VIP invites you to explore Ghana and to learn about its people and culture while also contributing to its growth and development. Since March 2001, when the Government took the bold step of taking advantage of the Enhanced Highly Indebted Poor Countries initiative, more funds have been released for social sector spending and poverty reduction programs. However, an enormous amount of work still needs to be done to bring about an improved economic future for the majority of Ghana's citizens.
In selecting community service projects, VIP has focused on areas of greatest need where not much assistance is available from the government or other NGOs. These areas include Rural Education, Rural Development, Health, Small Scale Enterprises, Orphanages, MarketFilm and Television, and Group Community Service Projects.
VIP works with a number of NGO's and host organizations in Ghana. Available Host Projects reflect changing needs and priorities and may vary from those shown. After you apply, we work closely with your Sending Country and our Host Project organizations to find an appropriate placement that best matches your skills, preferences and capabilities.
Some Sample Project Areas Include:
Come and let us introduce you to a new world where your contribution will truly be felt. One of our recent volunteers, Nina from the Netherlands (2013) stated: " My decision to volunteer in Ghana has been very rewarding. Coming from a highly developed country, I have come to appreciate the very things I take for granted back home such as clean drinking water, which is a challenge to the people of this community. I would recommend this experience to anyone who wants to rediscover themselves and to learn to appreciate life. "
