A Volunteer Teaching English in Ghana

Volunteer in Ghana

BaseCamp's program in Ghana began in 2005 and has expanded considerably over the years. Ghana now has placements in several parts of the country offering volunteers a great selection of both urban and rural placements.

In recent years a particular effort has been made to develop more placements outside of Accra. This is largely due to the fact that we have found a pressing need for volunteer assistance in many rural communities where even in a short period volunteers are able to have a significant impact.

Many volunteers come to Ghana working on social and educational projects. However, we also have several medical and nursing volunteers who find that the lack of a significant language barrier allows them access to a wider range of placement options.
