Make a REAL difference in Ghana with Childcare and Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This wonderful program aims to make the lives of vulnerable children better. Its mission is to simply provide quality care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Ghana. Working at an orphanage in Ghana is likely to be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of a volunteers life. In orphanages and children’s homes, volunteers assist in caring for destitute and abandoned children and orphans, some of whom have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS. Volunteers will provide hands on care to children, assisting them with their daily needs, and also spend time playing and interacting with children in dire need of love and attention. With orphanages grossly underfunded and under resourced, volunteer labor is essential to continue to provide care to these children, and help them to lead happy and healthy lives. By being there to offer care and compassion, volunteers are making a huge impact on the lives of these wonderful children.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children in Ghana
- Improve the future prospects of the children in Ghana
- Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the development of Ghana's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
