About

Nka Foundation welcomes volunteers to a life changing experience by cultural immersion and service learning outside of Western culture.

Full-immersion experiential learning program in rural Africa in our Arts Village Community in Ghana.

If you are a student, you can participate for internships, thesis or research on a special topic for college credits. We also welcome faculty-led curricular projects at our rural community. We issue a Certificate of Participation at the end of the program.

DESIGN-BUILD EARTH ARCHITECTURE PROJECTS:

Come join us as we use traditional Earth construction methods to build an artist-in-residence community center for weaving.

Experience a new culture and be part of a collaborative environment. You will be involved in all aspects of construction such as building foundation, wall construction, roofing and landscaping of the completed unit.

At the end of your stay, you must have mastered a construction method such as rammed earth, mud brick or cob construction through participation in building workshops.


FREE TIME ACTIVITIES:

Volunteers can take part in some of the social events in the everyday life of the community, such as traditional festivals, community labor, worship, and meetings to gain new skills. There will be opportunities for lush forest hikes, day-trips to experience any of the regional attractions, or guided tours to explore the nearby villages and townships.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Anyone with a big heart, enthusiasm and older than 18 is welcome!
  • Minimum stay of 2 weeks in the chosen program


COSTS:

  • 100 EUR/USD per week for accommodation and food provided by Nka Foundation in the Arts Village
