Volunteer in Ghana
Welcome to Disaster Volunteers of Ghana (DIVOG)! We are a leading non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) in Ghana, Africa. Established in 2002, we are dedicated to assisting communities and improving the lives of Ghanaians.
Disaster Volunteers of Ghana (DIVOG) is a Ghanaian led Non governmental Organization based in Ghana that supports grassroots community development initiatives in partnerships with rural communities in Ghana and international organizations and individual volunteers.
Disaster Volunteers of Ghana (DIVOG) believes that through the creation and development of sustainable programs in the areas of Education, Health, Energy and Agriculture, communities will harness their own power to lift themselves above some of the harsh impacts of poverty.
We are committed to community empowerment, sustainability and mutually respectful partnerships with local and international volunteers. DIVOG projects include:
• Construction of schools , libraries, community toilets
• Solar power systems installation
• Health education and promotion
• community organic backyard gardens
• Scholarships for motivated students in need
• International volunteer programs
Divog accomplish it mission by partnering with the local villages, requiring local commitment of land, labour and materials. A true partnership where each community contribute to improve their lives by giving them hope for the future, self-respect and dignity in their own values, personal accountability for their success
When you volunteer abroad, you give a helping hand to poor and under privileged people, communities, and organizations. What many do not realize is that volunteering can also benefit the volunteer:
Learn something about yourself
Make new friends
Discover new ideas
Build your resume
Make a difference in the lives of others
Gain a better understanding of the world
We offer wonderful opportunities for people to not just visit Ghana, but to contribute their knowledge, skills, and passion to our communities. Volunteering with DIVOG will give you the chance to deeply experience our culture and build life-long friendships with the local people. Your contributions to the community are highly valued and will make a tremendous difference in the lives of Ghanaian people, especially for children in need.
We have volunteer programs in
