Group Volunteering

Ghana Medical Volunteers organizes outreaches through out the year for groups of professionals, medical and pre-med students.

Group programs always turn on your heart and offer such a great memorable fun, which is never forgotten. So exciting, so educative so memorable that whatever you learn and encounter, you do not need an extra effort to have it stuck in your memory. Group programs are tailored for any group of persons.

Our tailor made trips are suitable for groups from all areas of society: college students on a summer break, students from a class or university department, , work colleagues or even a group of friends looking for a truly original volunteering experience with an African organization!
