Welcome to our client testimonials page. We will ensure you have an unmissable opportunity to make a difference as well as seeing the beauty of Ghana whilst having the experience of a lifetime. We believe that we offer the very best volunteering experiences in Ghana but dont take our word for it – client testimonials are what really counts & here are some words from a few of our delighted volunteers:

Akwaaba Volunteers has made my Ghana experience extremely positive, they have helped organise travelling, nights out, weekend activities and every thing to do with my placement.The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for spending time in before and after placement. Open and easy to relax and I felt at home. There are clean beds and bathrooms with good showers and space to live. The food was excellent. I have complex dietary requirements and Jordan and the team catered for all of my needs, designing my own menu to make sure I had fresh, tasty, nutritious food everyday. Akwaaba exceed in catering for everyone and making meal times enjoyable and social. Jordan and Kind gave me so much support and guidance with my placement and made sure I was settling in well and feeling confident in what was expected of me. They continued to support me throughout my time here and I have loved every minute of my placement. I would recommend Akwaaba Volunteers to everyone of all backgrounds, ages and experience, you will leave with so many wonderful memories and unforgettable experiences.

A really brilliant experience in a country full of friendly and positive people! Jordan and King provided an organised and fully enjoyable time, as well as friendship and freedom to explore the country yourself.  I feel I have really explored Ghana and have been given plenty of opportunities to do so. I felt like the free time and volunteer time were balanced perfectly. This has been a brilliant experience. The volunteering projects they run really make a difference and I fully encourage anyone to experience it for themselves.

I honestly don’t think I could have had a better experience as a first time volunteer. I felt very welcome very quickly and I feel at home here. Jordan, King and the team do a wonderful job.

I would highly recommend to anyone looking for volunteer work to go to Akwaaba Volunteers. I really enjoyed my time which I spent with Jordan, Kind and everyone in the volunteer house. I spent my time in Accra helping coach an Academy and the under 13 community team. It was a really eye opening experience which I will always look back on.

I had one of the best experiences of my entire life, an experience that some can only dream of. Not only did I get to see Accra from a local perspective but I was also able to go on fun excursions to the beach, a botanical garden, and the craft market. I did an art placement that enabled me to push my artwork to a new level. The couple that runs Akwaaba Volunteers does a great job of accommodating you with helping you to get the most out of your time in Ghana. The food at the house was really good, thanks to the wonderful cook Evelyn, I was able to try a range of Ghanaian dishes that were extremely delicious. I would definitely recommend volunteering with Akwaaba Volunteers, as it is an experience not to be missed.

I Had the pleasure of staying with Akwaaba Volunteers for a month and I had a wonderful month. Jordan and King will go to any length to make you sure you enjoy your stay. Their positive energy is contagious. Staying in Ghana is great, people are very friendly and the nature is stunning. Staying with Akwaaba Volunteers you get to try the lovely local food and meet many inspiring locals when you work with them in the various placements. I am definitely going to miss Ghana and Akwaaba Volunteers.

I chose Akwaaba volunteers as my first ever volunteer trip abroad and honestly was the best decision I could make. Jordan and King are so great at making the time you spend with them worth while, fun and make every effort to do everything you want to do during your stay. Extra activities are well planned around exactly what volunteers want to do.

We had amazing home cooked food everyday and the volunteer house is nice and open and in a great location close to the airport and beach.

I chose the teaching project and although schools were closed for Easter, Jordan still arranged for daily tutoring and after school classes for me to attend which were great fun.

Akwaaba is a great choice especially to introduce you to Ghana. Cannot wait to go back!
