"ONCE A YEAR, SEE SOME PLACE TO
WHOM YOU DID NOT GO BEFORE ".
VOLUNTEERING AND INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN HOLA GHANA
We develop spaces for personal growth, promoting a critical awareness as well as the identification of our co-responsibility with the problems of other communities, with the objective of developing the human potential of service and social transformation.
Hola Ghana ONGd works so that people interested in any of the opportunities in Africa, India, Colombia and Mexico have more information prior to the trip and know in broad strokes the situation that they are going to find and the work they are going to perform. In addition, it is about making visible to society those organizations whose small size does not correspond to the large size of the help and work they do every day for the most disadvantaged.
We design experiences based on three axes: First, the "Theory of Shock", bringing volunteers closer to extreme poverty, which leaves no one indifferent and encourages them to take action. Secondly, the connection with local leaders, so that they can have impact conversations and understand another way of defining success in life and finally the visit to innovation projects or social impact, so that they understand that reality can be transformed.

The main factors that differentiate us when it comes to understanding cooperation are the following:
In the first place, we believe in a cooperation to the self-determination of the peoples, promoting the empowerment of its inhabitants. We do not accept the term of development cooperation since it is wrong from its very nature, as we consider these societies in many more developed aspects.
Second, we believe in decolonization in cooperation with societies in the South. We always collaborate with local organizations, analyzing the needs they detect, as better aware of the context and history, trying not to impose our western conception. Together we determine the best way to cover them according to our possibilities and establishing priorities, always coordinating projects horizontally with the directors so that they finally appropriate them and without considering at any time establishing delegations in other territories. We try to be consistent with the social reality where most of the projects that fail, are due to an error in the initial analysis due to the limited time and less dedication to this decisive process.
