I just had a wonderful two months experience volunteering at an orphanage program in Ghana. The children were incredibly warm and affectionate. One can't help but fall in love with them. It was a privilege and a joy to work for them. They have become part of me. What I thought was going to be a two-month experience has turned into a life-long relationship.

What made the experience so productive was the great support I got from the amazing lady who runs the orphanage, Mrs. Sam, and the Evans Nkansah, our coordinator from IVHQ-Ghana. Mrs. Sam was warm, welcoming, and incredibly easy to work with. Evans gave the volunteers cohesion and direction for our work. I never felt lost or useless. He also provided a much needed liaison between the volunteers, IVHQ and the orphanage so we can all work in sync. I always felt I could turn to Evans for anything. I was very lucky to be part of this program. Without the support from IVHQ, I could not have had such a memorable experience and developed these precious relationships.



Hi Christine, We are so glad that your two months volunteering in Ghana were so memorable. Thank you for sharing your experience. We hope to have you volunteer with IVHQ again in the future.
