Where we are based in Ghana
You can volunteer in Ghana in four different locations which are within a few hours of one another. Depending on your project, you could work in Accra, Cape Coast, Akuapem Hills, or Dodowa.
Accra is the capital city, and is a prosperous trading center. It’s the perfect place to start your journey into West Africa. It has a population of over 2.7 million people, with a friendly atmosphere. The city is colorful with a constant buzz. You can expect crazy traffic, a vibrant culture, and streets dotted with Ghanaian restaurants and market vendors selling their handmade goods.
This town is located in the Eastern Region of Ghana. It’s in a quieter region characterized by lush green vegetation and rich red earth. You’ll hear children calling 'Obroni’ (foreigner) to try catch your attention. The villages are welcoming and know how to entertain! Join in on the street festivities or try dried fish and yams at a food stall on the main street.
Cape Coast was once the largest slave trade center in West Africa during colonial rule, and is now a vibrant fishing town. Cape Coast has become a hotspot for tourists and history buffs. Historical museums and the worn colonial buildings that stand tall along the streets are among the visual representations of the city’s once sad past.
Dodowa is a smaller, more traditional town in Ghana. Because it is small, it is easier to get to know the locals and experience life in a traditional Ghanaian community. The town is only a short drive away from the both Accra and Akuapem Hills.
