My Time in Ghana

I had the most amazing time when I was in Ghana! From working in the local orphanage to coaching local football teams I could have not asked for more. As well as this the structured weekend trips allowed me to visit the 'real' Ghana. So in all it was a well rounded trip with brilliant support from the London office coupled with superb volunteer coordinators made it a trip to remember!


Trip of a Lifetime

I definitely had a trip of a lifetime in Ghana and found it to be a great place to go for my first travelling experience as it is such a friendly, welcoming country. Leading up to the trip the Gapforce co-ordinators in London were very helpful and were able to answer any questions, as well as helping sort out things such as visas and travel insurance. The co-ordinators in Ghana were excellent, providing you with all the information you needed for your stay and were the first point of contact for any queries with placements. Placements were arranged really well and if you had any troubles they were responded to quickly. The co-ordinators are also really great at organising trips for you to go on as a group, for example a trip to the waterfalls, monkey sanctuary, canopy walks at Cape Coast and Big Milly's - a beach party resort. This experience is a great opportunity to meet new people from all different areas, and doing many different placements, and allows you to build really good friendships, even in short space of time. I would definitely recommend this trip, I didn't want to leave!
