Building Project in Accra, Ghana

Assist locals with much needed construction, repairs and renovations. Get your hands dirty and engage with the community! Our projects are dictated by community need. As a result, you may be renovating a school, building a home, or constructing a community center. No matter which phase of a project you join, be assured that your contribution will be lasting and greatly appreciated. No experience is necessary, as you will be working alongside locals with lots of experience using local materials.

By joining a building project, you will bring the human-power that is needed to fuel the construction. Projects are selected by community need, which creates a variety of different projects. Education and sanitation are usually at the top of the list, but volunteers also work on recreational projects, such as sports field-leveling and community centers. These often provide a great focal point for the community.

You will join a team of other participants and locals, all of whom will work closely together for the common goal. The Ghanaian workers are skilled and know how to use the local materials, so they will act as your guides and teach you many ‘tricks of the trade’, ensuring the construction can be done quickly and efficiently. Since the projects vary, so do the tasks, but keep in mind this is physical work. There will be days that challenge you because they are strenuous, but don’t be put off. Chances are, you will find that being outdoors and working as a team is a fun and truly rewarding experience!

Please be advised that the daily transportation costs to and from your program are not included and must therefore be paid by yourself throughout the course of your stay. Those costs may range from $2 – $6 per day.
