Full description:Volunteers are required to teach small groups of youths and adults the basics in first aid through hands-on, interactive workshops. Volunteers will have a pre-written teaching guide, resuscitation mannequins to practice CPR and mouth-to-mouth, and a whiteboard for instructional use. Workshops are one-of-a-kind in the Volta Region and allows people of all backgrounds and demographics to learn under
Additional info:At VAF we do not believe in volunteers paying exorbitant fees and 'administrative costs' when all you want to do is come and make a difference. VAF is a real, practical organization and we know exactly what volunteers need and want.

All program fees are inclusive of accommodation with a local Ghanaian family, food - three meals a day supplied by the host family including drinking water, airport pickup and transfer and a contribution to VAF and your program. As a sign of trust no deposit is required.

As a foreigner in another country the actual volunteering is only part of the stay. As a volunteer you will be submersing yourself in another culture, learning the ways of life from your co-workers, getting to know the local children, and integrating yourself within your host family.
