VolunteerMatch Ghana is a Ghanaian-led non-profit organization that takes a unique approach to community development, one based on empowerment instead of charity.
As an act of philanthropy, more and more people from all across the world are getting interested in volunteering for the underprivileged ones, and are traveling across the borders to stretch their helping hands.
Volunteering abroad, along with the concept of ‘socially impactful journey’ has evolved much in the 21st Century, and people are extremely keen about focusing on societal development and personal growth, while exploring a new destination. VolunteerMatch Ghana was established in 2003 with the aim of changing the face of volunteer traveling, and in the last 10 years, we have had more than 1023 volunteers who completed their journeys with life changing experiences.
Nicknamed as VMG with a registration number G-28, 293, we provide the best volunteer and intern opportunities to interested candidates from different parts of the world, and we ensure that each of them gets the maximum out of the program they choose.
Currently, VolunteerMatch Ghana operates in 6 regions in Ghana, providing more than 100 volunteering and interning options ranging from Child Care, Teaching, Medical and Healthcare, Community Development and much more. Most of our volunteers are high school students, couples, corporate groups and individuals on their summer break or gap year.
We as an organizations have been working at the grassroot level for years, and successfully contributed towards the development of the concerned people VMG has ensured that the contribution of every volunteer is counted, and there’s sustainable growth. For the internship programs, participants opting for Medical and Healthcare projects get to work with professionals and learn how to deal in emergency situations.
Our internship programs are crafted and designed in a way that every participant gets to know about the medical scenario of the particular country. It is both an inward and outward journey - inward, as you’ll get to learn a lot through first hand experience, and outward, as the society will be benefitted by your contribution. As an organization, we have a cross-cultural set up in all our offices across the regions.
We have people from different cultures and ethnicities working for us in order to make the process of volunteer traveling smoother and more flexible. We have dedicated coordinators at each volunteer placement, We take care of the volunteer’s placement, traveling, accommodation, meals and security.
