Intern & Volunteer in Ghana
Our projects focus on community development and healthcare, and volunteers with or without specific skills are welcomed to have the chance to contribute and make a positive impact. From students or medical professionals looking to be a medical volunteer in Ghana to volunteers looking to support child education, there is an opportunity to make a sustainable difference with Kaya.
There are plenty of fun and interesting ways for volunteers to spend their free time in Ghana. In Accra, Ghana’s capital, you can visit Makola market, the city’s most popular market with bustling, packed stalls. The market is a great place for interns and volunteers to gain insight into everyday life in Ghana. History lovers should make time to visit the National Museum of Ghana to explore a range of archaeological and ethnographic artefacts, a fantastic way to learn more about Ghanaian culture and its origins. And while you are exploring don’t forget to try the local food – fried plantain and redred (beans) are delicious!
Ghana is a beautiful and diverse country; its varied landscape is made up of wetland lagoons, expansive plains and tropical guinea rainforest. When you’re not busy being a volunteer in Ghana, spend some time away from the busy streets of Accra and discover Ghana’s wealth of natural beauty. Take a weekend trip to Busua Beach, a charming and increasingly popular surf destination that you won’t soon forget. If you’re planning on staying in Ghana after your volunteer or internship is complete, then you could make the journey to Wli Waterfalls, the highest waterfall in Ghana and West Africa, experience Ghana’s diverse wildlife on a safari, or even hop over the border to Togo.
Join our internships and volunteer projects in Ghana to make a helpful, sustainable impact on disadvantaged communities, while enjoying the vitality of its cities and the varied landscapes.
