InterAct does not offer a standard programme that has to fit everybody. >ou have the option to design your stay in Ghana yourself.
The programme of InterAct offers a lot of single services that everyone can combine him- or herself. You can bood a volunteer service, a host family and a picking service from the airport. Or you can simply go for a volunteer service and arrange the remaining stay yourself.
In gerneral everybody has to organise flight, visa, vaccinations and insurances by him- or herself. Thereby the transparency is very high. We offer preparation materials in our starter packet. It contains the contact to a local coordinator in Ghana and helps you to prepare for you stay. If you have any further question you can still contact us via e-mail, telephone or mail.
InterAct offerst the following services:
Volunteer service in a social institution
InterAct cooperates with schools, orphanage homes, hospitals and other social institutions. If you wish we organise a volunteer service in one of these institutions for you! The choice is yours which institution you think fits best. You can choose your project yourself. In general a volunteer works without being paid. The social institution thereby profits from you being around.
You can choose yourself when you want to start or end your volunteer service.
InterAct offers to search an internship for you in any institution or company that you wish to work with. Contact us via e-mail and we can think together what might be possible. We managed, for example, to arrange internships at a fm station or in a human rights court.
