The orphanage is a very flexible placement option as there is a wide range of activities you can choose to do there. Whether you want to help bath and dress the children, play sporting activities with them, give them extra school lessons or help out with daily chores, both the orphanage workers and the children will hugely appreciate your work and you can see the vast difference it makes to them.
Accommodation And Meals
The accommodation is basic but will provide all of the essentials such as electricity and even a flushing toilet, something you will soon learn is luxury in Ghana! All rooms are equipped with a fan, bed, and cupboards or wardrobes for you to keep your things in. The accommodation is secure, so in the evenings you'll be able to relax, knowing you're in a safe environment. On top of this, you'll be immersing yourself into Ghanaian culture by living with a host family so you'll be able to witness all the traditions and activities we perform on a regular basis.
Volunteers will be provided with breakfast, lunch and dinner every day during their stay with us.
Here's an example of the meals you can expect:
Cereals, milk, tea/coffee and bread
Noodles, rice, fried plantain and beans, KFC also available
Rice, chicken, eggs, spaghetti, stew, yams, fufu, soup
