See full itinerary

Get a real sense of achievement and become a teaching volunteer in Ghana. Many schools in Ghana are hugely underfunded and understaffed, meaning that lesson content can be limited and repetitive.

Destination info

Ghana is in West Africa and renowned for having the warmest, friendliest people. It borders the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Togo and the Atlantic Ocean. Ghana is considered one of the safest places in Africa, with some of the friendliest people on the continent.

 

Ghanaians are traditionally very welcoming people and they pride themselves on the peaceful state, with very low crime rate.

 

Accra is Ghana’s capital city and estimated to have a population of around two million. Accra is a large, sprawling city that is developing very fast. It is situated on the coast, with a port and several beach hotels where tourists may stay. Like any African Capital it is large, dusty, energetic, dirty, busy, and yet charming and unique!

 

How have previous volunteers helped the project? We asked our in-country team…

“We have had so many volunteers that have come and have made a huge difference.

 

The NGO was set up 15 years ago when the founder noticed that a lot of children don’t go to school and were missing out on an education. Government schools are free in Ghana, however, books are required and these are at an additional cost. Parents could not afford the books and therefore their children don’t go to school.

 

The NGO centre was originally set up under a mango tree with 7 children. There ae now over 200 children from the ages of 3 -18 and they are all offered free education.

 

 

The volunteers come and teach either one on one or a whole class. When the volunteers are there the children absolutely love it. They are so keen to learn and really appreciate and want the help. They often come up to the volunteers and ask for more homework, as they really want to learn.”

  • Location: Accra, Ghana

Ghana Teaching Volunteers gives you a fantastic opportunity to really help with the education of children in Ghana’s capital, Accra. We work with a number of schools in the local area which cater for two different key stage levels, being Junior High School and Senior High School.


Teachers in Ghana are often overworked and as such are unable to introduce fun and exciting exercises or extra-curricular activities for the students to become involved in. As a volunteer in one of the local schools, you will focused on teaching core subjects but creating lessons that are fun and interactive and introducing some new activities to really help enrich the education that the children receive during your time at the school.

It is situated on the coast, with a port and several beach hotels where tourists may stay. Like any African Capital it is large, dusty, energetic, dirty, busy, and yet charming and unique!

  • Location: Accra, Ghana

As a volunteer on this fantastic programme, you will be placed in one of a number of local schools near Ghana’s capital Accra. You’ll have the choice of being placed at either the Junior or Senior High School, depending on which age group you feel most comfortable teaching.


You’ll be tasked with creating and delivering classes that are inspiring, fun, exciting and interactive with the aim to improve the levels of literacy, numeracy and communication of the students in your classes. Your main focus will be on the core subjects of English, Maths, Science and Social Studies; but the project is flexible so if you can opt to focus on just on one particular subject that you are interested in and feel most comfortable with.

 

In addition to taking the regular lessons in core subjects, you may also like to introduce some extra-curricular activities to your class including art and design, music, sports and drama to name but a few. As these subjects may not be things that are normally included in lessons, it would be a good idea to bring some equipment along to help you start these activities with the children. By introducing new extra-curricular activities to the children it helps them diversify the subjects that they learn on a day to day basis and will also help them develop their English language skills outside of the normal environment of the classroom, boosting their confidence and vocabulary.

 

Class sizes at the schools do vary, but are usually between 20 and 30 students. Similarly to most schools, the schools that you will be placed in do follow a set curriculum, similar to your home country, which you will need to incorporate and follow in your lessons and planning. As part of your induction to the programme and your project work, the Ghanaian curriculum will be explained to you so that you are aware of the lesson content that you will need to cover.

  • Location: Accra, Ghana

For the first few days of your programme, you will have a fantastic orientation to really help you get settled in to your new surroundings and get to grips with how things work in Ghana. You’ll receive an orientation briefing covering lots of useful information relating to your programme and Ghana in general. In addition you’ll also be taken on a tour of Accra including visits to the craft markets, shops, bars, banks and of course the lovely local beach!


You’ll receive plenty of help and assistance with tasks such as lesson planning, discipline in the classroom and cultural courtesies, from a number of sources including our in-country team, the local teachers at your school, as well as other volunteers. You will be placed alongside one of the local teachers to begin with until you have learnt the ropes and are comfortable leading the class and taking control. Once you have mastered this, you can choose to either take the classes on your own or with a fellow volunteer if you prefer. Although this may seem daunting you will no doubt have an amazing sense of achievement when your time on this volunteer programme comes to an end.


You will typically be volunteering from Monday to Friday for between 6 and 8 hours each day. During your free time you will need to make sure that you set aside some time for lesson planning and preparation; by ensuring that your lessons are thought through and well prepared it will enable you to deliver your lessons feeling comfortable and confident; it will also no doubt give you as very big sense of achievement as you see improvement and progression amongst your students the more you teach them, leaving you with memories that will last a life time. 

 

Please note: During August schools are closed for the holiday period, which means normal lessons do not run. If you are volunteering during this month you will be helping out on the recess program which runs throughout August and will also give volunteers a chance to teach.

Chance to help these children after school: 3 weeks

In addition to your main placement, you will have the opportunity to teach classes, or assist in teaching classes with our football school based in Teshie- Accra. With a western education, you will be able to contribute massively to the standard of tuition that the students receive. Subject areas include English (language and literature), math, science, journalism, business, IT, RE and a whole variety of extra-curricular activities.

 

In addition, you can get involved with coaching your favourite sport in the afternoon helping disadvantage children reach their full potential in Sports, Education and Health using sports as a tool to achieve that.

 

The after school project was launched in recognition of the need to support children with their education as well as providing them with sporting opportunities.

 

We are aware of the pressure that young sporting talent put on themselves whilst trying to fulfil their sporting ambitions. This determination to succeed in sport is often pursued to the detriment of children’s school work. Put simply – when you’re eager to hit the football pitch after school, homework is the last thing on your mind! 

 

The after school programme offers homework help, extra tuition and exam revision for those children who may otherwise struggle to keep up due to their dedication to sport.

 

This is a great opportunity to share your knowledge with disadvantage but enthusiastic children in Teshie-Accra area.

Please note: you may be the only volunteer at your chosen project at any one time. However, each of our Ghana volunteer projects share the same accommodation. Therefore, if there are volunteers on our other programmes you will be able to spend your spare time and evenings with them. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us

 

Accommodation

Throughout your placement in Ghana you will be accommodated in a shared volunteer house in Teshie, near the capital city of Accra. Centrally located, you are in easy reach of local shops, banks, bars and even the beach!

 

You’ll be sharing a room with other participants on the programme, normally there are between 4 and 8 people sharing a room. There are also shared bathroom facilities including toilets and showers.

 

The house is basic but comfortable and has some lovely communal areas where you can chill out during your free time and socialise with fellow participants. 

 

Meals

Three meals per day will be provided for you, the food will be basic but nutritious.

 

Transport from your accommodation to your project each day is not included in the programme, so you will need to make your own way to and fro. During the first few days of your programme, a member of our in-country team will accompany you to show you how to use the local transport system and ensure that you are happy and comfortable doing so before you start making the journey on your own. 

 

 

Advice & Safety

Throughout your programmes you will have the support and guidance of the programme co-ordinator and team. You will be provided with competent assistance and help with any questions or advice you may need during your stay.

 

You will be assigned a personal travel advisor who will co-ordinate your programme with you. Feel free to contact them at any time before you go, or when you are on your travels.

 

In addition, you will have access to a 24 hour emergency contact number so you can contact one of our UK staff at any time should you need to.

What were the highlights of your trip?

The best part of Ghana Experience was the last week which included the Mole National Park safari, both the walking and the guided car tour were great fun, we were able to see lots of animals and get up close to them. The mountain climb and waterfall trip in the Volta region were also a highlight. The mountain trek was quite physically and mentally demanding but offered a great sense of achievement.

There is no such thing as being on time in Ghana, it is inevitable that you will find yourself waiting for pretty much everything, you just have to relax and embrace it. Be prepared to eat plenty of rice and chicken, there are local alternatives but I wouldn't always recommend them. Everyone raves about Banku... I didn't. Bring lots of spare undewear, more than you need, the washing facilities are a bucket of water and soap, which is fine but everything will smell the same in the end.

Try to get in contact with the Ghana Volunteer Project before you travel, they will give you more of an idea of what to expect when you arrive and of the trips available. Book a longer trip, take more money and be prepared for bucket showers - they're not that bad trust me! DO IT!!!! Enjoy every moment! :)

What were the highlights of your trip?

The flexibility when we got there, we did a few days in the local school, a few days at the UCC (Underprivileged children's centre) and United through sport program. James and Micheal were our co ordinators in Ghana and we could not have asked for better people in an unknown country. highlights were chalk drawing on the play ground, taking the kids swimming and teaching them how to do handstands.
