Here, you will have the chance to volunteer in a small rural town in Ghana and give back to the needy. In the orphanage, you will be surrounded by twelve adorable children whose aim in life is to demand hugs from you. You will be playing games and teaching songs to the younger orphans, whilst being a role model to the older ones. You will have the freedom to express your teaching skills through many avenues, such as creative play, sensory play and traditional teaching.
