Volunteering in Ghana

A group of 32 students from the University decided to do a weeks volunteering in Ghana in June 2013. They arranged their trip through Original Volunteers to be able to share their energy and ideas with underprivileged children in communities in the Kwahu region of Eastern Ghana near Lake Volta.

Student achievements

The focus of the group’s visits was the Fulani community next to Lake Volta where the literacy rates are poor and no schooling available until the school built by volunteers had been completed.

The students aged between 18 and 19 completed a wide variety of activities and visits in the short time they were there and made a huge difference to the poorer communities they visited. The group also kindly distributed toys and materials to children in need.
