fundraising and promotion

We think that working with us is one of the most rewarding and ethical volunteering experiences you can have. Here’s why:

Personal service

  • Apply directly to the project and be in contact with the Ghana team from the start. We can tell you exactly what to expect whilst you are here.

Grass roots project

  • Volunteers are essential to the day to day running of the project and the finance created by those who volunteer is used directly to the running of the project.

Support training

  • Our live-in staff help you develop skills needed to be a successful volunteer from the start, to ensure you get the most from your placement and the students get the best education possible.

Community development

  • We employ Ghanaian staff as teachers, cooks, vocational trainers and managers, ensuring local consultation, long-term commitment and greater local development.

Assessed placement

  • We will work with your university or school to help plan, execute and review goals set as part of any placement requirements. We have long-standing ties with Canterbury Christ Church University, UK, who annually send BaEd students here for placement, and with Lordswood 6th Form College in Birmingham, UK. We have also had students from Canada and the USA who have volunteered here as part of their degree programmes.

Wider community involvement

  • The UCC football and netball teams, vocational training salons and vocational sewing centre help to train, involve and employ even more young people and adults in their community. This provides greater integration between our volunteer project and the community it works within.
