Ghana Teaching Project
Education across Africa is a reoccurring difficulty. For the majority of local families, it is simply too expensive to send their children to school. Despite Ghana’s state education being free, the costs of registration, uniform, shoes, books and more, results in children still not being able to go to school.
What will I be doing?
Volunteering on this project means that you will be assisting in the classroom for kids of any age. You may also be spending individual time with some pupils who are struggling or need extra attention. You role is so important because the children’s progress can increase simply just from your help alone. You don’t need any teaching experience to make a difference.
The teaching project focuses on this problem and works with The Future Leaders School in Accra to give children from these disadvantaged backgrounds the education they deserve at no cost to the student. The charity provides classes, meals, transport, uniform and books in order to make this possible.
During your stay you will be staying in the Volunteer House which you will be sharing with up to 25 volunteers for a lively community style experience. You will be staying in single sex dorm rooms which all have air conditioning. The rooms are well decorated, clean and simple. There are shared bathrooms throughout the house.
You will receive 2 cooked meals a day, breakfast and dinner and the project managers will help you find a place to eat for lunch, or you can cook it yourself in the house.
Ghana is one of the friendliest countries in Africa. You will experience being welcomed with joyful faces by all the locals who love to have oversees visitors. The Volunteer House is situated in Labadi which is on the outskirts of Accra and is only five minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches and a 20-minute drive from the city. Any amenities that you may need such as convenience stores, pharmacies and forex bureaus are all within a short distance from the house. The area where you will be staying is very quiet and inside a large, gated compound. The team will always be there to help make you feel as safe as possible during your trip.
