Seeds of Change now works with a number of orphanages around Accra, Kumasi and Mapong.

As a volunteer,you will work in one of the 5 orphanages in the area.

Some of the children in the orphanages were abandoned after birth due to their parents.

These Orphans are extremely disadvantaged and encounter a lot of hardships in their daily life.They are deprived of many opportunities necessary for their development. They children have never experienced loving, caring and stable relationships.

As an orphanage volunteer with Seeds of Change Association, you will help vulnerable children. The children will receive much needed attention, compassion, hope, encouragement, support and love from you. Through the education and compassion they receive from you, the children are empowered to challenge life, poverty and exploitation.

our volunteer orphanage placements or voluntary work with disadvantaged children is very fulfilling. Volunteering in orphanages in Ghana will be one of the most challenging, positive, life-changing, and rewarding experiences of your life.
