WELCOME TO PHILANTHROPIC VOLUNTEERS OF GHANA(PHIVOG)

Travel writers have described Ghana as ‘Africa in microcosm’. Its concentrated variety includes jungle, beaches and historic forts and castles in the South, national parks and reserves teeming with wildlife, waterfalls in the eastern highlands, and savanna and lands in the North that evoke the mood and architecture of North Africa.
Ghana is an english speaking country reputed as being the most amenable, affordable and accomodating of all anglophone countries in the region of West Africa and the best equipped to cater for independent travellers.

PHIVOG is a grassroots, not-for-profit, registered NGO passionately committed to providing an ethical and effective placement service for volunteers in Ghana. We work in partnership with local people to develop voluntary activities that help to better the lives of socially disadvantaged communities & groups.

We realise that everyone who wants to volunteer has different skills, knowledge, expectations and amounts of time they would like to share with others. To reflect this we offer tailor made voluntary opportunities that vary in nature, scope and duration. For example, gap-year, career-break & summer break placements in areas like education, health, law, ICT, finance, and many more. Whether you are interested in teaching, working with orphaned children, supporting HIV/AIDS health programs, farming, environmentalism, research or accounting, (the list goes on and on)... we can find a way to channel your expertise, interests and motivations so you can make a real difference through volunteering.

VOLUNTEER / INTERN WITH PHIVOG
While the social and culltural wealth of Ghana is abundant it continues to develop economically and technically impacting on key areas such as health, education, housing and employment. Volunteering can mobilise relevant and appropriate support to improve living conditions where most needed. Willing individuals and groups who freely commit time and resources to assisting communities are contributing to a fairer and more just society and world.
Through volunteering you can immerse yourself in the rich social and cultural tapestry of Ghana, a country steeped in history and tradition. Informed and meaningful intercultural exchange and dialogue promotes and celebrates global diversity and encourages greater understanding and communication between different individuals, groups, communities, societies and nations.

THE BENEFIT OF VOLUNTEERING / INTERNSHIP
Volunteering is personally fulfilling because it enables people to put their values such as compassion, equality and justice into practice. Vounteering can be exciting, dynamic, fun, challenging, enlightening and profound, offering opportunities for personal reflection and change.

Not only this, it can contribute to the vocational and professional development of volunteers by building knowledge and skills and opening up new pathways and choices. It demonstrates motivation, interest and commitment to engage with others for positive purpose, an attractive quality in the eyes of current and prospective employers and educational or training institutions.

 PHILANTHROPIC VOLUNTEERS OF GHANA looks to support local community organisations through the placement of international volunteers. We seek to offer volunteers affordable, quality and skill specific placements with organisations that require their help. We believe our volunteers can be catalysts for change within these organisations. PHIVOG aims to communicate through its volunteers the positive story coming out of Africa.
