Who We Are

Get to know more about our team at Atlas, how we are different and why we do what we do! Please have a read through and see if you think you would be a fit to our team out in Ghana – making a difference, together, one step at a time.

Our mission

After repeated volunteer trips to the Kwahu district, based in the Eastern region of Ghana we fell in love with the place, people and values. We knew that we wanted to do something more and something different to the usual large scale volunteering organisations.. So here we are! We know that not one of us can change the world or people’s lives in one day, but working as a team with the local community, little by little, step by step we aim to improve the livelihoods of the most vulnerable focusing on education, health and renovations to drive development.

Our values

We want to show potential volunteers across the globe that you don’t need to pay thousands when you are coming to help and feel strongly against some large organisations having huge head office running and staffing costs.
