What could be more rewarding than immersing oneself in a new culture and empowering communities by helping them achieve the awareness necessary to have greater control over their environment? Community development breaks down into many different categories, but is generally defined as social groups of people working together towards a common goal to build a stronger community.
Community Development projects offer a variety of opportunities for international volunteers that are often unique to the location they are set in but the shared purpose is to improve the circumstances of local communities. The work is often quite mixed, so Education volunteers Ghana (Eduvolgh) designs unique and tailor-made initiatives to get projects off the ground which benefits different groups of people.
As a community development volunteer, you will help improve and support sustainable development initiatives for community growth, focusing on areas as education, youth development, micro-enterprise, construction, sanitation, agriculture and health. You will also conduct lessons for women's empowerment while working with youths in communities on projects that promote personal hygiene, health education, environmental awareness, sporting and recreational activities.
Volunteers willing to do some physical work will assist in the construction work for a local school, help in renovation and painting. If you are a computer literate or an IT expert and wish to put your experience into good use, you will assist the local community to capitalize on technologies by teaching computer and multimedia skills and data processing. You will also facilitate a training workshop to help promote ideas on development activities by using the computer.
