We connect people with opportunities to collaborate with Ghanaians at home. We do this in two ways, facilitating short-term community-based volunteering and via skilled volunteering; matching young professionals with specific needs, industries and organisations in Ghana
Below are examples of some key pieces of volunteering work we have coordinated to date.
In 2019/2020 our volunteer programme themed ‘Pathways to Success’ was delivered in 2 schools in Tema, Ghana December 30th 2019 and January 6th 2020. The programme was delivered in association with local NGO, Future Stars Charity, 27 volunteers and 7 keynote speakers who we united over two separate days to deliver fun, educational, practical yet engaging workshop sessions to 99 marginalised children during their Christmas vacation.
- Pathways To Success: Volunteer Programme
Prior to the formal inception of Future of Ghana as a charity, the founding seeds were laid through an annual volunteering project which took place in Ghana during the Christmas holiday period.
Coordinated by a group of likeminded young people – lead by our Founder Arnold – the project named W.A.M (What About Me) Campaign took place between 2010-2014. During this period, the project was evaluated and directly facilitated over 1,100 hours of volunteering in Ghana since 2011, with over 78 participants from 7 different countries.
Unbeknown, these seeds provided invaluable lessons in relation to youth & Diaspora mobilisation and migration. The results from evaluations were reviewed, analysed and led to the drafting of the following youth policy brief
