What Volunteers Are Saying

  • Holly Bacon

    "Volunteering with VACI is a one in a life time opportunity that allows you to immerse yourself in the Ghanaian culture in a way that no tourist can! I made lots of great friends and left with a great sense of achievement that I had truly made a difference."

    "VACI-Ghana is a great project that allows you to really make a difference; it encourages individuals to achieve so much from their stay, with great outcomes for both the host village and the volunteer. They welcome volunteers to take ownership of small projects. I really enjoyed spending time with my host family, I even went back a second time. I’m now studying for a PhD regarding the skills that volunteers gain in developing countries. I gained so much from this experience that I wanted to empirically study the effects!"
