Visiting Ghana will provide you with limitless opportunities to observe beauty in numerous forms: in the landscapes, in the art scene, and especially in the people. Our placements will bring you to new places along the coast of Africa and into the capital cities, each giving you a different perspective of the country.
Ghana’s capital, Accra is known for its historical architecture, lively markets, art galleries, and museums. The sandy beaches of Kokrobite are a nice escape for locals and visitors to relax or fish in the Atlantic Ocean. Most of your time will be spent in rural Ghana, such as the villages of Senya Beraku. As you interact with the community through medical clinics, art, or sports, you will realise they have an overwhelming amount of joy and love to give.
“I wanted to find out more about the world and about people; the different ways that people live, choose to live their lives, the way that they react to their environment is really interesting. And I realised I didn’t have any first-hand experience. You learn about these things in theory, but it’s priceless to go somewhere and talk to people about what they do day to day and to be there and let it sink in.”
