My name is Pat. I'm from Holland and I'm running a small-scaled community based guesthouse in the Ashanti region in Ghana. The guesthouse is not just a guesthouse, we are linked to several projects in town.
We are doing ok at the moment but we would like to take our bookings to the next level. And that's where you come in! Do you have experience or are you schooled in marketing, advertisement, social media etc and do you think that you can put us on the map once and for all?? Then please come and join our team!
If you are none of the above, but you would like to help me out with my kids...... That's also a possibility. Lucy and Tetey are 3 and 4. Very bright kids, but they can be a handfull. They are being raised multilingual( English, Dutch and a local language). They are going to school. So your working hours will be after school, from 2 pm going.
For both positions goes that you'll get a room in the guest house and 3 meals a day. We are a welcoming team and family. We like to work hard but also have fun.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
The village where we live is a typical Ghanaian village with very friendly people who are very welcoming to guests. We are a mixed family, so also from us you will learn a lot about the culture in Ghana.
As stated above I could really use your help raising the occupancy rate. As a guesthouse we are doing ok, but we would like to be doing great. We get a lot of happy guests and good reviews.... but some regularity in the bookings would be nice.
So if you think you can help with that.... Send me a message!
You'll have a room at the guesthouse and will get 3 meals a day.
In your free time you can do a lot of sight seeing in the area, lake side, some national parks, Kumasi with the biggest market of West Africa, the mountains and our area is great for hiking. The rest of Ghana you can explore during the weekends.
Some of the sight seeing you can also do with us,when we have some free time.
In our direct area there's a big possibility that you'll meet fellow travellers and volunteers.
