'Akwaaba' to Africa's golden
child,
Ghana

Immerse yourself into the local community

All of our projects in Ghana are based in the small fishing village of Busua, located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the south. An up and coming surfing hotspot, you will find several chilled-out beach bars and restaurants along the picturesque palm tree lined beach – the perfect setting for relaxing each evening after volunteering! 

You will be able to easily explore everything else Ghana has to offer, such as the Cape Coast with easy transport links and our organised weekend trips. 

The community based projects will offer an insight into the Ghanaian way of life and everyone will provide you with the warmest of welcomes so you feel at home from day one.

Our programmes start on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month throughout the year and you can choose to join us from 1-24 weeks.

Our structured and safe programmes mean volunteering in Ghana is ideal for first time and solo travellers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Ghana as a group.
