As Ghana Medical Volunteers, you will have to adapt to conditions that may be dramatically different than you have ever experienced and modify lifestyle practices that you now take for granted. Even the most basic practices— talking, eating, using the bathroom, and sleeping — may take significantly different forms in the context of Ghana. If you successfully adapt and integrate, you will in return be rewarded with a deep understanding of a new culture, the establishment of new and potentially lifelong relationships, and a profound sense of humanity.

Health and Safety

Ghana is one of the safest countries in Africa. In the Global Peace Index it is ranked above both the United Kingdom and the US. It is the perfect introduction for first time volunteers to Africa. It has a democratic electoral process and a stable economy. VPWA team shall ensure your health and safety at all times and you'll have emergency support 24/7.

Pokuase, Achimota all in Accra are where some volunteers live for their program. Others who prefer more rural life live in Darmang and Amanase all in Eastern Region of Ghana. All residences are in highly safe neighborhoods. 
Getting to Workplace:(Individual Volunteers & Interns)

Ghana Medical Volunteer placements are mostly within the Greater Accra Region,Eastern Region, Ashanti and Volta Region of Ghana. If your chosen program  is in Greater Accra  and Eastern Region, you shall be living in a house that also host VPWA Head office in Pokuase in Greater Accra of Ghana. Volunteers will have to commute by public bus to and from work place Monday-Friday.
