It starts with the will to make a difference. One of our main causes here at LoszuGhana Children’s Village is voluntary helping those who need it most, an issue that touches many lives around the world.
By gradual integration, volunteers become part of the community and are able to best carry out their work by breaking the cultural barriers when they accept, reason and decide with the local people in their communities. Work with communities and bring your own energy to focus on different issues together. Join any of our projects today and let’s work as a team for the greater good. Join a grassroots project and help us build mini projects right from beginning!
We offer orphanage projects both in villages and cities. Based on your preferences your tasks at the project include caring for kids and assisting them with activities such as shower, dinning etc. Self-planned activities are also welcomed!
We offer a wider range of school projects, both in cities and small villages. Volunteers may work with different classes and ages of children to select their own most preferred classes to work with.
For medical students, we offer placement in a teaching hospital and small clinics in rural communities. Volunteers are required to assist from basic to complex medical tasks using local techniques under the supervision of a senior medical assistant.
Research & Internship
Projects include working with certain groups in communities or institutions, e.g. vocational training for teenage mothers, bullying in schools, etc. Projects are organised together with participants to assist in choosing the right topics.
Community campaigns and educational programs are mostly on social issues and dieseases. Volunteers plan and design materials and carry out tasks with help from a contact person within the targeted communities.
Our rehabilitation center project houses people with various forms of physical or cognitive impairment. Students in the centre are involved in vocational and craft work, a means of developing and equipping users of the centre to gain the necessary skills to live their lives with limited dependencies.
Volunteering comes at a cost, and the process of preparing, training, transporting and housing volunteers is not cheap. This is why we charge a fee for volunteering. We want to be as open as possible about how your fees are spent:

- Administrative expenses in Ghana including office rent and other costs
