Children in Africa can find themselves orphaned due to health/physical conditions, family deaths or simply because they are not wanted. These children, disadvantaged from the start, need the love and care of volunteers who will help tutor the students, read to them, cook, clean, and most importantly, open their hearts and nurture them through the most important years of their lives.

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.
