Testimonials - By Destinations - Ghana

  • General
  • “Volunteering in Ghana is one of the most enjoyable and interesting things I have ever done. It was such an amazing experience which was made by actually living the Ghanaian way of life with a host family. I was able to really ‘see’ their culture, and meet and understand some incredible people, who I hope will be friends for life.”
    Rebecca Lund
  • “I had a wonderful time with the other volunteers – especially travelling. If you wanted to do something there was always something going on.”
    Sarah Craig
  • “We saw so many remarkable sights, waterfalls, three-headed palm trees, caves, botanical gardens… I would definitely go back to Ghana.”
    Ruth Malthouse
  • Care
  • “I would recommend Projects Abroad to others, I think they are a good company. The support and help were vital for me travelling to Africa for the first time. All the staff were really helpful, they supported me throughout my time in Ghana.”
    Alice Groves
  • "Projects Abroad opens your eyes to different cultures and different ways of living."
    Jennifer Field
  • “The most memorable experience was when I went with the children to a party held by a Christian group nearby. We were all put on a small bus and had a really good day. It was great to see them eating lots of ice-cream and playing with toys and generally having fun. At the end of the day they all sang and danced for us which was really sweet and made the whole trip worthwhile.”
    Rhea Walker
  • “I loved my placement, really felt it was worthwhile and made so many small but significant breakthroughs with the children, I felt like I was making a difference.”
    Ruth Bowling
  • “The children I worked with at the orphanage were amazing and it was so hard to leave – I’ll certainly be returning!”
    Emily Baumer
  • “The first time we took the children swimming is something that I’ll never forgot. They were so excited by something that we take for granted in our lives. It was so lovely seeing them do something that they would never usually be able to do. Seeing them smile made me smile.”
    Emily Baumer
  • “This experience has made me appreciate a lot of things that I used to take for granted. I have also realized that I’d like to pursue a career working with kids.”
    Emily Baumer
  • “At my placement in Cape Coast it was rewarding to see a transformation in the children. Two year olds who didn’t know how to play and who had never drawn a picture before turned into bubbly, outgoing kids.”
    Hannah Wilson
  • “The local staff were always available to talk, 24 hours-a-day no matter what the problem or query was.”
    Katherine Schryver
  • “The party we had was a huge success as the children (and teachers!) loved all the games such as musical bumps, and pass the parcel. It was really rewarding to see them enjoy it so much.”
    Katherine Schryver
  • “My most memorable experience was visiting a school at the end of term and teaching within the orphanage that I was attached too. The experience was truly rewarding and valuable for all concerned.”
    Elaine Rogers
  • "Meeting and spending time with the children at the day care centre has been wonderful as the kids are very well mannered and fun to be with. Meeting volunteers from other countries has also been good as it gives different insights to other cultures, languages and ways of life."
    Gary Maguire
  • “My stay in the Good Shepherd orphanage was incredible. Upon arrival I knew that I was well on my way to falling in love with the kids. The way they look out for one another and show such love and happiness is very inspiring. These kids have a tough life, are poorly educated, poorly looked after, yet despite sickness and any other difficulties they may have they still smile, and are undoubtedly the most friendly, kindest people that I have ever met. I remember sitting for hours one night teaching the kids different languages and learning twi from them.”
    Grainne Tuohy
  • “One particularly memorable experience was a visit I made to the Royal Seed Needy Home. As I walked in through the gate I knew there was something special about this place. I cried as I walked around the orphanage and saw the care and commitment that went into running the home as well as the pure love that the kids show. To describe the experience is impossible…. As I write this I realise that the most memorable thing from my trip is the smiles on these kids faces as they see you coming, the smiles on the kids faces in the street as they shout ‘Obruni!’ and run to meet you. It has changed my whole outlook on life.”
    Grainne Tuohy
  • “My first day at New Life Orphanage was wonderful. So many new and beautiful faces welcoming me and wanting to play. I felt so lucky to be part of their family.”
    Maddie Willems

Several individuals have inspired me greatly.”

Curiosity from locals and drivers grew, resulting in an impromptu gig, we played for ages… with ‘Foo Fighters’ and ‘Counting Crows’ and other such rocking songs. We attracted much dancing, laughing and shouting. We even scored a free ride in the tro for our efforts – fantastic!!!”
    David Busey
  • “Teaching was such an invoking and uplifting way of being part of the community.”
    Hugh Goran
  • “There have been many different experiences that I will always remember. The highlight of my trip was the week travelling to the north of Ghana and being so close to an elephant, monkeys and crocodiles. I have also enjoyed meeting so many wonderful friendly people and seeing the school children every day during my placement. It is great to feel part of a project that will help so many people in the future.”
