Posted on: January 27, 2013
Short-term volunteer opportunities with Prime Care Network in Ghana are really becoming more interesting with the rise of Voluntourism. Many tourists visiting Ghana, now wish to spend some of their vacation in a more enriching way, by helping local communities or being involved in conservation efforts. If you're traveling with a group of people and want to do some volunteer work you can get in touch with us. We consider any service less than six months to be short-term.
We invite your school or organized group to visit and work with us.
We are looking for interested groups of high school students, church youth groups, senior groups, or other organized groups to come and work with us for periods of a week or more. These short-term volunteers will get the chance to explore Ghanaian Cultures and visiting eco-tourist destinations in the country. This would be a unique and rewarding experience that you will remember for a life-time. Most importantly, you will be helping us provide caring and better education for orphans and street children, build an orphanage home, renovating old school buildings and furnished. Please consider joining us Individuals
Short-term volunteers fly into Accra usually spend the night in Accra at a B & B before being transfer bus ride to the next day to the project sites. Please contact us for information about airport pick-up service e.t.c. Short term volunteers will pay for their stay at a hotel of choice, transport within the country, food, site seeing charges and registration fees for signing-up with Prime Care Network. Contact us with size of your group and duration of stay to enable us provide you with your billing information to cover your stay in Ghana.

Specialized Volunteers / Administrative Coordinator Volunteers
If you will be visiting our area and would like to see our orphans/street children school and volunteer for a day or a few days, we just might have a spot for you! Depending on present availability and needs, you may be able to present something educational to the orphans/street kids. Lead a lesson on a topic you know well, teach a valuable skill, or discuss educational. We're open to new ideas that enrich our orphans' education. Sometimes we need help with reorganizing and re-shelving library books, lawn and plant care for our playground area, general maintenance of the school, or technical needs of our equipment. We also from time to time, have projects that require additional resources to carry out such as marketing and advertising and help with organizing the upcoming school year. Administrative volunteers are needed from time to time, who would focus on non-teaching administrative duties. If you have particular skills that you'd like to share please contact us and let us know how you might be able to help.
