Orphanage Volunteering in Ghana

Volunteering at an orphanage in Ghana is such a rewarding experience, for both you and the children. A typical week involves teaching English (basic reading/writing), basic math, playing games, arts and crafts, helping with homework, playing sports, taking the children on a day-trips, and sometimes getting the children dressed in the morning and helping them with meals.
