Our mission is to bring volunteers from all over the world to help our deprived communities. When you travel to the remote area’s in Ghana, all that you see are children schooling under trees, homeless and unsafe water supplies. It’s our dream to bring them to a proper care. We know we can’t do it all by ourselves, but we will try our best to do all that we can.
There are many children in Ghana who need help and it saddens our hearts when we visit them and see them roaming about in town without a proper home or education.
Children/Youth: Ghana has quite a large number of children who are homeless despite the numerous promises we get from our government and the political parties. The years goes by with the number of children increasing without homes and help from the government. We hope to help these children together with our volunteers to see the children someday and say that our help made them who they are today.
Women: The population of women in Ghana is much greater than men, most of these women don’t have education and same applies to their children. This continues to be so generation after generation because they have never known education. We aim to help these women by educating them on small scale businesses to earn some money for themselves and their children through our microfinance project.
We give our volunteers the opportunity to choose from a wide range of schools. The children from these schools are always looking forward to meeting new volunteers and to learn something new. Each volunteer comes and before they leave the children will learn something unique. The teaching placement entails either having your own class or being a subject teacher depending on what the school needs. You will be responsible for sorting out your lesson plans and the work that the students do. As a volunteer this is a very important job and you will be helping to shape the lives of these student
Volunteers get the opportunity to work in both government and private hospitals. You will have the chance to observe but only the qualified medical students get the chance to practice. It’s also a good step for those who are about to enter medical school, and those already in it. You will get to know some of the medical staff. and will also get to observe all the wards. There is also the chance to go to theater, observe and ask questions.
It is a great opportunity to be in one of these orphanages that are open to volunteers to work in. These children in the orphanages homes and schools are always happy to meet new volunteers all the time, it makes them feel part of the community. Mankind Ghana foundation spends most of our time in the orphanage with the children and provide our best that we can from our funds. Care work centers around helping these children with no parents to feel wanted while caring to their needs. You will help with their bathing, dressing, eating and if they go to school their homework. Above all else helping them have fun.
