Description

Bordering the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa, Ghana is the former British colony of the Gold Coast. Ghanaian children grow up mainly exposed to their local tribal languages, such as Ga, Twi, and Ewe, but English remains the country’s official uniting language, and is needed to communicate with fellow Ghanaians in education and business. As an English teaching volunteer you can therefore have a huge impact, helping local children in their speaking and conversational skills.
Ghanaian schools are often understaffed and poorly resourced, but you can help to improve this situation by volunteering.

The impact you have on the lives of your students will be obvious and long lasting, but you will also be part of a much wider international volunteer network, which is making a really positive contribution to the communities in which we work.

Highlights

With placements based mainly in the semi-rural Akuapem Hills, but also available in Accra, Cape Coast, Koforidua, and Kumasi, English teaching opportunities in Ghana are varied.

Most of our projects are in primary schools in and around the traditional Akuapem Hills area, about an hour north of Accra. You'll generally be asked to take the scheduled English classes for a range of ages. Your encouragement, praise, and some creative lessons are often all that are needed to spark an interest in the language and a desire to learn more. Your friendly Ghanaian teaching colleagues act as supervisors and ensure that you feel happy with your classes.
