Volunteering in Ghana on your gap year is a great way to help people living in a country with poor living standards. Ghana is a country in West Africa that’s plagued with problems such as poor education, poverty and health issues. The people of Ghana are well-known to be friendly and welcomingand it’s a great place to offer up your passion and skills in volunteering.
Volunteer work in Ghana can be whatever you want it to be. You can care for sick and underprivileged children in remote villages, assist or shadow practicing medical professionals to gain industry experience and assist patients born into a lacklustre health system. You could also give your time to an AIDS prevention centre and help run community sessions on how to prevent catching the disease, or take part in chimpanzee conservation and help with efforts to breed these endangered animals.
Volunteering in Ghana can be hugely rewarding although the local people do live their lives very differently to Westerners, meaning culture shock is sometimes an issue for some volunteers. Often thought of as one of Africa’s best kept secrets, Ghana is filled with incredible natural beauty and the local people are proud to call this country home.
