Overview

Overview

UP believes that every child matters. As a low cost, highly committed volunteering organisation, we work hard to support families and communities across Africa and particularly in Ghana. Our personal touch and close relationships with our NGOs and host families enables us to create your ideal volunteering placement. Without you, much of what we do would not be possible. Making it real: our MD has recently returned from a five week stint in the Volta Region, Ghana, where she worked on a construction site, in an orphanage and in a hospital, as well as organising the building of a new house for a family who were living in terrible conditions. We make a real difference and we need YOU to help us keep on doing that. Check us out at facebook.com/UnitedPlayground. Join us – join UP.

Length: 6 months
Accommodation: Host Family
Location: Volta, Denu/Aflao
Programme's: x2 Orphanages, Hospital, Building Project

In March 2012 I decided to travel to Ghana and carry out volunteer work for 6 months with United Playground and i can honestly say i had some of the best moments and experiences of my life. I had just finished my degree in Social Work so my finances was definitely a starting point and was the main reason that i found United Playground as their prices are very reasonable...actually very cheap compared to some of the big companies i have seen. Ann (director) did everything in her power to make sure that i was well knowledgeable about the trip, which made me very comfortable and eventually won me over to choose the company. The host family that i was placed with was AMAZING and did their absolute BEST to make sure that i had the best time and left with wonderful memories. I honestly believe that my time there was great due to Ann's constant support and quality arrangements. If you request a call back off the website im sure Ann will be more than willing to answer every question you have and settle any worries or concerns...she certainly did for me :D

Peace, Love & Ghana xx
