Ispent a short three weeks in Ghana through the PREVOG organization. Everyone I met was welcoming and kindly offered help adjusting to the new culture. I stayed with a host family along with a few other people in the program. Living with a host family allowed me to be completely immersed in Ghanaian culture. During the week I interned at an eye clinic where I assisted the doctors with patients and was even able to observe cataract surgery. On the weekends I had the opportunity to travel with other people in the program. Seeing the Cape Coast Castle and Kakum National Park were two highlights of my trip. Overall, visiting Ghana was an unforgettable experience.

Nick's Experience in a Blog.

I’m Nick Leeson, an international legal intern from Canada and I’m staying in West Africa for 4 months (17 weeks). As I write this, I’m 3 months into my volunteer work here and, looking back on the time that I have already spent in Ghana and Togo, it is unbelievable how much I’ve experienced:
I will never forget my first trip to a Ghanaian hospital; the smiles on the faces of the children at the orphanage each time I come to visit;.... Continue at his blog.

Time does fly when you're enjoying yourself. I guess I'll start at the beginning. The plane ride here was
as expected: long. My butt literally hurt! But oh well. At least there's no major time difference between Sweden and Ghana so I haven't had to deal with jet lag. In fact, since Swedish time is 2 hours ahead of the Ghana, I have no problems waking up around 5 am instead of 7 am like I do back home.

I came to Ghana on July 1, 2011 and spent six weeks with PREVOG organization, working at the New Life Orphanage International in Nungua, Accra (orphanage and teaching placement).
The organization
PREVOG is the perfect volunteer organization to go for, especially in case it’s your first time to Africa. The program directors are very welcoming, support was always available, well-organized and very personal, advice (concerning work, transports, trips etc.) was always reliable and helpful. Plus, the program fee is low in comparison to international volunteer organizations. For a volunteer stay in Ghana, I would always recommend PREVOG as the organization who accompanies you best during this unique experience!
The host family
My host family was an extended Ghanaian family living together in one compound (several houses on a fenced area) and hosting several volunteers at a time. The whole family was very welcoming and lovely and always had an ear for our questions etc. Room and facilities were very good and the food just great. Great hosts and a good atmosphere that made me feel at home.

The volunteer placement
I spent the six weeks in Ghana working at the New Life Orphanage International in Nungua, Accra. I worked as a teacher for the younger classes in the orphanage’s school and spent a lot of time with the children (about 50 children from 2 years to 17 years old) at the orphanage during their free time, with sports, reading, creative arts etc. All the people I worked with were very friendly and really committed, the kids are all lovely and very smart. Working with them was a really unique experience for me, interesting and a lot of fun, I enjoyed every single day.
Travelling and going out…
Although Accra is definitely a great place to stay – very busy, interesting historical sites, shops, bars, markets, nightlife…etc. I spent several week-ends travelling and so got the chance to see a lot of interesting places and different parts of Ghana. Ghana is a great country to travel, with beautiful landscape, lots of sights and towns to visit throughout the whole country. Travelling was easy to organize and hassle-free, I met a lot of people (Ghanaians are very, very friendly and always willing to help a lost "obruni" (white person) and it made my Ghanaian experience unforgettable.Ghana is a welcoming and interesting country, I had an amazing and really unforgettable time living and working there, and first of all thanks to PREVOG.
