Volunteers live in the heart of an African village and play a vital role in the charity's life changing development work. Volunteers have helped to build schools, health centres, rain water harvesting taps and toilet blocks to improve sanitation. Depending on what stage the building work is when you join your volunteer role may involve:
Experienced local masons, carpenters and builders will teach you the required skills and will supervise your work so no previous building experience is required. However volunteers with building experience are greatly appreciated since they can share their skills with the local team.
The new school buildings and resources has led to the children having an increased pride and enthusiasm to attend and learn throughout the year which has resulted in to better results and futures for the children.
The new water harvesting hand washing facilities and health education projects are aiming to reduce preventable diseases to improve the health of the community.
Your time assisting the local team and the donation that all volunteer make will have a direct impact on the local African community. Without the funding from volunteers, the community would not be able to afford the local building developments which help to improve the local standard of living through access to safe drinking water and toilets.
With assistance from volunteers, the team run hand washing and sanitation projects in 10 communities in Ghana. They have taught the importance of good hygiene to over 3,000 children and this also had a positive impact on the local community since now 90% of the parents of those children taught understand the importance of germs and hand washing.
