Through providing education, love, care and attention to orphaned children in Ghana, the Orphanage Work project aims to address the problems that children left without parents face. Volunteers on this project are placed in both rural and urban communities, where they teach and provide care and affection to orphaned children. Volunteers are responsible for designing and implementing effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the talent and abilities of the children.
Volunteers are welcome to bring along books, pencils, basic first aid supplies and musical instruments to help entertain the children and assist with activities. These supplies can generally be purchased in country, if packing space is limited (YPBGH encourages the purchase of supplies in Ghana to support the Ghanaian economy, rather than buying the goods pre-departure).
