Our Primate Conservation project need your help....

The West African Primate Conservation Action (WAPCA) mission is to safeguard the future of two Critically Endangered primates - the Roloway monkey and the white-naped mangabey. Part of our work is rescuing and rehabilitating pet trade victims, placing them into social and breeding groups and have, since its conception in 2001, created a genetically diverse captive population of white-naped mangabeys - the largest of its kind!

The current Endangered Primate Breeding Centre was constructed in 2008 and in the ten years since it opened at Accra Zoo in the Achimota Forest. To commemorate this anniversary, we would like to build new homes for some of our longest residents. The decade has worn and torn our original enclosures, and all our animals deserve the same high standard of care.

100% of what you donate will go directly to the construction of the new enclosures so if you would like to donate and help give our monkeys a natural and safe home follow the link!

"One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time!"

Over the past 10 weeks, Catherine Isobel Roy has dedicated her time to working with over 60 horses, 2 camels and a puppy alongside the mounted unit of the Ghana armed forces and Akwaaba Volunteers.

Catty has been working cloesly with Spirit, a very green 3 year old stallion who had no confidence ouside of his stable, would rear at the slightest pressure, buck at every opportunity and was nervous and head shy. 2 months down the line, Spirit is confidently cantering in open spaces, popping over poles, responding to voice commands, is confident with a saddle on and ready to be backed and to make a great horse for someone.

Take a look at what you could get up to when you join our Horse Project in Ghana!

Today we are celebrating the end of term and the end of an era.

The children from the UCC (underprivileged children's centre) have been forced to leave their current location and have been left with no where to go. As you can see from the photo the new school is still a building site and without the school the children are left vulnerable on the streets, forced into child labor or worse.

Thanks to the Akwaaba Volunteers team and our amazing family of supporters we have raised the money to rebuild a temporary structure at the new school site and a toilet block which guarantees the safety and education of over 160 children from Accra who will have a school to return to after Easter!

We had an amazing final day with our netball coaches and the Netball Development Trust - Making A Difference Through Netball team.

Our coaches are now better equipped to coach the next generation of Netballers and help more young people in Ghana get involved with the sport. They are confident, capable, enthusiastic and we can't wait to see them put their skills into action in their schools and teams.

Each coach was presented with a certificate of completion and a new ball for their school as well as wristbands, bibs, new nets and kits.

Day 3 of Netball with Netball Development Trust - Making A Difference Through Netball was action packed!

All 25 coaches brushed up on making coaching fun for their students, the rules of the game and good umpiring as well as discussing some sexual and reproductive health topics in line with the issues that girls in Ghana often face.

Of course we finished with a very competitive match - action photos below!

Kicking Off is an amazing charity currently working in Ghana using the power of football to empower communities.

Yesterday Akwaaba Volunteers traveled to to the village of Mpraeso with a squad of 16 u13 Street To School Soccer Boys to take part in Kicking Off's tournament. We were warmly welcomed, each boy was given a goody bag, a medical check where multivitamins, biscuits and bananas were given out as well as administering malaria checks to each boy and our coaches, we were supplied with water, a meal and a great game of football against Mpraeso's academy team. It was an unfortunate result for the Street To School Boys but the academy scored some fantastic goals and deserved the win.

Not only did our team have a great day but 500 girls and boys from local schools were invited to compete in a fantastic tournament!

Thankyou for inviting us to represent Accra, welcoming us and our boys so warmly, a great tournament and some even better football!

Over the weekend we travelled to Kumasi, Ghana's second biggest city for a weekend of culture!

We were honoured to attend the wedding of local artist and designer Eric and his beautiful wife Mercia and enjoy a traditional ceremony full of love and dancing! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Taylor!

We also visited the Manhiya Palace, home to the Asante King, Otomfuo Nana Osei Tutu II. The Asante region is the largest and most powerful region in Ghana, home to Ghana's gold, the origin of Kente fabric and the twi language.

We were particularly inspired by Yaa Asantewaa, a woman who fought like a man. One of the most influential women in Ghanaian history, chosen by the Kings to lead the battle against the British who vowed to fight till the last person falls on the battlefield. She protected her kingdom and the golden stool when the men were too afraid to stand up and fight.

Thinking of volunteering? Here is why you should book today!

So you have thought about travelling abroad and have the intention of doing something good to contribute to the worldwide effort aiming to make the world a better place. People all over the world from gap year students to retired personnel are embarking on adventures around the world volunteering on various projects to help others in need. But why are so many people choosing to volunteer?

First and foremost it feels great to give back, experience a new culture and build your CV whilst doing so. Your confidence will grow, as will your social network and you may even get the opportunity to learn a new language. You will become independent, become a responsible and conscious traveller, you'll become great at budgeting, try new food, become more grateful and share your knowledge and skills to those less fortunate than yourself and you'll make friends for life!

Sound good? Send us an email to start your volunteering journey!

The 2017 World Malaria Report shows that there has been a plateau in the impact of malaria treatment in Ghana and across Africa. With only 54% of people using bednets - this means almost half of people who should be sleeping under the nets are not doing so!

With Christmas fast approaching you can get in the spirit of giving.

When you buy a beautiful handcrafted (in Ghana) bracelet from www.no2malaria.com we will give a treated mosquito net to a family in need in our community.
