Join Pod Volunteer to use your photography or film skills to capture and document the vital work being done by the charity as well as producing media to help educate the community on health and social care issues.
How can I help?
Volunteers are needed to capture and document the award winning charity’s vital community work. Use your photography and/or film skills to promote the community’s achievements and produce media to directly support the charity’s current building and educational developments and initiatives. You will be given a specific project to complete by the charity on arrival.
Current photographs and films are needed for promotional purposes including the charity website, school sponsorship, fundraising and other literature with the vital role of engaging supporters and donors. They are used to publicise the charity as well as providing a means of feedback for current donors so they can see the project developments, helping form an important link between supporters and the community.
When can I join?
Fortnightly Saturdays throughout the year for placements of 1-12 weeks.
Where will I be living?
Volunteers live in clean, simple bunk-bed dormitories with shared bathrooms. The project is based in a friendly village in the heart of rural, tropical Africa, 2.5 hours’ drive from the capital city Accra. The village is home to 400 members of the community, most of whom are subsistence farmers. It is a very welcoming community and they love having volunteers helping in the village.
In their free time, volunteers can explore more of vibrant and friendly Ghana. Whether that’s Shai Hills nature reserve, historical Cape Coast and Elmina Castle or the tropical Volta Region – there is plenty to see!
Volunteer placements start from £795 for 1 week. This includes your airport pick up in Accra and transfer to the project, accommodation, all main meals, induction and training and local language lessons + planning your trip support from the Pod team.
