Gap Year Programs in Ghana

Why Take A Gap Year In Ghana

Ghana is often claimed to be the friendliest nation in Africa, so it's little surprise that so many people find it a fantastic destination for a gap year or first travelling experience. The capital Accra is a hub of energy and colour; as you move further afield you encounter stunning waterfalls, chattering monkey sanctuaries, vertiginous canopy walks, laid back beach party resorts and numerous other gems.

In addition to travel, Gapforce offers two highly enjoyable, career prospect enhancing programmes in Ghana: an internship in journalism and a medical volunteer programme.

Volunteer Projects in Ghana

Ghana is a great place to start your gap year volunteering. Poor state funding means education provision and the quality of teaching has a long way to go. Volunteering on one of Gapforce's sustainable programs in Ghana will give you an opportunity to inspire others and make the time you spend as impactful as possible.

I went outside of my comfort zone and did some amazing things and met loads of amazing people that were interested in what I was interested in, which is really cool!
I feel so grateful to have met people that I no doubt will stay connected to for the rest of my life.
The instructors are some of the most professional, kind, hard working, good fun and just bloody awesome people you will have the pleasure of meeting and in my experience the same is true for the volunteers.
I would definitely recommend this project to everyone who loves meeting new people, diving, beach life and sun.
Met some of the most amazing people who I will never forget. Thanks for one of the best experiences ever Gapforce!
