During your stay in Ghana you will be living at our volunteer hostel. We are based 10 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes drive from the city centre. All placements are located in and around this area and the transport links are well established. Local amenities such as convenience stores, pharmacies and forex bureau’s are all within close proximity to the hostel.
Our house is based in Osu, a pleasant suburb of Accra and we aim to create a lively, vibrant environment to make you feel at home. We have large social area where you can put your feet up and relax both indoors and outdoors, a dining room for you to enjoy our freshly cooked food and large single sex bedrooms where you can crash after a busy day.
Our number 1 priority is to make sure that you feel safe and at home during your stay here. Ghana is known as one of the world’s friendliest countries and you will soon see why. The house is located in a very quiet neighbourhood with a large gated compound. As well as this our friendly and experienced staff will be around to help you with anything and everything that you need. There is also a security man at the Hostel 24/7.
During your stay in Ghana we will be providing you with 2 meals a day. Breakfast will be basic but nutritious and dinner will be prepared for you by our talented cook who will prepare amazing local dishes for you. If you have any special dietary requirement we will do our best to accommodate you. Our dining area is a great place to reconvene after a busy day, share stories and experiences and plan how to make the most of your time here. Each day you will have the opportunity to buy local dishes for lunch or make your own food in the kitchen.
We have a number of large single sex bedrooms for our volunteers with comfortable beds, ceiling fans and air conditioning to keep you cool throughout the day and night.
We have a mixture of experienced British and Ghanaian staff to take care of our volunteers. With years of experience our staff create an optional activities programme for the volunteers to take part in, including cultural experiences (cooking lessons, local language lessons), visits into Accra and to see the local area (including museums, markets and the beach) as well as travelling opportunities during the weekends to visit slave castles, mountains, waterfalls, animals and more!
