OUR INTERN OR VOLUNTEER IN GHANA PROJECTS

Volunteer in the West African country of Ghana, one of Africa‘s most stable nations. Known for Lake Volta, its colonial history and its picturesque coastline, Ghana is an inspiring destination to visit and a rewarding place to volunteer. So take part in one of our projects and discover more about this strikingly scenic country and its friendly people.

Volunteer in Ghana

Our projects focus on community development and healthcare, and volunteers with or without specific skills will be welcomed and have the chance to make a positive impact. Volunteers on the Mobile Literacy project, for example, will be instrumental in improving the literacy levels of people from disadvantaged communities in and around the city of Accra, where all our projects are based.

There’s plenty of fun and interesting ways for volunteers to spend their free time on a project in Ghana. In Accra, Ghana’s capital, you should visit Makola market, the city’s most popular, with its bustling and packed stalls, as the market is a great place for volunteers to gain an insight into everyday life in Ghana. History lovers should make time to visit the National Museum of Ghana to explore a range of archeological and ethnographic artifacts, 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. Spend some time away from the busy streets of Accra and discover Ghana’s wealth of natural beauty. Travel to Busua Beach for a weekend break, a charming and increasingly popular surf destination that you won’t forget in a hurry. If you’re planning on staying in Ghana for a little while longer after your project finishes then make the journey to Wli Waterfalls, the highest waterfall in in Ghana and West Africa. Or perhaps consider experiencing Ghana’s diverse wildlife on a safari, or hopping over the border to Togo.

Join our intern and volunteer in Ghana projects with Kaya and make a helpful and sustainable impact on a disadvantaged community, and enjoy the vitality of its cities and the variety of its landscapes.
