Accommodation and Meal
During your volunteer trip to Ghana program, Global Crossroad's weekly fees include management of your accommodation option and supervision throughout the entire duration of the project.
Since 2003, we have been working with many responsible and experienced host families in Ghana. All our host families are situated in safe, secure and comfortable location, providing you peaceful living environment for the best volunteering experience in Ghana.
Additionally, they are mature, responsible, educated and very qualified to host international travellers. They work hard to ensure your safety and comfort and demonstrate this with great caution and care.
Having a warm and caring family to come home after a busy day is indeed a great way to adjust in a new country. You will receive personal care and attention from the family members. Staying with host family will be really a fantastic opportunity for you to immerse in the local cultures and traditions.

Volunteering in Ghana Project: Meal
Global Crossroad’s weekly fees also include management of your meal plans. You will get three local meals a day during your volunteering work. Quality home cooked breakfast; lunch and dinner will be provided and will consist of local ingredients and feature traditional cuisine choices.
In Ghana, a typical breakfast menu includes tea, coffee, toast, boiled egg, bread, etc. You will have a wide variety of Ghanaian dishes during lunch and dinner. Some popular foods in Ghana usually served during lunch and dinner are rice with stew, yam or plantain (ripen) seasonal vegetable, red beans, etc.
We can also accommodate vegetarian needs; however, we are not able to provide for other dietary restrictions. Food and drinks outside of mealtimes will be responsibility. In most cases, there are restaurants and markets nearby the homes in which our volunteers stay. Therefore, you can have meals of your choice if you want to try something different.
When you join a volunteering program in Ghana, it is highly advised that you do not eat food from street vendors and do not drink the tap water. You are responsible for paying for bottled water but you can ask your host family to boil you water to drink for the day.
