(Hope for Rural  Dwellers)

Program Cost and Fees

Hope and Service to Mankind Foundation programmes allow anyone wishing to volunteer overseas  the  the opportunity to do so.

We welcome volunteers who want to participate free of charge (Except our Drumming and                                                                                                        Dancing Camps) but on conditions (that the success of our projects largely depends on volunteer’s                                                                                      contribution in many different ways and membership fees as we are not funded by any donor agency.      at this time).

Volunteers help raise funds, donate clothes, shoes, cash, books, computers, and other logistics for                                                                                                  the success of our projects. Our team uses maximum percentage of donations to contribute general                                                                                             materials and other resources  to the project communities.

Hope and Service to Mankind Foundation is always looking for talented and experienced individuals                                                                                                  to join our team.  We work very differently to most organisations and are focused on such things as                                                                                        home/work balance, utilising technology and bringing on board typically disenfranchised groups. Simply tell us                                                                                                      what you can bring to Hope and Service to Mankind Foundation as a volunteer.

The communities you are going to serve are already in need of infrastructure and support. Therefore community members and our partners are unable to pay foreign volunteers to come and assist, or able to provide financial support for visiting volunteers whilst they help to improve the quality of their lives and communities but they do help in many other ways.

Host Family Programme;
We provide superb host families who will make you feel extremely welcome and comfortable, helping you to understand and experience their colourful culture. Our host families are traine on how to handle and deal with their new family members (students/volunteers). The host families are also provided with all the needed resources to cater properly for their guests and to be able to  accommodate vegetarians and other specific or peculiar nutritional  needs of volunteers.

Your home stay is likely to be the highlight of your visit to Ghana. There is no better way to learn first hand about life in Ghana than by living among the local people and participating in their lives through helping with chores, cooking and other activities, and being treated as a member of the family.

The friendships made while living with a family can last a lifetime. Many of our participants have felt they will remain a member of the family for the rest of their lives. The host families are located in both rural and urban areas and you will be placed according to your preference.
