Description

Ghana is an exciting and popular place to spend some time on a volunteer project or internship. Ghana is an intensely colorful land on the West coast of Africa. Once the British colony known as the 'Gold Coast', it is renowned for the friendliness and warmth of its people. Ghana has great beaches, wild savannah, and dense rainforests. This English-speaking country provides volunteers with a wonderful introduction to Africa; it is politically-stable, safe, affordable, and rewarding to visit.

Our projects in Ghana are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a summer break, gap year, career break, or volunteer vacation.

Projects Abroad has many projects in Ghana, based in Accra, Cape Coast, Koforidua, Kumasi, and the Akuapem Hills. The areas covered are Teaching, Care, Building, Medicine & Healthcare, Journalism, Veterinary Medicine, Sports, Farming, Microfinance, Law & Human Rights, and Twi Language Courses.

Highlights

Living in vibrant, colorful Ghana will feel like an explosion - an enchanting sensory overload. Music is a central part of Ghanaian culture, so in the bigger towns, especially Accra, you will hear some great live bands and have some memorable nights out.

There are many, many attractions and places to visit. You will want to see the slave castles and spend a night in the rainforest at Kakum Rainforest Reserve, feed wild monkeys at The Boebeng Monkey Village, or elephant watch at Mole National Park.

Ghana is a superb location for bird watching and is developing a good ecotourism philosophy. It’s also an interesting place for history lovers and, once your project is over, a great stepping-off point for exploring West Africa.
