Partner West Africa’s volunteering opportunities are ideally suited to people who have spent time in the work place and have a specific skill-set that can be shared with our staff and partners here in Ghana. We work closely with each volunteer to design a tailor-made placement built around their specific knowledge, expertise and experience allowing them to offer the very best of what they are able to, while addressing the most urgent needs of the community. Consequently, our unique approach attracts a wider age range of volunteers compared to the mainstream volunteering sector, a positive aspect that many volunteers comment on during their placements, as well as the obvious benefits their experience brings to the programmes we run.

Find out about how your unique knowledge and skills can add value to our variety of volunteering programmes here.
