Loving Ghana, the kids are great. Ghanaians are so friendly, everyday is a new experience. – Jeanette Warthon, from USA
When you volunteer in Ghana working with childcare, you will be considered a daily staff member, working Monday-Friday. On the weekends you may choose, if you want to make a trip in the country or rather stay and continue working. Your volunteer work will be focused on caring for the kids by nurturing, playing, tutoring, and teaching them. Also, you will be expected to help with various needs, chores, and duties around the children’s home. Upon acceptance into your program, you will be provided with a daily schedule to guide your tasks throughout the day.
Volunteer teaching English in Ghana and support the local teachers at the schools run by the children’s homes. The volunteer work teaching English to the children, is best fun and will give the bes result, when the volunteers are paired with local teachers. Once accepted into our program, we will work with you to choose the subjects that you are best suited to teach. Additionally, we will match you to appropriate grade levels based on your interest and the needs of the school. The schools serve students from nursery to junior high school levels.
As a teacher, your working schedule will be Monday thru Friday, leaving the weekends free to travel. In addition to teaching, you will support the tutoring efforts of youth at the children’s home in the evenings on weekdays. It is very common for volunteers to combine programs, and do both childcare and teaching during their service to make the most of their time, as your afternoons and evenings will be free after teaching.
