Most of the children in Ghana are left behind to die or rot in streets as a result of striking poverty, illiteracy, increasing challenges of HIV AIDS and other social problems. Addressing this issue, Global Crossroad extends its hands to support these children and provide them with shelter, food, education and all the love and affection they deserve. Join our internship project in orphanages if you think you can help these destitute children and change their life forever.
The local orphanage centers in Ghana are very poorly managed without any strong financial aid and lack in skilled manpower and resources. Interns will have to work in all the divisions of the orphanage centers. Interns can teach English to the little children and help them with other subjects like maths, science, history and geography. Interns can either teach them in the orphanage or local schools. Besides teaching, interns can help the children develop skills on wood carving, handicrafts, painting, drawing, logical reasoning, creativity and critical thinking. Tours and extracurricular activities can be arranged to keep them engaged. Interns can also help the management in cooking, cleaning and day to day tasks. Children can be guided in their home works, personal hygiene and daily chores.

With our English teaching internship project, we place our interns in local government or public schools to endow these children with learning opportunities.
The tasks and roles in a school may vary as per your skills and interests. Interns can focus on teaching English and improve the grammar, punctuation and vocabulary of these children along with enhancing reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Besides English, interns can also help the students with other subjects. The schools follow a fix curriculum hence interns will have to follow the same. If needed, interns can revise the curriculum as per the requirements or change methods of teaching to make the learning more interesting. Interns shall be provided with all the necessary resources and materials required for teaching.
