Globe Aware
The Glory of Ghana

In Globe Aware's Ghana program, volunteers get to experience first-hand the glory of the Ghanaian culture. Although some of the friendliest and happiest people you'll ever meet, the Ghanaians have limited access to modern tools in their society and consequently often face the challenge of living in unsanitary conditions. By volunteering on this program, you could have the opportunity to change lives in a whole village by building systems to bring them clean water. Volunteers also take part in constructing sanitary systems in schools and improving the facilities at a local orphanage. Lodging includes home stay facilities which can include either running-water showers or scoop showers, flushing toilets, and some basic access to electricity. For fun, volunteers will visit the biggest waterfall in West Africa, learn about the Ghanaian tradition of weaving, and experience dancing and drumming lessons. Come spend time with these smiling people in the beautiful and mountainous Volta region of Africa, and you're sure to be dancing your way back again someday!
