Description

Experience Highlights:

  • Step onto the flat, sandy land of Ghana, and you’ll immediately hear the laughter of children everywhere. This laughter will be the constant of your trip, and a steady source of energy while you volunteer among one of Africa’s most passionate and kind communities.
  • Ghanaians are known for their smiles, vibrancy and welcoming nature. You’ll see bright colors everywhere – in the land, stitched into traditional clothing and adorning the decor of your Home Base. Your arrival will bring excitement to classrooms as you work to inspire students toward success in school.
  • Work with children of different ages to help improve their English skills, tutor those who might be falling behind and contribute to each school’s needs, including making improvements to the facilities. Split your time between teaching (potentially without electricity or under a tree) and campus refurbishment projects to serve every aspect of the school, and learn all about education in Ghana. You may be involved in teaching summer school or organizing games with children at the local park. Try to keep up with the children as they invite you to play soccer and schoolyard games after class.
  • Experience full immersion in Ghana’s rich cultural heritage as you are invited to actively participate in drumming and dancing, batik fabric dyeing, explore outdoor markets, visit historic sites, take part in cooking lessons and do crash courses in the native language, Ewe or Krobo.
  • You’ll be bestowed a Ghanaian name by the local chief of your village, and visit a seamstress to have custom clothing made out of colorful fabrics you purchase.
  • To learn more about dynamic issues and challenges Ghana faces, hear from local experts about topics varying from traditional gender roles to modern-day children’s issues.
  • Experience the natural surroundings of Ghana with a beautiful waterfall hike.
  • On our 21-Day Program, go on a two-night excursion where you’ll get to visit a monkey sanctuary.
  • Contribute 40 hours of community service.
  • Student/Staff Ratio: 6 to 1.

 

A typical Children of Africa Experience:

  • We operate two Home Bases for the 21-day program, and one Home Base for the 14-day program.
  • All are located outside of the capital city of Accra in rural village settings.
  • Accommodations are basic, but clean and safe.
  • Students sleep in gender-segregated rooms with roommates, and have access to shared bathrooms with cold-water showers.
