Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Volunteer role at the project:

Volunteers are needed to support the teaching and ongoing community work in Ghana. We have roles available for volunteers with and without teaching experience.

Teaching volunteers with experience are able to draw on their own skills and have the opportunity to get involved in the following lessons when required:

  • English
  • Music
  • Art
  • Maths
  • IT
  • Sport
  • Geography

Volunteers with teaching experience can work alongside the local teachers to support lessons and run lessons in specific topics. The students at the local primary and middle school are aged between 6 to 21 years old.

Volunteers that do not have teaching experience run after school and lunch time sessions which can include:

  • Playing educational games
  • Creative arts and crafts
  • Songs, music and dance
  • Organising quizzes and competitions
  • Playing sports

When the schools are on holiday, the team of volunteers organise popular school holiday activities camps for the local children.

Teaching volunteers work with the local team to educate local communities on the importance of hand washing and school attendance through interactive sessions.

How the project is making a difference:

Although English is the national language of Ghana, the level of English in this area is low. All primary and secondary school subjects in Ghana are taught in English, so a good understanding of the language is vital for furthering their education. Education is key to solving many of the root causes of poverty and by providing additional English tuition, volunteers are directly improving the children’s prospects.

Increasing health education and the understanding of hygiene through the charity initiative means that less children fall ill from preventable diseases, and thus less time is taken off school unwell.

Why volunteers are needed:

Volunteering as a teacher in Ghana allows the school pupils to increase their level of conversational English, as well as receive new teaching concepts from experienced teachers in the classroom. Experienced teachers are able to share their skills and techniques with the local teachers.

Volunteers are able to provide additional lessons to the school which has limited resources by providing lunch time, after school and holiday classes.

Die Freiwilligen-Organisation stellt sich vor

We are an award winning non-profit organisation arranging ethical, inspiring and supported volunteering opportunities around the world since 2001. Volunteers are needed from 1- 12 weeks for animal, conservation, child care, education, teaching, building and community volunteering projects in Asia, Africa and Central & South America.

In this time of uncertainty during the current Coronavirus outbreak, we are monitoring the global situation closely in conjunction with the UK FCDO and our local teams on the ground. The health and safety of our volunteers is our primary concern and we will only restart placements when it’s safe to do so. It’s not yet clear when this will be but we aren’t accepting new bookings for placements before 1 June 2021.

We want to reassure volunteers that you can feel confident booking an overseas volunteering placement with us and we have introduced extra flexibility to help with this.

Flexible payment terms
We are giving added flexibility on payments. Normally we ask for final payment by 8 weeks before start date, but we are reducing this to 1 month before start date for placements with start dates in 2020 and 2021. This takes some pressure off volunteers and allows us to see how the situation evolves over the coming months.

Flexible date changes
If any of our volunteers want or need to reschedule (regardless of whether it is related to Coronavirus or not!), we are happy to reschedule for up to 18 months. You just need to let us know 1 month or more before your placement date and it can be open ended if you aren’t sure when you want to reschedule to. We are keeping this free of charge for maximum flexibility!

Booking flights – wait for now
We normally recommend that volunteers book flights as soon as possible after their placement is confirmed to secure the best deals, but with the current uncertainty, it’s best to wait until travel restrictions are lifted and the airlines can confirm their schedules before booking flights and making other arrangements.

We’d love to help organise your next volunteer adventure, ready for when the world has returned to some kind of normality!
