  • Description

    Description

    We are a medium sized ecolodge situated on an isolated beach in Western Ghana. 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 integrated into traditional and innovative methods. Our location 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.

    Volunteer Opportunities at the Center of the Earth

    As the closest eco lodge to the center of the earth (4°N,2°W) we can offer volunteers 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.

    Your Role:

    As a volunteer, we see you as a member of the team. Whether you are teaching yoga, sailing, helping in the farm, building, or helping with our team or guests, you can expect to be having an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. We welcome people to apply with projects in mind as well as those looking to come work in a variety of roles. In return for your commitment we offer room in one of our naturally built buildings and meals from our exceptional kitchen. Beyond these basics, you will have access to all the opportunities that our guests do. Whether you spend your extra time surfing, hiking, swimming, exploring, dancing, or cycling is up to you.

    The Opportunity:

    - At this time we are specifically looking for yoga instructors from February - December 2019. We are looking for instructors to join us for a minimum of one month and are open to extending. Please include the dates you are available to join us along with any questions you may have about our lodge and the position. Many thanks!
