Volunteers in Ghana stay with local host families. ELI truly believes that this is the best way to fully immerse in another culture and get the most from an international experience. All families are carefully screened and are well-respected members of the community with at least one family member who speaks English. Participants will have either a private or shared bedroom with secure storage (volunteer must provide own padlock).  Bathrooms are shared with the host family. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast and dinner daily.

Start Dates:

Orientation begins every Monday. Volunteers should arrive in Accra on Sunday.
