Volta Aid Foundation regularly runs medical outreach programs throughout the Volta Region. Volunteers may have the opportunity to participate in these outreaches if some are scheduled over the volunteer period. The main program is the diabetes and hypertension outreaches which we pioneered and work in conjunction with medical professionals in Ho (click here for more info). Other outreaches include oral hygiene and first aid workshops.services for the local community.
Volta Aid Foundation has the ability to host visiting medical groups (either students or qualified practitioners) who can combine work in a hospital/clinic with a structured outreach program. This enables groups to undertake an intensive short-term program over the holidays.services for the local community.
Our educational partnerships extend to schools of all grades, from kindergartens right through to senior high schools. The teaching program offers placements in selected schools based on your experience and subject/s of interest. Teaching volunteers do not replace teachers but work in schools where teachers are lacking or a support role is needed. Such support roles include individual and group tutoring and reading that provides a platform for students to excel in their studies.services for the local community.
Volta Aid Foundation has established two computer labs in the communities of Adaklu-Ahunda and Sokode and there is a specific need for computer teachers to undertake a range of roles, including, teaching of students, upskilling of staff and computer maintenance. Computer skills are essential for children and young people to further their education and opens the door for a wider range of employment opportunities.services for the local community.
Volta Aid Foundation is partnered with one children’s home that is approved and registered with the Department of Social Welfare. We take great pride in working with real partners that are making a real difference in people’s lives, and this is why we are working with this particular children’s home. We recognise that first and foremost, children should be with their family, relatives or communities. In instances where this is not possible, children’s homes play a crucial role in providing a safe and nurturing place for children at risk.
Volunteers can contribute to forming a positive and healthy environment by being present in the lives of these children and young people. Supporting the staff and caretakers, volunteers will engage in all areas of daily life at the children’s home, including performing chores, caring for the younger children, supporting the children educationally, socially and emotionally. You will become a member of the extended household during your time at the home as your skills, passion and experience are put to use supporting these vulnerable children.
