WELCOME TO PHILANTHROPIC VOLUNTEERS OF GHANA(PHIVOG)

PHIVOG is an officially registered, non-profit making, non-governmental organisation in Accra, Ghana. The organisation was formed by a core group of philanthropic volunteers from Ghana, the UK, Ireland and Holland.  In the course of traversing the African continent Ghana captured their hearts and inspired their imagination. Their experience propelled them to focus their collective efforts and passions in supporting and promoting volunteering opportunities in Ghana.
The philanthropic volunteers, committed to grassroots activity, fully understood that working with local people was vital to developing a purposeful, sustainable and effective organisation.  They were fortunate in making connections with a local family whose members are passionate and dedicated to volunteering. The family’s strong commitment to their faith means that they see their work with PHIVOG as a social and spiritual responsibility. The family have been instrumental in maintaining that PHIVOG is both well organised and ethically informed in terms of its actions and thinking.

At PHIVOG we know that actions speak louder than words, as Ghandi says, “action expresses priorities”. Therefore, our priority is to act in accordance with our organisational aims, in providing authentic, dynamic and productive volunteering experiences. This means making sure that we fully understand the needs, both of the communities with whom we work collaboratively with, and the needs of the volunteers, in order to:

  • Ensure the effectiveness of the partnerships we help to develop between communities and volunteers, therefore maximising social gains for disadvantaged communities.
  • Assist volunteers by offering a tailored package including placement, accommodation, travel advice, an orientation service on arrival & organised trips and activities. We have a buddy scheme where each volunteer or group will be assigned a member of the PHIVOG team to ensure they have access to ongoing support throughout their stay.
  • Ensure first class voluntary services to both local and international volunteers.
  • Ensuring that staff are well motivated and have a conducive work environment.
  • Recruiting and retaining the best human resources to carry out our social organizational mandate.
  • Applying best practice in internal policies, procedures and service. 
  • Focusing on our core social services and competence.

The decision to volunteer, maybe traveling to a country you have never been to before, is an immense undertaking. We realise that volunteers need to feel assured that the service we provide is well considered and comprehensive. We try to think of everything that will help our volunteers to feel as comfortable and confident about their stay in Ghana as possible.
