Want to discover Africa? Start in Ghana!
As a volunteer you will experience the welcoming Ghanaian culture in a more close-up, intensive way than you would as a usual tourist. You will embrace the Mañana-Mañana mentality quicker than you think. This journey to Africa will teach you, what is truly needed (or not needed) to live a happy life.
When coming to Africa for the first time, many young volunteers choose Ghana as their first destination.
Ghana is believed to be one of the safest places on the African continent. It used to be a British colonial state and therefore is seen as the poster country and democracy in west Africa. Furthermore, Ghanaians are very religious people and the majority of the population wouldn’t even consider threatening foreigners. Of course, safety requires you to follow certain rules such as avoiding going out at night or exposing your iPod or other expensive belongings on the streets. At the same time, Ghana offers easy access to the African tradition and lifestyle. Over 250 different dialects are spoken by more than 100 different ethnic groups, all living peacefully together. If you are just beginning your discovery of Africa, start in Ghana.
