VolunteerMatch Ghana Program Reviews
Teresa Amodeo (Italy)Piacenza
VolunteerMatchGhana is An association in which you are protected and followed. You are never left to yourself. An association of very responsible and scrupulous people. If you want to work you can do a lot. If you want to get involved beyond what is required by your field of work, you can do a lot and you're always supported in your initiatives. I had just gone to teach but at the end of the month I completely overturning the school with the help of my friends from Italy. I raised funds and completely renewed it, painted and equipped with bathrooms with running water. The association helped me very much in this adventure. The gratitude of Ghanaian people is immeasurable and the joy they give you is infinite. It was a wonderful experience.

As a way of a treat my daughter spent five weeks in Accra Ghana under the care and guidance of Prince and his family. Throughout her time she was able to get to know how important education is by delivering lessons in a local Primary school. In the evenings she was able to relax and spend many evenings watching the sun setting whilst sitting on a local beach. Prince Ec-lumor arranged various trips as well as a escort to get my daughter from and to school which was very reassuring as during her stay she was.
Staying at VolunteerMatch Ghana was a nice experience, living in a safe house with friendly people who look out for you. During my 10 weeks internship in Ghana, VolunteerMatch showed me many places like beaches, bars and foodstands and were willing to do anything to make me feel at home. They make sure you know your way around, from home to your internship workplace. Working for HRAC helped me understand the Human Rights issues in Ghana, and taught me a lot about working within a powerful company. I worked on reports, wrote papers, went to .

I volunteered at a school in Ghana called Vivibon school. Being in a wheelchair, I was worried how I would manage and how people would react to me. The staff of VolunteerMatch Ghana were really helpful and the children loved pushing me in my wheel chair. I stayed with a host family

I enjoyed my working very much and it made me rich on experience as the children were very happy about my efforts. Yes the children were very happy about my efforts.

On thinking as to how I could sum up my Ghana experience best, I'm simply lost for words. Since I've been back of course there has been the inevitable questions asked of 'how was it?', 'what was your favourite bit?' or 'what did you enjoy the most?' The volunteer house was awesome. Ultimately I feel that whatever reply I manage to respond with, just doesn't come close to doing it justice. All I can say is: travel, volunteer and visit Ghana! Sounds cliché, but you'll love every minute of it especially with VolunteerMatch Ghana.

The best thing was knowing another culture and living one month there to see it well. Also I've loved met new people, volunteers and local people.

It is a worthwhile experience doing something like this, and if you come with an open mind and positive attitude it’ll be some of the best money you’ll ever spend. Whiles in Ghana, I was a volunteer coach with a football team in Ghana called Danbort FC. I assisted in coaching and also helped trained the players during training sessions. Volunteer now and you will not regret.

Volunteering in Ghana with VolunteerMatch Ghana is one of the most enjoying and interesting thing I have ever done. It was such an amazing experience which was made by actually living the Ghanaian way of life with VoluntwerMatch Ghana volunteer house. I was able to really ‘see’ their culture, meet and understand some incredibly wonderful people, who I hope will be friends for life.
