local communities
Teaching - Do you love kids and get a kick out of seeing them learn and achieve? Many schools in Ghana struggle with overcrowded classes and a lack of skilled teachers.
We have opportunities for volunteers to assist with teaching in the following:
As a volunteer you can help to empower girls and boys by giving them the skills they need for the future and to make their voices heard.
A teaching qualification is not required but volunteers need to be confident in the above subjects and preferably have or be studying towards a university degree. Your level of experience will determine the age group that you work with.
Farming - Do you have green fingers? Great gardening skills? Then grab this opportunity to work alongside local Ghanaians and assist in the farming program.
The farm belongs to the community and is used to grow food for the children and generate income to support the running of the school; excess produce is to be sold locally. Duties will include weeding, planting, watering and harvesting. As a volunteer, you will be responsible for helping to maintain all aspects of the farm including animal care, crop growing, flower production, and land management. The farm produces a variety of crops, including small quantities of plantain, papaya, carrots, onions, yam, coco yams, and sweet pepper.
