Accommodation and Food
You will have the opportunity to live as Ghanaian local people do, so you will experience how regular days run in the village. We are usually able to provide private rooms for volunteers. Sometimes it might be necessary to share a room, in which case we would ask you in advance if that’s ok with you. Your room is equipped with a fan and windows are secured against mosquitoes with nets. In our showering facilities we use collected rain water. Village life includes toilet and shower to be outside of houses, so be prepared for a little of camping-style experience.
We provide water and food for our volunteers, which includes breakfast, lunch, and supper. Breakfast is served hot (tea, Nescafe, Milo, etc.) with bread. For lunch and supper, we prepare our local food (rice, yam, banku, fufu, plantain, beans, stews, soups, etc.). If you would rather like to eat Western food, we will be happy to try cooking something new with you, given the ingredients needed are available here. Please let us know if you are on a special diet or vegetarian, so we can accommodate your needs.
There is plenty of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables and fruits in food markets. You can buy exotic fruits like bananas, pineapples, papayas, mangoes, etc. for a good price here. Our volunteers say they are much better then imported ones in Europe or USA. We have a mango tree in our front yard so if you happen to be here in season you will enjoy mangoes straight out of tree!
