Enjoy creating lasting impact working with children in Ghana. Basic education in Ghana consists of Primary and Junior High School. Children in Primary school are between the ages of 6 -11 years old and 12- 15 years for Junior High School. Children at this level acquire basic literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving skills as well as skills for creativity and healthy living.

Depending on the interest, skills, and qualifications of the volunteer, they will be assigned to a class as a teaching assistant with supervision and guidance from permanent staff. Participants will live with host families and work in the communities where they are placed.


The team at AFS Ghana are looking forward to discussing the programmes with you and can be called or Whatsapp’d on +233 540101670 between 10am and 2pm.
