About the local hosting organizationICYE GHANA It is a NGO founded after charity motivation. It hosts 17 orphans and half-orphans, from which some were picked up from the streets. The socalled half-orphans have one living parent, who cannot provide even for him/herself, so they rather give it to the care of the orphanage. That is how the children receive a home, regular nutrition and health care.
About the volunteer workThe day beggins with the kids getting ready for their school and ends when they go to bed at night. The orphanage provides education, food, leisure activities and anything else that the children might need. To support the "House Mother", teach in the school, take care of the children, go shopping for food at the town market. To help in the kitchen, help the children with their homework, help wash clothes, play with the children, organize leisure activities (sport competitions). Any extra knowledge that the volunteer can teach or any activity they want to develop is accepted (after approval of the staff).
Local accommodationThe project would provide accommodation for the volunteers, this can be either in a host family or at the project. Volunteers should be informed that they will be sharing room with other volunteers. The project in collaboration with ICYE GHANA will make provision for feeding during their stay.
