Further information for volunteer

 

To become a volunteer you strictly have to follow our philosophy and our rules of ethic. This is necessary to achieve our goals and objectives.

 

After reading it please ask yourself before you apply if your own perception accords with ours and if you are prepared to comply with them. If you say “yes” than you are the right person for our programs and you should request for our application form.

 

Succeed in Ghana e. V. supports the needy children, youth and women in the areas. We assist them to develop their skills and create self-awareness about their role in the society. Their participation in the society shall be enforced. Contrary to the German culture where government or organization lobby for children and woman rights this is often missing in Ghana.

 

Especially in underprivileged families children are not considered as persons who have to be respected, loved and taken care of. They are often left alone without proper guidance from their parents and the environment. Most of these children attend public schools where the classrooms are overcrowded. Teachers are dealing sometimes with up to 50 children in a class. These public schools do not have adequate facilities and resources to guide and monitor the development of these kids in and out of school.

Lack of parental guidance and attention has led to children begging tourists for money to have a meal and other needs. These children always miss school or don’t go to school at all and have no prospects for their future.

 

Women’s role in Ghana is often not recognized and appreciated. They are mostly often seen as the one who gives birth to the children and take care of the house. Lots of them don’t have an adequate education. They left school early because of early pregnancy or the need to work on farms or others to take care of the family. 

 

Particularly in Cape Coast, which is the hub of tourism of Ghana white people are considered as rich and therefore as a resource to gain money whether with begging or criminal attempts. This leads often in a conflict and is a source of annoyance.

We believe giving the children money is not the solution to solve their problems. Therefore Succeed in Ghana e. V. brings the money which comes from sponsors and grants only direct in the programs and not direct to them or their families. We are convinced that the children have to become more responsible for their own lives. We want to achieve this with our programs with which we want to give them a perspective in their live and a future.

 

Succeed in Ghana e. V. does not want to take off the responsibility of the parents and the society for their children and women. What we rather want to achieve is creating an understanding and awareness why it is important let them participate in the society and give them a voice. Therefore we expect from our volunteers to be a strong convincing personality. You give the children their needed respect and love but in a way which also gives them limits so they see you as somebody they can trust and follow.

The women you must see as a grown-up person like you and face them with respect on the same level. You are patient and understanding in the way you listen and talk to them. Create a confidence to let them know that it is never too late to learn.

 

As you see this document is written in English. We expect fluent speaking English and the willingness to learn the local languages. We further expect openness for the new environment, friendliness and humor.

You should be creative and have your own ideas since you must know that in Ghana often things turn out different than you plan. However, you should be structured and clear in what you want to achieve. If you are also a person who is down-to-earth, full of ideas and curious then you can take home a full box of positive experiences.

 

As a volunteer you can work as a Field Co-ordinator (preferable when you studying a field which is part of our program or have proven experiences like a trainer’s license or an apprenticeship in occupational therapy, nurse etc.). If you just graduated from High school we offer you to work as a field officer in the various programs. All volunteers will be under the head of our program co-ordinator.

 

Succeed in Ghana e. V. offers you a new experience, your own space to develop yourself, guided tours and of cause enough time to explore environments on your own. You will never be left alone with your worries and fears. You will soon find out that the people of Ghana are warm and welcoming and cooperative.
