Please read this important information before you begin your application to volunteer:
  • Due to the amount of time it takes to prepare for a volunteering placement responsibly, we recommend that you complete your online application at least six weeks before you intend to arrive with us.
  • If you will be travelling to/from Ghana by air, you can select estimated arrival and departure dates during your application which you can then alter/confirm with us after your application has been approved. You should not book your flights until your application has been 'Approved in Principle' by our team.
  • During your application, you will be asked to upload a current CV and to share information about your health, diet, passport number, and motivations for volunteering. This is so PWA can asses your suitability to join our team and undertake the work in question. Please ensure you have this file ready in PDF format before you begin.
  • During your application, you will also be asked to read and agree to the Terms and Conditions set out by PWA. Please read these carefully and in-full BEFORE you submit/make your reservation payment for your application.
  • If your application is 'Approved in Principle' by PWA, you will then need to provide a basic criminal background clearance certificate; a comprehensive travel insurance certificate; and a Yellow Fever immunisation certificate, BEFORE your application can be 'Approved in Full'. Do not complete an application if you will not be able to provide any of these documents at a later stage.
  • In order to submit the below application to volunteer with PWA you will need to pay a Reservation Fee of a minimum of £100 via debit or credit card - DO NOT APPLY OR COMPLETE THE BELOW APPLICATION  FORM UNLESS YOU ARE READY & ABLE TO PAY THIS FEE!. This fee secures your volunteer placement and accommodation booking and is non-refundable. For further information regarding the fees and costs associated with PWA volunteering placements, please view our Pricing Structure Guide.
  • You cannot save or return to PWA's Online Volunteer Application once you have sarted it: you must therefore ensure that you will be able to complete the application in full. The application takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and will require that you have your passport details and contact details available, and that you are able to describe your skills & motivations to join our team.
