Additional Info:Our project is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that offers a blend of programmes and services for children and young people. Presently we are offering IT classes and require volunteers with basic IT skills to teach youngsters. We also require trainee or experienced teachers to teach in local schools in various subjects. Also people to teach English as a foreign language.
We have applied for a grant to open a centre for children with disabilities, and if successful will require volunteers to help look after the children during the day.

Our project aims to enhance the quality of lives of children and young people through a structured intervention and advocacy programme that offers opportunity for development. Working closely in line with National, Governmental and International Organisations, NGO's and Volunteers, the programme aims to empower children and young people achieve their potential in life. For more information please see our Website.

Volunteers typically teach 4 hours a day, 3 days a week. Friday-Sunday is free time, and we often organize trips around the country so volunteers can experience Ghana.
