Teaching Volunteering in Ghana
One of the major initiatives post independence in Ghana was ?Free education for All?. Numerous coups and political unrest for about 30 years coupled with radical changes in educational programs and low wages for teachers resulted in gradual decline of elementary and secondary school teachers. Currently the insufficient number of teachers as is the case in most developing countries has remained a major problem in Ghana. Your contribution to teach English or any other subjects will be highly appreciated and fulfilling to yourself.
International volunteers abroad in the teaching programs in Ghana will assist teachers in the class, teaching English, Math, Science, arts and crafts. Other duties may include playing and leading activities and games, and helping kids with their homework.
Combination of Programs
In addition to Volunteer placement in Ghana, the International Volunteer Travel also offers opportunities for Internships Abroad in Ghana, a Language and Cultural Experience, and Ghana Adventure Tours and Holidays. We have placement for individuals, Gap year students and discounted offers for groups of volunteers wanting to be placed together in our Ghana projects.
