Global Builders – Ghana NEW
Ghana was formerly known as the Gold Coast by western nations after the Portuguese found large amounts of the shiny metal in this magnificent African nation. Today, Ghana is known for the friendliness of its people, the warm welcome given to visitors, and its cultural uniqueness and identity. Ghana stands as a stable, peace-loving nation that is the perfect introduction to a fascinating and beautiful continent.
However, despite the cultural and social riches, about 40 percent of the population lives below the poverty line (Ghana Statistics Survey Report). We are building a community that partners with low-income working families who offer their sweat equity in helping to build their homes and pay back the cost on terms they can afford with no profit or interest charged.
There are several ways that you can get involved, donate to support this specific partner, volunteer on one of our Ghana Global Builders teams, which you can learn more about below, or join a trip as a virtual volunteer, choosing to donate your travel costs instead of making the trip. See virtual volunteering explained here.
