Globe Aware's one week long Ghana project takes place is in the beautiful Jasikan district. Jasikan and surrounding communities are facing a variety of challenges ranging from lack of clean water in rural areas to a workforce untrained in the use of modern tools such as the internet, something many there view as a necessity if Ghana is to progress. Nor are there currently enough teachers or facilities to offer free education to all children, many roads are not paved and the republic is still heavily dependent on international financial and technical assistance.


Projects

Volunteers will work with a locally organized group but with projects in numerous surrounding villages. Projects are in one of two areas: the first is supporting rural communities through a variety of objectives and second are activities related to global education and intercultural learning.


With larger groups, these projects include the building of school blocks for kindergartners, instruction, or improvement of washrooms and facilities that the children use (often times current conditions are extremely unsanitary.)


Volunteers might also help with the construction of wells or water systems, which can save lives in the dry season, or build libraries or internet training centers.


The second project area is helping teach English, raise awareness about & prevention of hepatitis B, HIV/AIDS, reforestation education and prevention of child labor. Efforts in Ghana have a great deal of support in the local communities, and volunteers will be cherished and appreciated as they help the people of Ghana, on projects that are important to them, and learn to see and experience their culture in a way that few rarely ever do.
