VOLUNTEERING IN GHANA
HOLA GHANA offers you the opportunity to volunteer in a local NGO, serving and helping others, being part of the change. We consider that international experiences are a good way for personal growth, helping participants develop their potential of service. Besides, it provides skills and professional competences.
Ghana is located on the West Coast of Africa along the Gulf of Guinea and on the Greenwich Meridian, Ghana is bordered by Burkina Faso to the North, Cote D ́Ivore to the West, Togo to the East and the Atlantic Ocean to the South..
Experiencing extreme poverty changes people radically and it shakes them to the core. Seeing up close destitution for the first time is shocking, Spending time around poverty even without sharing it, constantly contemplating it, forces you to react.
There is real commitment with local NGOs. We ask for donations in order to develop foundational activities and cover our own operational costs; A great portion of those donations goes directly to the local NGO. For more information, click here.
