Child Survival Aid Ghana
What We Need
Ghana is a country of dramatic change and optimism, which is reflected in the schools in which we work. Though they are often over-crowded, understaffed and under-funded, a real enthusiasm and a hope for the future seem to permeate through the students. It is going to be hard to maintain this as more and more skilled teachers continue to leave for EUROPE and AMERICA in search of lucrative teaching contract, because of this we welcome any assistance from volunteers to teach basic subjects like English, French, Computer, Mathematics or Science from per-schools, primary and junior high schools. You don’t need qualification to be part of our teaching project just basic knowledge of the subjects. You can volunteer for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of 12 months.
Your contribution will go a long way to make a difference in a Child's life. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break. All we require is a good standard of spoken English.
You will find a warm welcome awaits you from our students. Assisting teachers in schools with limited resources provides an engaging environment for educating children and teenagers. Your ideas, your energy, and your presence are exciting for students and invigorating for the teachers and parents. The students are full of curiosity about the world around them and they welcome your perspective, you will also serve or be seen as a positive role models to students, you will assist to teach basic subjects like English, Computer, Mathematics or Science from per-schools, primary, junior high schools. You may also be involved in creative projects and non-classroom based activities, which help create a stimulating learning environment.

Other Ways to Help
