Give orphaned children in Ghanaian healthy lives, brighter futures and better care that they deserve.

Despite recent economic prosperity, Ghana still struggles to take care of its orphaned and handicapped children. As a result, many children live in the streets and are either exploited or involved in petty crimes. There are many orphanages running through private efforts or some through government programs that are taking good care of the children. These orphanages house, feed, send the children to school and clothe them. Despite this good work, these orphanages are always struggling for funds and are understaffed.
Join RCDP's orphanage project in Ghana and work to better the lives and the future of orphaned children. You will provide love, care, impart skills and turn the children into confident individuals capable of believing in themselves. In return, you will receive warm appreciation, an experience that will enrich your life and memories that will stay with your forever.

Skill/Qualification

You must have a passion to serve orphaned children and you must also be open-minded, resourceful and patience. You must also be willing to give love and care and make their future brighter. No other qualifications are required.

Project Location:

The work in Orphanage in Ghana project is based in Accra and Kumasi. Accra is the seaside city of Ghana. It's also the most populous and contains many beaches, museums, libraries, traditional markets and has a lively nightlife. The buildings in Accra reflect its colonial past and new development. You can see castles juxtaposed next to modern buildings. You can also visit shopping centers, restaurants and shanty towns in Accra.

Kumasi is the capital city of the Ashanti region. Also known as Ghana's second city, Kumasi is regarded as the cultural heart of Ghana as the vibrancy of Ghana's culture is more evident here than any other part of the country. The city's major attraction includes the National Cultural Center and zoological gardens with its lovely gardens but depressing zoo. In the villages around Kumasi, you can see artisans practicing crafts liking woodcarving, printing cloths and weaving. Villages like Bonwire are the place to visit for kente cloth, Pankrono is best known for pottery, Ahwiaa for woodcarving and Ntonso for adinkra cloth.
