"WE TRAVEL TO CHANGE, NOT OUR PLACE BUT OUR IDEAS"
INTRODUCTION TO HOLA GHANA AND OUR PHILOSOPHY OF INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERING
Hola Ghana NGO is a social project that focuses on designing disruptive experiences, creating a change in people as a way of reaching a transformation in society. We develop personal growth spaces; promoting critical consciousness, as well as the identification of our co-responsibility with other communities’ problems with the purpose of developing the human service potential and a social transformation.
We are free from religious and political affiliation, working at the state level to promote the development of needy communities in southern hemisphere countries. We work with these countries' most vulnerable groups and strive to strengthen "third sector" efforts towards international cooperation.
After several years and constant learning, we understood that our approach is different; We are the one´s who are being helped, just like the volunteers who travel to these countries and contribute with local NGOs. We consider that nowadays society´s main problem is the POVERTY OF SOUL, so we designed social experiences that encourage people to get out of the comfort zone and live a conscious life..
We found in social service a great opportunity to make people happier, showing through Oscar´s (Our founder) story how people can change and find life matters. Interact with other cultures, realities, finding themselves and afterwards, relate with others in a more human way.
