I was a volunteer for four weeks. This experience was memorable and incredible! the host Kafui is the best host, always super kind and make you enjoy every part of the trip with every detail and with all the volunteers.I had never done any volunteer work international before. I would recomed 100% this experience people are now part of my family. The work teaching in the schools ad the local library really makes the difference for the kids! Volunteering in the library was undoubtedly essential and very important for children to have access to books, read, write and learn :)

Had a great stay with Idea Africa. The host and his family were very kind to me and very helpful in regards to helping me adapt to the culture. Working with the children was truly a blessing as many of them were so eager to learn and happy to someone foreign from them. Be ready to try some of the traditional foods but no worries because everything was delicious.

Be prepared to travel as you may be going throughout country to engage other towns . This trip was very inspiring to see Kofui Winner(host) building libraries across Ghana with relentless energy and exceptional leadership skills.
