Care Work with Children in Ghana

Company : Projects Abroad
Location : Accra, Akuapem Hills, Cape Coast
Duration: 2 weeks to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 1000 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Projects Abroad offer volunteering placements in a number of different types of care facilities in Ghana; this is a rewarding way to help improve the care and education of children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Although Ghana is rich in natural resources and ancient traditions, an ever-growing disparity between rich and poor has resulted in a large proportion of the population living in poverty. Problems such as violent methods of discipline, child labour and poor education mean that childhood in Ghana can be a real struggle, which is why our volunteer Care projects are so important.

In Ghana, we offer placements in orphanages, care centres and schools for children with disabilities. Volunteers work towards goals set out by our Care Management Plan, including running educational games and group activities, providing emotional support, and helping to improve hygiene practices.
