What does volunteering at Banko women center entail?
Banko Women center is an initiative of the Dutch foundation ‘Crossing borders for Ghana’, Moon&Star guesthouse and Ghana coach.
.The women center focuses on improving the situation and empowering women in a local area, located in Banko, Ghana. We want to achieve this by providing a reliable and safe place for women to meet, learn, discuss and sell.
Last year we started the establishment of the training center. Here, women from Banko will be trained in classical professions with the aim of enabling full and equal participation of women in political, civil, economic, social and cultural life.
The first project, the sewing workshop, has been successfully started after which we are now focusing on establishing a hair salon where the women will be trained to become hairdressers.
AS A VOLUNTEER ON THIS PROJECT IN GHANA YOU WORK INDEPENDENTLY, BUT YOU ARE NOT ALONE
We can use your help with fundraising in combination with creating social media content. With fundraising you can think of applying for grants and setting up sponsor campaigns. As a volunteer with us you work independently, the rest of the team is busy with other tasks.
If you have done a certain training or have a lot of experience in a certain area, we would of course like to hear that.
As mentioned, there is room for a few volunteers. So if you want to come with someone else, that’s no problem!
In your free time there is plenty of room to discover beautiful Ghana.
In our immediate vicinity you can hike very well and there is a swimming pool within walking distance!
