We offer two different ways in which you can volunteer. One is as a standard volunteer where you can choose to stay from two weeks to six months. This is an ongoing program and a volunteer can start anytime of year. The other is as a VolunTour volunteer which is a two week program that is a combination of volunteering and organized tours of Ghana. We do these 2-3 times a year. Please indicate which program you are interested in when emailing us for more information. (More details about our VolunTour can be found under the “Volun-tour” link under the “Volunteer” tab).

When filling out your application, please mention what you are interested in doing in Ghana, what sort of field you want to work in and what areas you have experience in. There is need for help all over Ghana and we can tailor your assignment to work best for you as well as the recipient of your assistance.
