    We welcome on board whoever is interested to work in our health programs,our schools and sustainable livelihood projects.

    OUR COMMUNITIES:
    Our communities are described as rural with the idea that as a volunteer,you will not expect too much luxury. Life is simple,good and clean environment,hospital is available with flowing water, and electrify.
    We worked with other organisation which have not but the volunteers have to move from their accommodation area to those places daily.
    Approximately about 20 minutes.
    Greetings is a great part of our community therefore as a volunteer, you need to be aware and don't be bored about it.

    Other projects we run:
    We run 4 community schools in rural parts.

    We run a permaculture centre and camps

    We promote health through mobile clinic and outreach program.

    We address sanitation issues and girl child matters.

    We address women reproductive health and empowerment issues.

    Summer 2020 agenda
    A. Community library construction
    As a result of covid19,we cancel all our groups summer camps and want to take this opportunity to build few innovative libraries in rural parts in Ghana.
    Our innovative library is about renovating old and already existing rooms,furnishing it and storing books for children to read and learn.
    It actually doesn't cost much as building new libraries.
    This project will need volunteers to pain,help builders renovate and design walls and help arrange library books in the library.
    Its fun for groups and individual volunteers who want to make impact by helping African kids learn.
