Ro-wena Foundation is a volunteer placement organization based in Ghana. We provide safe, affordable and valuable volunteer programms from 1 to 24 weeks in Ghana. Founded in Ghana for volunteers from all over the world, we work with local communities within Ghana and their networks to support in country programs towards our mission – “To help better the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves as well as providing a culturally enriching experience.”


Our vision for volunteering in Ghana is: "To enable the participation of all citizens in voluntary activities which meets their own and the community's needs in ways which make a difference."


The mission of Ro-Wena Foundation Ghana in support of this vision is as follows:

To help better the lives of those less fortunate than us and providing a culturally enriching experience. Ro-Wena Foundation Ghana seeks to be a ladder in local volunteering. We are user-bringing together local expertise and knowledge of voluntary action in Ghana.




Engaging in a meaningful volunteer work is our main priority. We know your time is precious, so we want to make sure you can make the most out of every minute you spend in Ghana. We have created structured programmes with the people that need help and volunteers most, to make sure your help is most effective and creates the best impact.


Our lead coordinator in Ghana has lots of past experience working with tourists and will help advise the best things to do with your time here, as well as help plan your trips and weekend excursions to make sure they run smoothly and safely. If you have any questions before about the things you can do and the trips you can take aside of the volunteering programmes we run, please get in touch via email or phone call and we’re more than happy to help.

We also have a social network via Facebook where we put you in touch with all fellow volunteers. You can ask questions to past volunteers, or read un-bias reviews about their time here. Or you can speak to upcoming volunteers in which you will be travelling with so you can get to know them and start planning your Ghanaian adventure.


You will also get the chance to meet like-minded people who you’ll share incredible experiences with and make long lasting friendships! Moreover, every project we run and every community we work with is regularly risk-free so both you and your families will have the peace of mind that you are safe here in Ghana – already one of the safest and most peaceful countries in the whole of Africa. On top of this we provide comprehensive travel insurance so even if something does go wrong, you’ll be in safe hands.

One of the most exciting aspects of the programme is that you will not only get to help others but you will also get to see, travel and experience the Ghanaian culture we have and traditions we uphold with other volunteers on the programme, so you won’t need to worry if you’re travelling alone.
