    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Coming to a town like Anfoega is a incredible and a unforgetable experience because you will work with the children and also with our teachers here, you will meet everybody in the town. The advantage of coming to a small town like this one is that we are a warm and welcoming place and everybody is always happy to have new people here. The feedback from the volunteers that we have had in the past is always about how happy they felt thanks to the hospitality and warm hearts of the people.
    As a plus benefit you will have the experience of learning new languages, such as the local ghanaian language of this part of the country called Ewe and of course Englih and French.

    Dear Travellers and volunteers
    We need a lot of help in the school, mainly in education and infrastructure. As you can see in the photos the class rooms does not have walls, so in the rainy season it is very hard for us to make classes. We have a computer lab which only has one computer and we can not do much with that for the 320 students that we have everyday. We would love to start a library for the kids, they speak and write very well english but we dont have any books for them so that they can improve even more . We need mainly school materials to improve their learning experience. We plead with you to come along with any useful teaching and learning material such as books, papers, pencils, counters, poster colours, computers and all others that will help the children learn better to improve on their performance. We want to emphasize that the request for these teaching and learning materials is not a compulsory stipulation for accepting helpers.
    Please dont hesitate to contact us, we are an open school willing to have anyone who is willing to teach, play, work, build and of course help us in anyway. Thank you.
