Volunteer Opportunity description

The orphanage & child care program seeks to address the numerous problems that many children without proper education, health care, food, love and attention face as a result of their parents not being there for them. Orphans everywhere need care and volunteers will be placed in either rural or urban environments where they will teach, love and care for these less fortunate children.

Volunteers will design and execute effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the children's talent and abilities through human interaction and care. This program will also give volunteers an opportunity to explore and understand the Ghanaian people and their culture. Volunteers can bring along sweets, books, pencils and music instrument to help entertain the kids and assist with activities. These supplies can generally be bought in Ghana if packing is limited (GCS actually encourages this as it brings more money into the Ghanaian economy as opposed to buying the goods in our home countries).

Volunteers are also required to provide some basic English education to the children, and organize sports lessons and assist the staff in counselling the children. The rewards from this volunteer project are endless. You can spread happiness and also receive it from the laughter of the young people you are helping. You will be required to be creative, independent and not afraid to use your own initiative. You are given a lot of freedom and flexibility to do what you see fit for the benefit of the orphans.
