Accra is a Cultural and Volunteer Trips location
Home to four million people, Accra is many different cities in one. The office buildings in the business district reflect the growth of one of the most important economies in Africa, rich in cocoa, gold and oil. The lively neighborhoods in the city center host a mix of cultures, languages and religions.
Our cultural trips explore the history and traditions of Ghanian life. Whether it be watching and learning local dances, experiencing a “rites-of-passage” ceremony, shopping for local handcrafts, visiting rural villages, Ghana offers the cultural/educational participant a host of fun, immersive and unique experiences.
The volunteer projects are based in a neighborhood about 45 minutes outside Accra. The community faces many challenges, including poor infrastructure and sanitation, high unemployment and limited access to health services. In Accra you have many volunteer opportunities, including teaching in local schools, assisting in campaigns to fight malaria and other preventable diseases and participating in an initiative to stop child labor.
