They will be volunteering at Rhema Abutia School and Shalom School in the Woe Region. Some will be moulding bricks which will be used to construct a perimeter wall as well as a new classroom. Others will be assisting the teachers with the delivery of lessons and sports coaching.
During the project the team have also arranged to deliver some Scouts Against Malaria training sessions to the local Ghanaian Scouts and to provide Malaria nets for distribution to the local community.
In between the project work they will also have the opportunity to visit the Volta to feed monkeys in a protected monkey sanctuary, see the Wli Falls and hike up Mount Afadjato.
They will also get to visit the Cape Coast with a tour of Cape Coast Castle, an overnight stay at a picturesque beach resort, a canopy adventure trail though Kakum National Park and lunch at a restaurant built over a crocodile lake!
