    Outreach

    Ghana is a fantastic place to spend time volunteering abroad with children in orphanages and day care centers. Ghana in West Africa is a country of rich natural resources and ancient traditions. However, an ever-growing disparity between rich and poor has resulted in a large percentage of the population still living in poverty. Poor health and sanitation have contributed to the low life expectancy and high infant mortality rates. Problems such as violent methods of discipline, child labor, and poor education means that childhood in Ghana can be a real struggle, which is why our volunteer Care projects are so important.

    Volunteer care work in Ghana is an ideal way to get involved and help improve the welfare of the children. You can contribute toward this important development work during a gap year or career break, or as a worthwhile way to spend a vacation. Volunteers with qualifications and experience are welcome but you do not need to have either to volunteer. Energy, passion, and commitment to the work at hand are all that you need.

    Volunteers work on achieving the goals set out in the Care Management Plan, including running educational games and group activities, providing emotional support, and helping improve hygiene practices.

      HIV/AIDS Program

      Volunteers in the medical or health field need to have medical training and experience. They will work at a busy Accra hospital in fields such as casualty, maternity, paediatrics, surgery etc. The hospital is a private hospital but the charges for Ghanaians are minimal. It is an extremely busy hospital that accepts patients from around Accra and further afield.

      he HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa is unusual in its scope and magnitude. Health workers in Ghana are under great pressure, given the unprecedented surge in the number of HIV/AIDS patients. A volunteer who elects to take on a placement with HIV/AIDS is taking part in the efforts to mount an effective response in meeting the needs of target communities.

      The HIV/AIDS volunteer in Ghana service includes visits to the remote areas with the purpose of delivering vital supplies of food, medicine, as well as providing basic medical care. HIV/AIDS volunteers help reduce the spread of HIV by raising awareness and promoting access to medical care. They also foster compassion in the community for people living with HIV/AIDS as well as giving emotional support.

      Volunteers in Ghana participate in schemes to educate and counsel the community, schools and individuals. Also as a volunteer in Ghana on this program, you will visit HIV/AIDS clinics and help meet the needs of children orphaned by the disease.

      Volunteers will need to send through proof of qualifications at least 3 weeks prior to starting their volunteering. The local coordinator will then ensure that all paperwork in Ghana is arranged so volunteering can begin straight away.

      Volunteers work alongside the local staff and they will assist with translations. Volunteers need to be ready to think outside of the square as the hospital has limited resources and equipment for example listening to baby’s heart beats is done manually as they do not have a sonogram.

      In addition to volunteering in a hospital, all volunteers will participate in community outreach programs during their stay. The outreach programs include assisting with HIV testing, school and orphanage awareness programs and crisis control which may see volunteers helping with jiggers eradication and community immunization.

      This is a great opportunity for volunteers in the medical field to get experience in different areas of medical care and also to share learning and knowledge with the locally trained staff.

        Volunteer & Intern
        Health Assistance

        Medical programs in Ghana welcome volunteers with a wide range of levels of experience, including qualified medical personnel, medical students and pre-med students. Attendance on a medical volunteer project is itself a helpful preparation for a medical career, and for this reason, provided they are enthusiastic and truly eager to help in the health sector, even individuals without medical experience can be accepted. Medical volunteers get to undertake duties according to their own interests and areas of expertise. Medical students shadow local doctors and nurses, assisting them and learning by observing their work at clinics and hospitals.

        program3

        Due to very basic resources volunteers are encouraged to bring scrubs, theatre shoes, dressings, etc with them and need to be prepared to work in a different way than they may be used to.

        A medical qualification is not an essential requirement but involvement will be based on experience and training. Depending on the placement and the volunteer’s prior skill, duties can include giving basic health care; counseling patients; researching and putting together health documents (e.g. on HIV/AIDS); helping ill and HIV infected patients (with feeding, dressing, teaching, playing games) and organizing educational workshops.

        Volunteers will be placed with a local Doctor and/or Nurse who will guide them in different tasks and activities at the placement. It is important to note that as a volunteer, you will not be allowed to partake in serious procedures and will be job ‘shadowing’. However, depending on the volunteer’s level of experience, they may observe operations, provide assistance in basic procedures and visit patients, before and after surgery.

        Role of Volunteer & Intern

        The work is mostly depending on volunteer’s level of knowledge, experience and skill. Volunteers would be mainly involved in care of patients, replacing bandages, checking blood pressure, first aid treatment, assisting in the delivery of babies, weighing of babies.

          Volunteer Medical Placements

          Medical volunteers get to undertake duties according to their own interests and areas of expertise. Medical students shadow local doctors and nurses, assisting them and learning by observing their work at clinics and hospitals.

          Our Medicine internships in Ghana are based in the Central Region, Eastern Region and  Accra the capital city of Ghana. You will be based in a bustling city hospital working with patients who have a wide range of ailments.

          When you first arrive at the hospital you will discuss your work schedule with your Projects Abroad coordinator and the internship supervisor. Most interns choose to spend time in a variety of departments such as accident and emergency, pediatrics, maternity, pharmacy, physical therapy, and surgery.

          Due to very basic resources volunteers are encouraged to bring scrubs, theatre shoes, dressings, etc with them and need to be prepared to work in a different way than they may be used to. In addition to medical placements in community clinics and hospitals, there are volunteer roles in the field of HIV/Aids awareness and education.

          Most of these placements are in the poor communities in Ghana where health professionals are needed most. GHV organizes placement for volunteers who are interested in working at the childcare and maternity hospital.

          In this project, volunteers are expected to work alongside the local Nurses and Doctors; The work is mostly depending on volunteer’s level of knowledge, experience and skill.

          Through this project, we aim to increase access to basic healthcare for rural people, providing public health services in all aspects of clinical nursing, with a primary health work with the community nurses and promote health education in the villages.

          Country Info

          Welcome to the Land of Sunshine, also reffered to as an ‘Island of Peace’. Ghana is one of the thriving democracies in Africa, inhabited by the world’s friendliest people.

          Ghana, the gateway to Africa is situated right in the heart of West Africa . Its borders extend from the Gulf of Guinea covering a distance of about 672km from the south to the north, and about 540 km from the east to the west.

          The country is bordered to the north by Burkina Faso , the east by Togo, the south by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by Cote d’Ivoire.

          A narrow grassy plain stretches inland from the coast, widening in the east, while the south and west are covered by dense rainforest. To the north are forested hills, beyond which is dry savannah and open woodland. In the far north is a plateau averaging 500m (1600ft) in height. In the east the Akuapim hills run inland from the coast along the Togo border. The Black and White Volta rivers enter Ghana from Burkina Faso , merging into the largest manmade lake in the world, Lake Volta. Ghana ‘s coastline is dotted with sandy palm-fringed beaches and lagoons.
