Volunteering in Ghana

Support local communities while experiencing life in this colourful West African country

Volunteer in Ghana with Projects Abroad and contribute to the development of community initiatives in this beautiful West African country. You’ll work towards our long-term goals and support local communities while experiencing life in Ghana.


We offer several different volunteer opportunities in Ghana. You can promote early childhood development in childcare centres, or coach football to disadvantaged students. Or, help provide free basic healthcare services in rural areas, where these services are limited.   


We have dedicated staff who will provide you with 24/7 support if you need it.


This beautiful place has something unique to offer for everyone. You can visit historical museums, hike through rolling hills, or sample traditional Ghanaian cuisine.

Where we are based in Ghana

Akuapem Hills

Located in the Eastern Region of Ghana, Akuapem Hills is characterised by vibrant green vegetation and rich red earth. As one of the quieter regions, children calling 'Obroni’ (foreigner) as they try to catch your attention will be unmistakable. The villages are welcoming and know how to entertain! When volunteering in Ghana, join in on the street festivities or try dried fish and yams at a food stall on the main street. The bustling city of Accra is within easy reach for a day trip.


Come prospero centro commerciale e capitale, Accra è il luogo perfetto per iniziare il tuo viaggio nell'Africa occidentale. Con una popolazione di oltre 2,7 milioni di persone tra le più ospitali, Accra è una città costantemente umida e piena di avvenimenti colorati. Puoi aspettarti un traffico pazzesco, una cultura vibrante e strade costellate di ristoranti ghanesi e venditori ambulanti che vendono i loro prodotti fatti a mano.

Airport pickup, flights and visas

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Ghana Arrival Procedures page.
