Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the education of children in Kumasi City and the general rural Ashanti Region. Volunteers may choose if they want to work in the city or in a rural area. Whichever location and school the volunteer is placed in, they will assist in a range of subjects, including mathematics, science, geography, social sciences, history, business education, art and music, as well as English. The teaching takes place in nursery, primary and secondary schools where volunteers initially either shadow or teach under the supervision of a local teacher. Once acquainted with the school and the curriculum, volunteers in Ghana will be given the chance to teach independently. Volunteers’ level of involvement within the classroom can be tailored to suit their skills and interests. A willingness to share and an ability to be proactive is important and will make volunteers a valuable addition to any classroom. With a decent education, these children will have a greater chance of employment and a better life.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide an education to children in Kumasi City or in the rural Ashanti region
  • Improve the future prospects of the children in these areas
  • Show compassion and provide assistance to vulnerable children
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

Need - We work directly with local charities on grass-roots community development projects. Our focus is on providing support where it is really needed - not holidays! We keep volunteer numbers at sustainable levels to meet the needs of each project - not to increase revenue!

Impact - By becoming a Love Volunteer you are saying to the world that you are a REAL volunteer and your focus is on supporting people and communities in need. You're not just a tourist and your goals include much more than selfies and hangovers. Your contribution with LV will be real and measurable. You will change lives, and one of them will be your own!

Security - We have placed thousands of international volunteers in meaningful voluntary service projects around the world. We have the experience and the reputation, so you know you are in good hands!

Friendship - One of the benefits of volunteering is that you'll meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. This is one of the true benefits of volunteering and we encourage you to make the most of the unique opportunity to develop these cross-cultural friendships.

Free time - We realize that everyone needs a break and encourage our volunteers to have a look around where and when possible. All you need to do is let us know what you want to do and we will do our very best to make it happen for you!
