The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
A Not-for- Profit school from K-8 has been started in Oyoko, a suburb of Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana, in West Africa. Retired Teacher Volunteers are needed to bring their experience to help in teaching and curriculum development. Volunteers who are passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of young African children are invited to apply. A minimum commitment of one academic year is desired (September - July).
Current academic year (2017-2018) has started but volunteers who are ready can be engaged in the middle of the year when they are ready.
Free modest accommodation with basic facilities and an allowance in local currency will be provided. Volunteers are responsible for their own airfare and other expenses.
