Volunteers with Point Hope Ghana

Volunteers from all over the world come to work with Point Hope Ghana. They work hard all week in our different projects and programs, but also experience the opportunity to explore many of the various Regions (Ghana is composed of 10 Regions) on the weekends.  Sometimes volunteers will travel to different projects Point Hope has in different regions and this provides an even better opportunity for them to also see and experience the different climates, cultures, flora and fauna, tourist attractions, and just the overall beauty of this West African country.
