Donations and dates

Our main volunteer period runs from May until September each year. Volunteers are required to be in Ghana for a minimum period of four weeks. For details of specific dates that we are in need of volunteers, please contact us.

Due to the nature of our organisation, we rely on donations from our volunteers. This donation helps us to fund the work that we, with the support of our volunteers, carry out. It also covers the following costs of your trip:

  • Pre-trip support
  • Airport pickup when you arrive
  • Airport drop-off when you leave
  • One night’s accommodation at a hotel in Accra on your first night
  • Transport from Accra to your project in Ho and back to Accra at the end
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner each weekday
  • Accommodation for your entire stay
  • Arrival orientation
  • Pre – departure information
  • 24-hour support
  • The use of a safe in the house for personal belongings

However, volunteers are responsible for arranging their own:

  • Flights
  • Personal insurance (e.g. health insurance, insurance for belongings)
  • Visa
  • Vaccinations
  • Phone Calls
  • Internet Access
  • Meals at the weekend
  • Personal travel during time off
It is important that you read our terms and conditions which will need to be signed and returned once you have been accepted to volunteer.
