Volunteer Opportunity in Ghana


My name is Sarah Harris, and I am writing to you on behalf of the Ghana Health and Education Initiative (GHEI). I had the opportunity to participate in the Community Health Evaluation portion of GHEI during Summer of 2015.  This was hands-down one of the best international experiences I have had!

I would highly recommend GHEI’s summer volunteer programs as an enjoyable and enriching experience. This year GHEI is excited to be offering a Community Health Evaluation and Girls’ Empowerment session. Please kindly forward this email with the program description below to any relevant faculty in your department so that it may reach interested students.

The Summer Serve and Learn volunteer program offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience in international development work in A frica. Ou r volunteers take part in 16-day sessions working alongside local staff to reach common goals. Our programs are each designed to complement our year-round programming and the skills and expertise of our volunteers. By volunteering, you will have the opportunity to learn from the local community and gain profound insight into life in rural Ghana. You will benefit from Twi language lessons, discussions on pertinent topics and cultural exchanges, such as meeting the village chief, a drumming and dancing workshop, and traveling to sites at the historic Ghanaian cities of Kumasi and Cape Coast. To learn more, check out our website www.ghei.org/volunteers.

I’ve attached two fliers with more information about the program. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or ghei.apply@gmail.com. I appreciate your time and consideration!
