TANF supports the neediest people within Ghana, by providing them with an education and access to health care. We believe this is an investment into a brighter future for our country.
We work in Ghana to provide impoverished, vulnerable and street children with Health Care and Education.
We need volunteers to help with teaching in one of our partner schools (any subject of your preferred choice), helping in local hospitals (i.e. during child delivery in the Maternity Unit), holding HIV/Aids awareness talks etc. These are only a few examples of the things you could be doing and we are willing to accommodate you with any skills you may have. If you have an idea in which area you would like to volunteer you can also let us know and we will see if such an opportunity is available.

If you are interested in volunteering in the Health sector you will be able to work at a local hospital and help with consultations and basic health services
In addition, you will have time to explore this beautiful country and learn about its culture and language (while spending a lot less money than the normal tourist).
