Welcome to PREVOG
Premier Volunteers of Ghana (PREVOG) is one of the leading volunteer/internship organizations without any political or religious affiliations. We place special focus on community development projects, including wide range of humanitarian and community outreach programs. PREVOG has partnered with reputable organizations in Ghana looking for international volunteers and interns.
The programs are carefully designed for all persons, students, recent graduates and individuals from all academic backgrounds and all levels of experience. The programs include tailor made short term and long term experimental study abroad programs for school credit or for career development. One of our partnership organizations is Dream Ghana Foundation which is also a volunteer organization.
Volunteer experience: Laura Gier, Germany
I came to Ghana on July 1, 2011 and spent six weeks with PREVOG organization, working at the New Life Orphanage International in Nungua, Accra (orphanage and teaching placement).
PREVOG is the perfect volunteer organization to go for, especially in case it’s your first time to Africa. The program directors are very welcoming, support was always available, well-organized and very personal, advice (concerning work, transports, trips etc.) was always reliable and helpful. Plus, the program fee is low in comparison to international volunteer organizations. For a volunteer stay in Ghana, I would always recommend PREVOG as the organization who accompanies you best during this unique experience!
The host family
My host family was an extended Ghanaian family living together in one compound (several houses on a fenced area) and hosting several volunteers at a time. The whole family was very welcoming and lovely and always had an ear for our questions etc. Room and facilities were very good and the food just great. Great hosts and a good atmosphere that made me feel at home.
The volunteer placement
I spent the six weeks in Ghana working at the New Life Orphanage International in Nungua, Accra. I worked as a teacher for the younger classes in the orphanage’s school and spent a lot of time with the children (about 50 children from 2 years to 17 years old) at the orphanage during their free time, with sports, reading, creative arts etc. All the people I worked with were very friendly and really committed, the kids are all lovely and very smart. Working with them was a really unique experience for me, interesting and a lot of fun, I enjoyed every single day.
Travelling and going out…
Although Accra is definitely a great place to stay – very busy, interesting historical sites, shops, bars, markets, nightlife…etc. I spent several week-ends travelling and so got the chance to see a lot of interesting places and different parts of Ghana. Ghana is a great country to travel, with beautiful landscape, lots of sights and towns to visit throughout the whole country. Travelling was easy to organize and hassle-free, I met a lot of people (Ghanaians are very, very friendly and always willing to help a lost "obruni" (white person) and it made my Ghanaian experience unforgettable.Ghana is a welcoming and interesting country, I had an amazing and really unforgettable time living and working there, and first of all thanks to PREVOG.

During your volunteer experience, you’ll enjoy plenty of free time to relax, reflect and explore. There is a great deal of interest to see and a circular tour taking in the mountains of Volta Region, Wli Waterfalls, Tafi Monkey Sanctuary, Peasant Villagers at Kadjebi, Mole National Park, Kumasi (Garden City),Kakum Rainforest Reserve and Cape-Coast former slave castles are just some perfect trips.
