Childcare Work in Ghana from US$250

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Country: Ghana
Location : Accra
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

The Ghanaian orphanage program seeks to address the numerous problems that many children without proper education, health care, food, love and attention face as a result of their parents not being there for them.

Orphans everywhere need care and volunteers will be placed in either rural or urban environments where they will teach, love and care for these less fortunate children. Volunteers will design and execute effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the children’s talent and abilities through human interaction and care.

This program will also give volunteers an opportunity to explore and understand the Ghanaian people and their culture. Volunteers can bring along sweets, books, pencils and music instrument to help entertain the kids and assist with activities. These supplies can generally be brought in country if packing is limited (IVHQ actually encourages this as it brings more money into the Ghanaian economy as opposed to buying the goods in our home countries).

Volunteers on this placement will live in a volunteer house close to the orphanage, however if volunteer numbers are high, sometimes local home stay families are also utilised. NB This is only an example placement which is one of many offered by IVHQ in Ghana and not necessarily the one you will be working at.
