Determined young people who are desirous of inspiring communities to reach out to positive change are always rare to find.
Certainly such rare young people are volunteers who have left the comfort and luxury back home in Europe but have opted to do voluntary activities in rural areas of Ghana. These volunteers are placed in some basic schools to teach, orphanages to provide child care and engage in rural communities’ activities.
The specific topics covered were, Ghanaian cultures, Health & Safety Tips, Shopping & Transportation in Ghana, Crimes & Taboos in Ghana, Recreational & Tourist sites. Others were Project and Work Ethics, Host Family Stay, Visa issues among others.
The volunteers expressed deep satisfaction after the orientation seminar and they remarked that, they were NOW ready to stay in Ghana for the next twelve (12) months.
IGI indeed welcomes these courageous volunteers who have decided to be part of inspiring deprived communities to reach out to a change which gives oxygen to sustainable development.
