Discover the colorful culture of Ghana when you volunteer alongside local teachers and caretakers on our Ghana Childcare volunteer project. Your work will include conducting educational workshops and child development programs. Make a vital contribution to the lives of children as Ghana childcare project volunteer.

Volunteer in Ghana on a Go Volunteer Africa’s childcare volunteer project and provide ample care to children in need of support. Through Ghana childcare volunteer project you get to help needy children from teaching English and coaching sports in underprivileged areas to taking care of children at orphanages and providing support for street children.

Go Volunteer Africa offers a meaning volunteer experience in Ghana on the childcare volunteer project. At this volunteer project in Ghana, you assist under-resourced and understaffed daycare centers with educational programming, English instruction, and fun activities. Each day, you get the chance to help give children the education they deserve and restore lost hope.


  • Help with breakfast and prepare the children for school
  • Assist with lessons and teach English 3-4 hours a day in the local school
  • Lead sports, art, games, picture books, music activities
  • Organize fun activities when the children return from school
  • Prepare food for dinner

Naturally, volunteers working with children must possess a fair amount of flexibility and patience. Ideally, volunteers should have some experience in working with children – whether it be baby sitting, or something in a more formal context of working in a day care or pre-school.

By helping with childcare and routine tasks like cleaning up, painting and grounds keeping, volunteers ensure that the full time staff have time to fulfill their duties or even take an overdue day off when appropriate. The main goal is to provide needy children with access to better education and help them develop emotionally so they can have the self-confidence and strength to pursue their dreams. It’s a truly great volunteer project in Ghana, and your impact will be felt immediately.


Due to extreme poverty, ill health, hundreds of children in Ghana are given refuge in community-care centers and shelters run by various non-governmental organizations. The children who find themselves at one of these facilities have often come from tremendously difficult and traumatic circumstances, leaving them distressed and detached from the joys of childhood we so often take for granted.

The aim of this wonderful childcare volunteer program in Ghana then is to assist in helping with, and caring for these neglected children, and the assistance of volunteers is desperately needed. Volunteers in Ghana will participate in the daily routines and can make a great contribution just by being caring and giving the children some much-needed attention. By being there to offer care and compassion, volunteers are making a huge impact on the lives of these wonderful children.

Go Volunteer Africa offers you the opportunity to work with our Ghana childcare volunteer project in Accra and neighboring areas. The reason to starting this project is to the aim of helping and supporting the children in difficult circumstances especially runaways, orphans, and street children in Ghana. Our local teams provide community based rehabilitation and child development support.

The Ghana ChildCare volunteer project support daycare centres, community outreach projects and schools to promote education and break the cycle of poverty within the communities of Ghana. As a volunteer in Ghana you will work alongside the local team to create exciting sessions to develop children’s creative and communication skills. Developing their English vocabulary and experiencing a classroom environment sets the groundwork before they start school.

Go Volunteer Africa’s Volunteers in Ghana also design creative and fun games and lead arts and craft activities at community outreach projects and a disabled school which the children would not usually have the opportunity to take part in.
