This rural orphanage seeks to promote the general well-being of orphans, abandoned and needy children by providing a home situation, attention and care, quality formal education and employable skills.
The orphanage runs alongside a mainstream school where the orphans are educated. Focus is on healthcare, in particular on HIV/AIDS prevention. The school board are also keen to educate girls and to keep them in education throughout their teenage years.
Volunteers applying to this should be aware that it is set in very rural settings and that both the school and orphanage, like most organisations in Ghana are Christian.
The school and orphanage requires the following volunteers:
The roles will be quite hectic with a minimum working day of 8hrs required and early starts.
Volunteers must have an interest in child welfare, be compassionate and loving. The orphanage is very rural so volunteers must be prepared to live with shortages, be flexible and tolerant to deal with these different living conditions.
