The country is also known for it’s colourful festivals, bustling markets, rhythmic music and hospitable people. Ghana is also considered one of the safest countries in Africa, with an emerging economy and good infrastructure.

You would be settling into a new eclectic way of life, whilst offering much needed volunteer support to the local projects, by bringing your own personality and ideas.

Where are the volunteer projects in Ghana?


Projects here:

Axim is a coastal town in the western part of South Ghana.

It is an beautiful setting, with it being home to one of the most beautiful beaches in Ghana, which has attracted beach resorts to the area. The surf is also great, which attracts people to it's shores.

There are two ways of getting to Axim from Accra (where your flight will arrive into), either by air or coach. The flight can take about 40 minutes, whereas the coach takes a beautiful scenic drive along Ghana's coast and takes about 6 hours. Whichever you decide, our RGV team in Accra will make sure you depart from the right place and at the right time. On arrival, our team in Axim will be awaiting you!

Accra, Ghana.

Projects here:

Accra is the capital of Ghana and with over 2 million people living here in the city alone, it's the largest in the country.

It's easily reachable from the UK, with direct British Airways flights from London to Accra taking about 5/6 hours.

It is a very safe African city, with the country as a whole being one of the safest countries on the continent.

The national language in Ghana is predominantly English, so in Accra, you'll have no issues conversing with the locals.

The main airport in Accra is Kotoka International Airport and is based extremely close to the city centre, but with RGV, our team will pick you up directly from the airport.
