CorpsAfrica/Ghana was founded in 2022 with support from the Mastercard Foundation.
Known as the “Gateway to Africa,” Ghana is the first African nation to gain independence. Ghana is home to numerous ethnic groups with a diverse population of linguistic and religious groups. Ghana stands out for its accessible and stable governments, consistently performing well in healthcare, economic growth, and human development indicators on the continent. With this model of stability and growth, CorpsAfrica/Ghana Volunteers will work with their community members to identify the sectors of greatest need to implement small-scale solutions.
Volunteer in Ghana
CorpsAfrica recruits ambitious young people to apply their education, build their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and learn more about their countries and about themselves. They facilitate small-scale, high-impact projects identified by local community members, to fulfill key needs.
We expect to begin accepting applications for the next cohort in early 2024.
Support Our Work
CorpsAfrica addresses two of Africa’s most difficult challenges: creating opportunities for youth and helping rural communities overcome extreme poverty and build resilience. We recruit motivated volunteers to live and work in remote, low-income areas in their own countries. They collaborate with the community to design and implement small-scale projects that address their top priorities and by doing so gain the skills and experience that lay the foundation for personal and professional success.
CorpsAfrica trusts youth and rural communities to help each other.
