The health center is a small under-resourced government-owned. This will need your initiative as well as passion to learn. Your enthusiasm and dedication will make you feel lovely and also gel well with the community. You will help out with many jobs at the Health Center. One of the main jobs is to conduct malaria tests on patients with malaria symptoms and collect their blood by using a specialized kit to get results. On each day of the week, the health center has specific clinics like school health, where they go to the various schools to educate the pupils about health issues and ante-natal clinics, Taking pressure and changing bandages for patients, and learning about different healthcare practices among other cultures and giving basic education on prevention of diseases, helping in basic first aid and care. A health Volunteer could be placed at the District Health Centre which is a few minutes away from the host family or at Agona Swedru Government Hospital which is a few minutes drive from home. You also get the opportunity to be present during deliveries. Colleagues in the health center are amazing. They would always make sure there is something for you to do to keep you busy. Throughout the period they will all become really good friends. They are always there for a chat and always make you laugh. All of them are so friendly and will teach you so much that you will definitely use in the future after Ghana.

Mission Statement

Equalcups is a community-driven and social-oriented initiative. Our goal is to improve communities by strengthening individuals and unfolding the potential of each community.

Description

Equalcups is a community-driven and social-oriented initiative. Our goal is to improve communities by strengthening individuals and unfolding the potential of each community. Pamdond Jung founded it in 2010 as Remember Me Foundation which later became EQUALCUPS. EQUALCUPS is a non-profit organization with a strong sense of passion to make this world a better place, by bridging the gap and making it possible for each and every individual who is capable and ready to grow. For all those that might not be capable of their own strength, we open doors for them to grow and develop in a way that benefits them and the communities they live in. All these are made possible by the involvement of people who believe everyone deserves an opportunity and a great life.

Equalcups addresses these SDGs: 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, 4 Quality Education, and 3 Good Health and Well-Being. We have a partnership with Gomoa Sport for Change in Ghana, which helps us create and execute major projects in Ghana.

In 2018 we started a project called First-Aid Public Education(F.A.P.E.) which helps three times a year. Its goal is to help educate, train, and spread the importance and relevance of First-Aid in Ghana.
