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 abroad in search of lucrative teaching contract, because of this we welcome any assistance from volunteers to teach basic causes like English, French, Computer, Mathematics or Science from pre-schools, primary, junior high or senior 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 12months.
Your contribution will go a long way to make a difference in children 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 causes like English, Computer, Mathematics or Science from pre-schools, primary, junior high or senior high school. You may also be involved in creative projects and non-classroom based activities, which help create a stimulating learning environment.
The most effective volunteers come to Child Survival Aid Ghana with a positive life-loving attitude, a strong work ethic, flexibility, realism and a sense of humor. Typically, volunteers may arrive with the expectation that living conditions are more primitive than they are. However, they are often not aware of how hard they are expected to work. We also seek candidates whose main motive is to help the children and be models.
Volunteers are an essential component of our work in creating school places for disadvantaged children. Your spare time can help us improve our fundraising, administration or programmes activity, which ultimately benefits our work in the field improving the lives of vulnerable children. The benefit to you is the opportunity to gain new skills through memorable experiences. Plus, the warm fuzzy feeling that you've played a role in benefiting the lives of some of the most vulnerable.

What we Provide
The volunteers in Ghana live with a local family within the proximity of the project site. Getting to experience cultural immersion within a Ghanaian family makes one’s stay in Ghana uniquely memorable. The family will be on hand to help you and also show you around the local area. The host family provides breakfast and dinner (or all three meals if you are at your accommodation during weekends). At lunch breaks on working days, you can sample local cuisine at modestly priced cafes and restaurants.
The cuisine is flavorsome; if sample. The best known Ghanaian staple is fufu, which consists of a basic starchy ingredient such as cassava, yam, plantain or rice. You may also be served different types of stew, be it fish, chicken or vegetable. Fried plantain is another popular local dish
