Teaching Volunteer Project (Any Subjects and Any level)


The Exchange

Ghana is one of the best destinations in West Africa. A country endowed with breathtaking landscapes and exotic coastline. The diversity of culture and people is beautiful and Ghanaians are known to be very welcoming. There is a genuine need for assistance particularly in primary schools where education has recently been made compulsory across the country, there are simply not enough teachers to go around so any extra help is needed.

Seriously give it a thought and apply today to teach. The ages of the students a volunteer will handle depend on the class, but for basics, ages range from 5-15 years and for Vocational ranging from 15-25 years. We are looking for more volunteers; the role of the volunteer goes far beyond assisting the students and the school. Children are attracted to school by the presence of volunteers and your presence also is a proven moral booster for parents and the limited teachers as well as a great inspiration for students.
