  • Description

    Description

    We are a multicultural and bilingual French/English speaking family owning and operating a medium sized ecolodge situated at the southern most point of Ghana, in Western region. We have a 5 years old daughter and a 1 and a half year old son. We achieve a sustainable lifestyle in a wide variety of ways including the use of solar and organic farming. Our construction focuses on the use of local and recycled materials combining traditional and innovative methods. Our location (the closest eco lodge to the center of the earth (4°N,2°W) allows us to use tourism to help protect sea turtles and the last remaining semi deciduous coastal forest in Ghana. We believe that responsibly minded private industry can lead the way to sustainable positive change in Ghana.

    Thanks to our location, welcoming family and our team, we can offer you a unique opportunity to get involved. Through the integration of volunteers we connect local ideas with ones from abroad. We hope that in joining our team you will bring with you a knowledge base that adds to our team, while having the opportunity to learn something for yourself.

    As an active family living in a remote place, we are looking for help in child care/teacher for our kids starting end of March. If the person is bilingual French/ English it's a plus. Teaching background and experience in home/un schooling method is a great benefit as well as kindergarden instructor.
