Choosing ethical volunteering in Ghana, West Africa

A Not So Helping Hand

Date Posted: 20/10/2017

A great read about considerations when thinking about international volunteering.

Another great read about considerations when thinking about international volunteering. One of the points the article makes is around the impact volunteers expect to make and how quickly change can occur. We at PWA know that someone volunteering for a few weeks isn’t going to save the world in that time, however our knowledge-sharing volunteering model means that our volunteers, who are carefully selected based on their skills and experience, can become part of our team and help us work towards shared longer-term goals based on the needs identified by the communities we work with.

We invite volunteers with a variety of skills and experience to add value to the programmes we offer. This enables us to provide ethical, sustainable, community-centred volunteering where each volunteer leaves a footprint of knowledge behind that builds and expands the capacity of the staff, children, parents and communities we work with as a whole.
