Volunteer in Ghana

Meaning Warrior King, Ghana is a country praised for its political stability, and has seen great progress and growth over the last two decades. However, it’s a country of two halves. As an ICS volunteer in Ghana you’ll be delivering positive, lasting change in the North, a region that has seen progress stalled or even reversed compared to the South.

From supporting partners to promote the rights and freedoms of people living with disabilities, developing cooperatives for farmers, delivering sexual health and education projects, or paving the way to Fair Trade status for your Ghanaian community, you can really make a difference as an ICS volunteer in Ghana.
