Ghana is still reckoned to be the safest African Country and the one to visit if this is your first experience of Africa. The people are friendly, laid back and helpful. They really want you to have a good time and to see Ghana in a positive light and will always offer help if you ask, and even if you don’t! Because much travel is dependent on taxis and trotros, time keeping is variable, and things VERY rarely start on time. There is a “god will provide” approach and while this can be very positive it can make life frustrating at times. No one works in Ghana without becoming extremely frustrated, but learning to accept the pace of life there and the constant optimism that things will work out is all part of the life changing experience of living and working abroad. The Ghanaians have a great deal to share with us about how to approach life and enjoy it.

how would you like to Volunteer in Ghana


By volunteering with Agape in Ghana , you will be contributing to established projects in areas which are in real need. It is one of the most rewarding ways of making a difference in the world around you. You will be living and working alongside local people, exploring a new culture whilst helping them to build a better future. If there are two project areas you are interested in, you can even combine two placements to create your own unique experience.

You will be assigned your own personal trip adviser who will guide you through the booking process and answer any questions you might have. They will be available to support you from receiving your application until finishing your placement. They will send you a copy of the information booklet relating to your placement to make sure you are as well prepared as possible. We want you to be completely happy with your booking, so your programme fees are fully refundable up to 30 days before you travel. You can also volunteer with a friend or as part of a group. If you feel unable to volunteer or wish to make a difference without giving up extended periods of time, you are invited to donate to one of our projects instead. 80p in every £1 donated goes directly to fund our projects in the places where it is needed most.
