You want to volunteer and make a difference in Africa, but the idea of planning a trip there might have you concerned about safety. Where should you stay, what should you eat, and will you feel lost or overwhelmed?
Teaming up with Boundless Loves puts all these concerns to rest, as we have years of experience planning volunteer trips in Africa and we will take care of every detail for you. We will arrange safe, secure, and comfortable housing, provide you with three healthy meals a day of local cuisine, and offer you guidance and support from our in-country staff throughout your entire trip.
In Ghana, we offer accommodation with host families, providing a “home away from home” for you. Staying with the host families you will share a room with other volunteers of the same gender, andeach house has multiple rooms with comfortable beds, electricity, electric fans, western style toilets and comfortable living arrangements.Our host families have significant experience working with and hosting international volunteers and thus understand your needs and always do everything they can to make your stay comfortable.
This is a perfect opportunity for you to live safely and comfortably with host families allowing you to be immersed in the local culture and explore Ghana. Most of our volunteer projects in Ghanaare located within 1-20 KM of our host families, so you may walk or ride a tro-tro, or takea local taxi to your project.
Your host family will offer you 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner). The breakfast consists of eggs, toast, coffee, tea, pancakes etc.While lunch and dinner will be made up of local cuisine like Jollof rice, Banku and tilapia, Fufu and vegetable soup, fries, salad etc.
You are probably wondering if you will have enough free time during your trip to travel and explore the unique and beautiful country of Ghana. Luckily, you will only be working at your project for an average of 4 to 6 hours per day, and only Monday to Friday. This will leave plenty of free time to take advantage of this exciting destination!
Ghana volunteers are in luck as their host country is unique and has a lot to offer. You can get your wildlife fix at Mole National Park,where you’ll glimpse the iconic animals which have made Africa famous. You’ll see 90 species of mammals that make their home there, including elephants, hippos, cheetahs, baboons, and antelope. Kakum National Park boasts a suspension bridge canopy walk, and Wli Waterfall offers great hiking with spectacular views. For water lovers, you will find a number of unspoiled beaches and world-class surfing.
Ghana is steeped in history, its impressive buildings a testament to a sad and tragic heritage tied to the brutal slave trade andarchitecture buffs will have their fill of a variety of structures. Be sure to visit Cape Coast Castle, an impressive white-washed seaside fort where you can learn about the poor slaves who were held there and then carried away from their homes on great ships.
Volunteers in Ghana will also have the chance to explore a vibrant colorful culture. Bustling markets like Kajetia with its 11,000 stalls, are a great place to meet locals and pick up a variety of goods such as the renowned and beautiful wax print Khente cloth fabrics. Ghana also offers delicious cuisine, and a wealth of restaurants, bars and grills to taste the local fare and experience a little nightlife while you are out and about.
Safety and Field Support
Our number #1 priority is the safety of our volunteers. Boundless Love is a leading volunteer organization serving thousands of volunteers. We pride ourselves on providing the safest, highest quality, and most professional programs to our volunteers since 2013. Our dedicated team works closely from start to finish with each volunteer (and parents/guardians) to ensure a successful, satisfactory, and safe volunteering experience.
Below is a list of our safety and field support features that will demonstrate the level of support and safety each of you will receive while volunteering abroad.
1. Country Coordinator and Field Staff :
In each country, where we operate, we have a very strong and dedicated team of country coordinators and local staff members to support and take care of you. All of our country coordinators and field staff are highly experienced and responsible individuals. They have been running volunteer abroad program for many years. They have served thousands of volunteers, so they understand your needs and know how to run safe, rewarding, and meaningful volunteer abroad program for you.
Our In-country staff is responsible for a number of things. Below are some of the main services that they will provide:
- Airport pick-up and transfer to host family or work site
- Management of room and food in host family
- Orientation of local country, culture, host family, safety, and related issues
- Introduction to your host family and project staff
- Periodic follow up visits or calls (1-2 week intervals) to ensure everything is going smoothly
- Advice for solving any issues, problems, or concerns
2. Airport Greeting
We are dedicated to keeping you save and comfortable from your point of your arrival until your point of departure. We will always receive our volunteers at the airport and transfer them safely. Depending upon the country in which you choose to volunteer, our coordinator, local staff, or a professional transfer company employee will greet you at the airport.
3. Orientation and safety discussion
Regardless of where you join the Boundless Love volunteer program, our program starts with an in depth discussion on safety, history, cultural people, religion, life, and do’s and don’ts. Depending upon the country, these orientation programs range from a few hours to three days. During orientation, we explain the different aspect of safety and general guidelines to help keep yourself safe while volunteering abroad.
4. Safe Host Family and Accommodation
While volunteering abroad, the majority of the time you will reside with a local host family, hostel, or similar accommodation. We always carefully select the host families and other forms of accommodations to make sure that you will be safe and comfortable. In all destinations, we have selected host families who are socially respected and responsible. Most of our host families have hosted international volunteers before, so they completely understand your needs. Your host family will always take care of you and keep you safe.
Similarly, all of our volunteer houses and hostels are located in very safe locations. These hostels are always guarded by security guards or supervised by the local staff very frequently to make sure that you are safe and secure. Also you will be staying with other volunteers from all over the world. You will never be alone.
5. Placement with Other Volunteers
Boundless Love is happy to place you with other volunteers (depending on availability) if this is something that would make you feel safer.
Any international travel requires caution and awareness; volunteering abroad is no exception. We suggest that all volunteers consult their own government advisory office before making the decision to participate in any overseas volunteering opportunities. International travel presents risks, especially with the modern day threat of international terrorism.
The U.S. State Department issues travel warnings and advisories in many countries for American travelers. These travel advisories and warnings frequently change, as situations in each country transform.
It is also wise to consult the Center for Disease Control for health related information and issues that might come up during your time volunteering abroad. Check out www.cdc.gov for possible health risks. One must also keep in mind that the sanitary conditions in developing countries are likely very different from those in your home country. It is also strongly advised that you do not drink the tap water and do not eat food from street vendors.
