Low Cost, Meaningful Volunteer Placements in Ghana

WELCOME TO ATLAS VOLUNTEERS GHANA

get in touch with us

We are a volunteer group based in the semi rural area of Kwahu, Ghana. After years of volunteering and working for other volunteer organisations we decided that we wanted to setup a group with a difference, to reduce the cost burden and open it up to helpers across the globe with low cost and meaningful volunteering.
We offer placements in Education, Renovation, Welfare and Sports primarily. Our aim is to offer meaningful placements which have a direct impact whilst working directly with the local community.
It should be clear to any potential volunteers that we’re not here to try change the world in a day or one trip, but if you are willing to help us on our journey, one step at a time to bring development to the area we fell in love with, then please do have a look at our placements and we look forward to you joining the volunteer team out in Ghana!

Where will i be staying?

Accommodation to our volunters is provided in two shared houses based in a huge gated garden compound overlooking the rainforest with it’s own pond! Bedooms are split between a single sex and there is a shared living room and kitchen with the essentials. It’s the perfect place out of town to relax at weekends and evenings with some breath taking views.

Why choose ghana?

Often referred to as Africa for beginners, it’s easy to see why. Ghana offers a vibrant culture, friendly people and amazing sightseeing opportunities. We are based around Abetifi which is a semi rural district a few hours drive from Accra. It offers the perfect balance for our volunteers by prodividing a safe and friendly environment, large local towns for easy shopping, banking and free time activities whilst also offering an easy platform to reach the remote villages for placements which are just a short journey away along tracks out into the bush!

what can i do in my free time?

For most placements with us, you will be assigned to your placement site between approximately 8am – 3pm each weekday. Your afternoons and weekends are free to spend as you wish. Depending on your interests, you will get out what you put in for this aspect. There are local attractions to visit as day trips, amazing opportunities for weekends away and if you wish to get more involved that your set volunteering hours, we can always arrange out of school clubs, sports or library support.

WHEN CAN I JOIN?

We offer placements throughout the year however please bare in mind that for education placements during school holidays we will arrange vacation classes where volunteers are independently responsible for the school and will require a more hands on and adaptable approach.

Our placements are for a two month minimum duration. This is to ensure that both the children and volunteers have enough time to adjust and adapt to each other to ensure the highest level of impact we can achieve.
