Orphanage Work in Ghana
We provide the opportunity for worldwide volunteers and interns to work in the orphanage homes by teaching and taking care of the vulnerable children. This placement is meant to create new life into these unfortunate and neglected children by sharing fun, love, and education to them. This project includes orphanages and day care centers for children who live at the orphanage until they are adopted by families that can well take care of them.
Lots of orphanages in Ghana are poorly managed with limited staff, and face lots of problems to run the homes. For that matter, the centers need volunteers to help with the day-to-day activities like cleaning, cooking, and serving food to the children. Volunteers are also required to provide some basic English education to the children, and organize physical and sports lessons.
Roles of Volunteers and Interns
These children’s age may range from 3 months and 12 years. Volunteers and interns should give love, hope, care, and education to hopeless orphan kids in Ghana. In this project, duties may include:
