Volunteer service can range from 2 weeks to 3 months. Program fees vary based on the length of the internship assignment.

Interns whilst in the country may wish to apply for extension of the program which will be agreed upon her track record on the assignment project and upon agreement to pay the required extra fee depending on the length of time she intends to extend her stay. A non-refundable deposit of $150 will secure project placement and process. The remainder of the program fee is due a month prior to the volunteer start date

Volunteers will stay with a host family that will be provided by SFLIG volunteers, which is very safe for volunteers to adjust, adapt and know the Ghanaian culture and that of the community volunteers will be volunteering. The selection of a host family will deepen on the information that will be provided on the application form the volunteer submit. These host families are people who have been investigated and have good record and have good health. There are periodic checks to see if they are still up to standard. The accommodation is part of the program fee. Accommodation in hostiles and dormitories can sometimes be organized for group of 6 and upwards working on same or similar project or working at the same
project site. Same sex are put in same room and we make provision for couples and families to have their own room.
Volunteers may or may not share their access to T.V, radio, electricity, kitchen, toilet and bath, clean water.
Host families are responsible for providing breakfast and super everyday. Due to the distance between project area and home lunch can’t be provided but if volunteers are at the accommodation during lunch they will take lunch. The foods served mainly consist of continental dishes comprising rice, chicken, beef, tea, coffee, bread, eggs, soup, potato, oaths, fruits, fish, etc. Local food that is mainly made from the above, tubers, beans and/or maize is served alongside. It is also very common for a volunteer to find a familiar dish in restaurants in different cities.
Interns are provided with well treated water which is purchased from certified producers of hygienically bottled or bagged water
Since it is a learning experience from another culture, intern will be thought and assisted by host family on how to wash with the hands and dry it to ensure that our interns are always kept clean.
Our interns are most likely to find themselves in outskirt places which we most often are our project sites.
At these areas one is likely to find the villagers waking up early to go to farms with their whole family even before their school going children will come and prepare for school. Sometimes water from bole holes and well are what most of the inhabitants uses. People gather around in the evening for storytelling and to discuss other pressing issues. Firewood is sometimes use to cook which is a delight to watch. Our programs are well organized, packaged and very affordable to benefit both host organization and volunteer.
Our volunteers are assured of organizational support and regular check with host family to ensure their safety.
