Agriculture & Farming Project in Ghana

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The focus of this project is to address the difficulties facing orphanage placements in terms of providing a sustainable food source for the children. To support the orphanages where our volunteer’s work, the produce grown through the Agriculture project is donated to these orphanages, thus supplementing the children’s food intake. The work available is dependent on the season and where volunteers are placed. Volunteers will be involved in clearing land for growing crops, assisting with fertilizing the land, developing land for cropping, planting crops, nurturing crops, teaching farming techniques to local staff, assisting with purchasing stock, caring for stock, and fencing and moving stock.
The Agriculture Project in Ghana is designed for those volunteers who enjoy the more physical aspect of volunteering and don’t mind getting their hands dirty. Volunteer work on the Agriculture Project involves both crop farming (eggplants, capsicums, palms etc.) and animal farming (rabbits, goats, chickens etc.).
Please note, resources and machinery are extremely limited on this project and most work is very labour intensive. Volunteers should bring gloves, flashlight, light weight scarf for sun protection or hat, insect repellent, working boots, water bottle (all can be purchased in Ghana).
