Volunteer Opportunity in Ghana

Session brochure 2017

Flyer 2017

My name is Camille Bundy, and I am writing to you on behalf of the Ghana Health and Education Initiative (GHEI). During the summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to work with GHEI during their Girls’ Empowerment Camp. My stay in Ghana was an unforgettable experience and this trip has inspired me to work toward a new career path around Global Health.
I would highly recommend GHEI’s summer volunteer programs as an enjoyable and enriching experience. This year GHEI is excited to be offering two Community Health Evaluation sessions 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 Africa. Our volunteers take part in sessions lasting 16 days or 3 weeks, 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.
Not only is GHEI’s Summer Serve and Learn programs an enriching personal experience but also a fantastic opportunity to gain hands-on experience and transferrable skills volunteering in a developing country.

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