inside africa volunteer iafrivo volunteer photo
Briefly a volunteer is someone who works for a community or for the benefit of someone primarily because they choose to do so to help. Taking your time off to volunteer in Ghana will be of great reward because there are genuine needs for assistance particularly in schools, orphanages, health care centers, poor communities etc. While volunteering you will have the opportunity to experience a country endowed with breath taking landscapes, changing terrain and exotic coastline. The diversity of culture and people are beautiful and Ghanaians are known to be very welcoming people.

The variety of options available with Inside Africa Volunteer Programs / Projects are really unlimited. We work with different settings, covering teaching, childcare, healthcare, construction, human rights, and conservation among many others. If that is not enough, we can always create new and custom ones using our presence and experience we have, including tailor-made opportunities. These Flexibility and Variety enables us to match volunteer skills and aspirations to a suitable placement and allow volunteers to join us when it is best for them.  Contact IAFRIVO today for a volunteer placement.
