Our organization experienced tremendous increase in the number of volunteer participants on the construction and renovation project. The project provided the opportunity for international volunteers to work with locals to both learn and share valuable skills.
Review 2016: Ghana - Construction project
The year has been full of excitement for our volunteers who participated in the Construction project especially the engagements of the local community. As part of the project, the people in the various construction sites or communities organized cultural exchange programs for our volunteers.
Volunteers participated in the construction of our new orphanage located at Kasoa near Accra. The new orphanage is expected to accommodate about 50 orphans and needy children from the street. These foundation or the orphanage when completed will provide food, shelter, healthcare, and education to children in need.
At Ho in the Volta Region, volunteers joined a team of local building workers in the construction of the organization’s new Volunteer student hostel.
Volunteers also participated in the renovation and painting of one of our partner schools. The project provided the opportunity for volunteers to experience the different methods of construction in the developed world and Africa as a whole.
Our partner organisation in Ghana gave as a little feedback regarding our projects in Ghana. Within our construction project our volunteers achieved a lot of things in the past year like building a new orphanage. Read more about all the successes they achieved in Ghana.
