Community Farm Project offers volunteers the opportunity to work on a small organic farm with local farmers.Whether taking part in a gap year, summer placement or career break, volunteers and two local members of staff are responsible for maintaining all aspects of the farm including animal care, crop-growing, flower-production, herb-cultivation and land-management. In our Environmental Conservation work, Ecologists/Volunteers will be working alongside local and international volunteers to achieve the main key areas of the Conservation project.

Sustainable development and organic agriculture -  All volunteers live with local host-families.

This project is usually combined with another project in the Budumburan rural community, with providing free basic education for orphans and street-kids. These kids are taught with basic subjects such as mathematics, English language, integrated science, drawing, etc, and they are Ghanaian and Liberian children based at the Liberian Refugees Settlement in Ghana.

Volunteers working on the Community Building Project will join a team of international volunteers and local people constructing simple buildings in the local communities.
