There are many organizations out there that provide great programs that really do make a difference. Committing to travel to a developing country and spending time there is a big decision and not one to be taken lightly. What kinds of programs are out there? What feels right to you? What questions and concerns do you have? Each organization has its own goals and own missions.
Global Host Project is a young and grassroots organization. We are attentive to each participant’s goals and expectations for his or her experience. Our goal is to provide you the best personal service and the safest, most rewarding trip to Ghana possible. We are dedicated to you and providing your services to where Ghana needs you the most.
We are not only dedicated to our volunteers and the organizations and people they serve, but we are committed to giving back to the community. We do this by offering scholarships to local students who are in need financial need and show great academic potential. Most recently, we awarded 20 young women scholarships to learn dressmaking and fashion design at a special program at the Cape Coast Polytechnic. We’ve also donated a sewing machine to a local young woman to start her own business upon completing her seamstress training and also to a local junior high school. We’ve donated clothing and toys to schools, nurseries/day care centers, a leprosey camp for the children to benefit from. Global Host Project has paid for enrollment for over 500 students in the National Health Care Scheme to ensure the health of the youth. We’ve are also built a toilet facility in the village of Duakor where the local community did not have access to proper amenities. We’ve also donated computers to start a computer lab in partnership with two of our volunteers. We are truly committed to improving and empowering the local population.
