Teach English Abroad (Ghana)

Like in any other developing country in the world, there is a need for English education in Ghana and many children and families simply cannot afford to pay foreign English teachers. Teaching English to underprivileged children in Ghana is a wonderful way of giving them the opportunity to make something out of their lives. These children are mostly well behaved and extremely eager to learn from an international volunteer.

Our volunteers will have the opportunity to help children between the ages of 5 to 16 years old. These students are very serious in their quest for learning vital English language skills.

Most volunteers will experience a true Ghanaian welcome from the children of Ghana, surrounded by the natural beauty of this wonderful country, and truly integrate themselves into a friendly and hospitable culture. You will also receive warm appreciation of the effort you have put it.
