As an intern or volunteer you can complete research projects, design programs, write advisory reports, create workshops, manuals, teaching & learning materials, implement all kind of activities and assist local staff members in the field. We give interns and volunteers the opportunity to make a change by offering challenging need based projects in a safe environment, because local organisations do not have the resources to do this.
Let’s Go Africa’s unique working method:
Challenge yourself by temporarily leaving your comfort zone
Make a difference by giving practical, academic and/or financial support
Work together for a better future
Doing volunteer work in a development country was an unforgettable experience for me. I am really happy to be a part of it. After 4 weeks you have a better idea how it is like to live there. Now I don't take the things we have so easily for granted anymore. Everything was very well organised by Let's Go Africa. I learned alot from the Ghanian people and also to travel alone and being confident things will turn out fine. I will always remember the children at the school where we worked. It was a great experience doing and sharing all this with my friend. Actually everything in Ghana was very special to me.
We are having a wonderful time here and we would have love to stay longer because there is still so much to do. However, our work duty back home calls again unfortunately. We are working on a short course on types of food and together we developed a list of costs for extra food supply after consulting the cook and housemother. Besides that we did several administrative tasks. We really like doing things and take initiative, which makes the project manager happy. It is great to do all kinds handcrafting and games with the little kids and even see that the bigger boys like to join in the fun. We discussed with project manager regarding the project donation, so we decided to spend part of the money on electricity in the new office and spend the rest of it on the children in the home.
It was a very special experience. The Ghanaian people were very nice and wanted to help with everything. The preparation was good and it was all well arranged. I think the school is a very nice initiative for children who otherwise cannot go to school. This way they can still learn something and they do not walk on the streets all day. I will never forget that things can be different and that we should be happy with what we have here. The supervision on the project was very good. If we wanted to go somewhere, everything was arranged for us. This way we were able to discover all the beautiful places in Ghana.
