I can’t put words to how incredible it was to volunteer in Ghana. I never realised how big of an impact volunteering abroad would have on my life, but now that I’ve done it, I can’t imagine my life without this experience. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to immerse myself into the Ghanaian culture and learn all about the different components of life firsthand. There is something truly beautiful and unique about this country and its people. The local team in Ghana is incredibly helpful and was always available to answer any questions you might have. There was never a time when I didn’t feel safe or well taken care of. Every single aspect of my time spent in Ghana was incredible. I never realised how difficult it would be to leave at the end of my 5 weeks- it was really hard to say goodbye to the people who had become my second family. My biggest piece of advice for anyone thinking about volunteering here is to just do it and to stay as long as you can.

If you’re hesitant about volunteering, that’s ok. Being anxious about going across the world not knowing anyone is normal. But please, don’t let your fear keep you from going. My fear is what pushed me to choose Ghana and it led me to believe that it is the best decision I have ever made. Come with an open heart and an open mind. Be prepared to see things that will strike you, but also that will leave you feeling full of love. The kids changed my life. The surroundings changed my life. So much, that I am already planning my trip back. Having the other volunteers to go through exactly what you go through in your placement is so reassuring. You create a family and you a create a whole new life wherever you decide to go. Whatever age you are, your help is needed. If you feel like want to change the world, even if it is just a little, choosing to volunteer abroad is perfect for you.

Ghana described in one word: happiness. There is happiness everywhere – on the streets, in food, in people’s homes and especially in people’s hearts. If you ever felt down or homesick the happiness inside of them without a doubt made you smile once again. Ghana is the friendliest country I have ever been to and the children, along with the views and volunteers are guaranteed to create some of the best memories in your life. I really do feel that I made a difference which feels amazing!
