Actividades & Turnos

The role of the volunteer.
Orphanages in Ghana focus primarily on offering formal and informal schooling opportunities while offering the children a safe room for both living and studying. There are many areas where volunteers can support the ongoing activities of these orphanages. Depending upon the volunteer's interest and skills, volunteers may usually be involved in any of the following activities.

Teach English in orphanages or schools (when the children of the orphanage go to their respective schools during the day).

Help children with sanitation issues such as: brushing teeth, showering, and establishing and maintaining personal hygiene.

Organize games, drawing lessons, singing sessions, dancing and other creative, educational and extracurricular activities.

Help with homework; monitoring academic progress, and ensuring children complete their next day's homework and others.


Anybody can volunteer in this program as long as you are 17 years or more. Regardless of your profession, skill or experience. You can volunteer as a team or an individual. Your service is highly needed. However you should understand that you would not do anything that may stigmatize any of the children and people you meet in the course of your work. You need to have an open mind and a willing heart to be on this program.
