As a First Intervention Ghana Care volunteer working with children in orphanages or care centers, you will be helping the kids to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach. By getting involved in the day-to-day running of the home - making sure children are fed, washed and dressed, and paying them personal attention - you will be making a really helpful impact on their lives.
There is at all times scope for any talents or interests you may have to be utilized. Arts, crafts and music are always popular activities and many care placements have outside areas where sports and games can be played.
Many volunteers also help to educate the children in personal hygiene and social skills.
Our care projects include the following:
Voluntary care work with people who have disabilities
Volunteering in day care centers, kindergartens and with street children
Walk a special needs kid to school
Some of the most important work that desires to be done in Ghanaian communities is setting up basic infrastructure. Helping communities through building lays a foundation that will allow locals to continue with your efforts even after your volunteer work in Ghana has ended.
Volunteer building is great for everyone aged 16 to 60+! These projects are for volunteers who are on summer holidays, a gap year from your education, or taking a career break and they run all year round. You don’t need any previous building experience, though you should be physically fit and willing to work hard in order to partake on these projects.
Our building projects really allow volunteers to be immersed in the host community. Volunteers work with locals to make sure these projects get completed and match the needs of the people they’re benefitting.
You may find that the way you’re used to working on building projects back home can be very different from this experience; the materials used are often more simple and there can be limited tools for construction. Additionally, work schedules may vary due to a hot or rainy climate, so a flexible attitude and a willingness to get involved when needed is essential.
Our building project can be taking up volunteer where he/she can raised funds to put a nursery
building, clinic, urinal for school or renovate a dilapidated buildings in hospitals, clinics, schools or orphanage homes
- such initiative you added to our ‘International Hall of Fame’.
