Join TEN in the beautiful community of Winneba on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean while engaging daily with children and youth promoting informal methods of education or volunteering in our health program as healthcare professionals.
TEN’s center in Ghana welcomes individuals passionate about education and healthcare professionals to our center!
Our educational activities empower children and youth to become proactive, making a positive impact on their communities. In our health programs, various healthcare fields come together to share their knowledge, skills, and experiences with the ultimate goal of promoting health, daily functioning, participation, well-being, and an enhanced quality of life among communities in developing countries.
TEN volunteers undergo pre-arrival and post-arrival training to prepare them for group living and volunteering. The orientation week introduces them to the center, local staff, volunteering sites, and local culture. Throughout the programs, regular meetings cover topics like international development, education, local culture, and perspectives. These sessions process volunteer experiences, provide tools for TEN’s educational model and healthcare professionals, and foster cultural understanding and identity as Jews, Israelis, and global citizens.
Residence: Our volunteers and staff reside together in a communal house. The top floor of the house is designated for volunteers, with communal rooms accommodating up to two-four roommates. The house features a vegetarian kitchen offering a diverse menu of both local and Israeli cuisine. It provides spacious living quarters, including a multipurpose living room for workshops and gatherings, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, and bathrooms.
Saturdays and Holidays: Every second weekend, participants have the freedom to explore and travel throughout the country. The program welcomes individuals from various religious and secular backgrounds. All activities scheduled on Saturdays and Jewish holidays are designed to be inclusive for traditional observers. However, every participant has the freedom to observe the Sabbath according to their own preferences.
Hiking and Travel Recommendations: The volunteer’s house is conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from the Atlantic Ocean*! In the capital city of Accra, you can discover the stunning Volta River and its beaches, experience the exhilarating canopy walkway in the rainforest of Kakum National Park near Cape Coast, visit the magnificent Wli waterfalls, explore the unique floating village on Lake Nzulezo surrounded by thick bamboo forests, and immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of Kumasi, home to the largest market in West Africa.
