The Ghana Medical Volunteers (GMV) programme is a Volunteer Partnerships for West Africa (VPWA) project that promotes volunteerism to support health care development within Ghanaian communities. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. VPWA contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism within West Africa, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
GMV is inspired by the conviction that volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges within Africa. Everyone can contribute their time, skills and knowledge through volunteer action and their combined efforts can be a significant force for achieving peace and development.
Volunteering makes important economic and social contributions, contributing to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens. It can be both challenging and rewarding and require you to use your skills in a new context. You can also transfer useful knowledge while gaining a greater understanding of the issues affecting other people.
At the request of communities, regional provinces, districts and municipalities and other partners, GMV mobilizes volunteers to work in assisting health delivery in communities of Ghana through clinics, hospitals and or community outreach programmes
