Our Care & Community in Ghana Winter Break Trip is based in Akuapem Hills. As a volunteer, you will work in a group alongside other volunteers of all ages and nationalities and spend two weeks working in a day care centre. You will be able to play with and care for children in the mornings and renovate and decorate the building in the afternoons. This project is ideal for volunteers of all ages and skills, and all we ask is that volunteers are committed to helping the children at the placement.
By putting in a new floor or painting a mural on a neglected wall, you will be making a meaningful and lasting contribution to the placement. As a volunteer you will also be able to make the Christmas season a special time for the children at the placements where you’re working.
During your time in Ghana you will learn about another culture and become part of a close knit community. You will be hosted by a local family, which allows you to become fully immersed in the Ghanaian way of life.
Your two-week trip will be structured with a daily timetable and with evening and weekend activities arranged. You will spend Christmas with other volunteers and Projects Abroad staff and also celebrate the coming of the New Year together.
