Thank you for volunteering to help our efforts in Ghana. Your volunteer work in Ghana is essential to our success there. In order to truly make a difference in Ghana, you will need time to physically acclimate and to learn about the work you will be doing. Because of this, we have a minimum stay of one week and we encourage you to stay as long as you can. As you will see below, staying longer also helps you to make the most of your volunteer fees.

  • If you are paying for one volunteer between 7 days and 30 days
    • The volunteer fee is a flat $720.
      • (Susan volunteers for 20 days. The volunteer fee = $720.)
  • If you are paying for multiple volunteers, each between 7 days and 30 days
    • The volunteer fee is a flat $720 per person.
      • Calculate your fee and enter it in the custom amount field
      • (Bob and his three children volunteer for 29 days. The volunteer fee = 4 x $720 = $2,880.)
  • If you volunteer for more than 30 days
    • The volunteer fee is $24 per day per person
      • Calculate your fee and enter it in the custom amount field
      • (Susan volunteers for 45 days. The volunteer fee = 45 x $24 = $1,080.)
      • (Bob and his three children volunteer for 35 days. The volunteer fee = 4 x 35 x $24 = $3,360.)
