Ghana is a country of dramatic change and optimism, which is reflected in the schools in which we work. Though they are often over-crowded, understaffed and under-funded, a real enthusiasm and a hope for the future seem to permeate through the students. It is going to be hard to maintain this as more and more skilled teachers continue to leave for EUPROPE and AMERICA in search of lucrative teaching contract, because of this we welcome any assistance from volunteers to teach basic causes like English, French, Computer, Mathematics or Science from pre-schools, primary, junior high or senior high schools.You don’t need qualification to be part of our teaching project just basic knowledge of the subjects, you can volunteer for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of 12months.Your contribution will go a long way to make a difference in a Childs life.You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering.

You will also need to take time to prepare your lessons, and correct your students’ work. Many volunteers choose to help out in other areas too, helping students with extra-curricular activities like sports, drama or music lessons for example.
