Volunteering in Ghana - The past couple months I spent in Kumasi, Ghana were full of some of the most incredible experiences I’ve had in life thus far. At the end of May when I boarded a flight to Ghana I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into. I was ready for adventure and prepared to work hard to have a positive impact on the community that became my temporary home. For two months I spent my days teaching, playing, and falling in love with the kids at Cherubs Orphanage and Educational Center.

Experiences of a foreign volunteer in Ghana 

Hospitality
Africans are known of their hospitality and Ghanaians make no exception to this. Hospitality is the first thing you notice, when you arrive to Ghana. It can be noticed everywhere, especially when you are visiting somebody's home.

Ghana is a very special place! The people are generous, hospitable, open-hearted, and helpful. It's been called the "Gateway to Africa" and I really think that is really true. I had never travelled to any African country before, but now I definitely have the desire to go back to Ghana and also visit other countries, too. Working with the children at the school and the orphanage was a very wonderful experience.

I participated in the medical volunteer program in Ghana, where I volunteered at Asokwa Children’s hospital. They rotated me around the different departments of the hospital: emergency ward, taking vitals, pharmacy, and lab, so I got to experience a little bit of everything. It was definitely a great learning experience, and I honestly feel like I got more out of it than I was able to contribute.

Ghana, all in all, is an amazing country. Loads of friendly faces always smiling, and the people behind those smiles are always wanting to help. The city of Kumasi, with a population close to 2 million, is something I like to refer to as a city that never sleeps. It's a busy place filled with trotro's and taxis, that takes the idea of traffic to a whole new level.
