    "Ikando is an excellent organisation, and I would recommend you to anyone! Your choice of volunteer opportunities is excellent, and the placements are efficiently run and well supported (before, during and after the placement period). Your accomodation is very comfortable, and your staff are some of the most friendly and helpful I have ever encountered! I would definitely volunteer with Ikando again, and hope to see you all again soon. Thank you so much!"

How safe is Ghana?

Ghana is generally a very peaceful and stable country. In the Global Peace Index it is ranked above both the United Kingdom and the US. It is the perfect introduction for first time volunteers to Africa.

Our Ten-strong staff team will be available 24/7 to help you throughout your placement.

Explore Ghana

Ghana boasts beautiful white sandy beaches, dense tropical rainforests and wild savannahs. Volunteers usually spend their weekends together exploring the country
