Ghana: A Trip into History

$5395** per person                                    Book Now Connect with Us

Embark on a journey to West Africa, to a country rich with cultural and environmental diversity, a beautiful coast and an unmatched history.

Celebrate the unique opportunity to partake in the initial stages of our partnership with the communities in Ghana. Work on building some of Ghana’s first Free The Children schools, and join local children in some dancing or a game of soccer.

Hike through an indigenous jungle and embark on a canopy walk in the Kakum National Forest. Explore both historical and modern-day issues as you visit the Cape Coast Castle, known as the ‘gateway to Africa’ during the slave trade, then visit nearby fishing villages to learn about child labour in Ghana.

From lush forests to the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, you will immerse yourself in the beauty of Ghanaian culture—a culture tagged by the vibrant colours from its many markets and batik fabric.

Trip Highlights

  • Make a difference: Volunteer abroad and help build a school for children without access to education.
  • Walk in the footsteps of locals: Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Ghanaian culture—learn the local Fante language and visit a fishing village.
  • Experience one-of-a-kind adventures: Embark on a forest canopy walk and learn about indigenous species.
  • Delve into Ghanaian history: Visit the historic Cape Coast Castle, a fort built for trade and later used during the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Participant Testimonial

“”When I returned from the volunteer trip, I got more than what I asked for. Not only did I appreciate the life I had a lot more, but the trip really ignited my passion for helping others and let me see the world in a broader view. Instead of just seeing a slideshow or video about poverty, experiencing it first-hand is completely different.” -Simon Lee, student
