While GHANA VOLUNTEERS may advise the PARTICIPANT on required travel documentation, GHANA VOLUNTEERS is not responsible for any supporting documents necessary for the PARTICIPANT travel needs or other purposes. PARTICIPANT is responsible for ensuring their travel documents are up to date and valid for travel.

Refund Policy

If a PARTICIPANT decides to cancel a Program, for any reason, the PARTICIPANT

Possible Reasons for Termination once in Host Country

GHANA VOLUNTEERS encourages its PARTICIPANTs to enjoy free time, whether close to their Project site or while travelling. However, the conduct of PARTICIPANTs does reflect on GHANA VOLUNTEERS and its community Programs, even when PARTICIPANTs are not at the Project site or actively engaged with the Program. For this reason certain inappropriate behaviors will not be tolerated and will be evaluated on a case by case basis by the Director and other GHANA VOLUNTEERS administrative staff, as possible reasons for a PARTICIPANT’s expulsion from the Program.

Such behaviors include but are not limited to:

§§Putting at risk one’s own safety or the safety of fellow PARTICIPANTs

§§Jeopardizing GHANA VOLUNTEERSs image or relationship within the community in

which we work

§§Drunkenness which results in inappropriate or disorderly conduct

§§Aggression or violence expressed either verbally or physically

§§Lewd behavior especially of a sexual nature

§§Lateness to Projects or being absent without approval from GHANA VOLUNTEERS

administrative staff

§§Repeated disregard of the Dress Code

§§Breaking the rules set out in the Code of Conduct

§§A PARTICIPANT expelled from their Placement, for whatever reason, will not

receive any reimbursement of fees.

Such circumstances are likely to include: war or threat of war, terrorist activity or threat of such activity, riots or civil strife, industrial action, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, health risks and epidemics, labor dispute, strike, work slow down or work

stoppage and all similar circumstances beyond GHANA VOLUNTEERSs control (collectively “Force Majeure”).

If your Placement is disrupted by an unusual event or circumstances that GHANA VOLUNTEERScould not realistically have foreseen, which significantly affects your Placement, we will try to arrange a suitable alternative Placement as soon as is reasonably possible. This will be at another location where the unusual circumstances are not occurring. You have the right to accept or decline the alternative.

GHANA VOLUNTEERS does not make any refunds in these situations and you will be

responsible for any travel costs incurred. GHANA VOLUNTEERScannot accept liability for the effect of any unusual event or for any loss, damage, expense or claim of any

description you suffer as a result. .
