About

Ghana is home to Lake Volta, the world’s largest man-made reservoir and is home to nearly 20,000 children enduring brutal conditions and working as fishermen slaves, Thankfully, many of these children are being rescued. When they are, our partners in Ghana help provide safe housing, schooling, and restoration counseling. They also offer preventative education and job training for the local community so as stop this issue before it starts. As a volunteer team, you will help support our partners efforts by helping in the school, with sports activities, reading & homework, as well as service through outreach. Teams will interact with people of all ages and backgrounds, and share the love of Jesus Christ in word and in action.

In addition to this scheduled trip, teams can also be organized specifically for your church or for individual families. Training for this trip occurs over the course 12 weeks but is primarily focused around a 72 hour intensive weekend which will include orientation, team building, and discipleship training (growing in knowledge of who God is and who He has called us to be). Once in-country, each day will begin with devotional and end with a team debrief. You will sleep safely and comfortably, eating standard meals, and meeting amazing people as you witness God's handiwork. The goal of this trip is to remain flexible to what God would like to do in you and through you as a team and as an individual.
