Volunteer in Ghana

Social Welfare (Orphanage and street children) Volunteer Work:
Volunteers assist in caring for orphans, destitute and abandoned children and street children. Caring work includes, assisting in cooking for the children and showing them love. Some of the orphans lost their parents through HIV/AIDS. Volunteers will also assist in teaching English language and other subjects and extra curriculum activities. Volunteers will be guided by a local teacher during the first week of classes at the orphanage and street children's centers in regard to lesson plans, schedules and teaching curriculum. People with initiative, drive, charisma and compassion to help the under-privileged overcome their challenges and their struggle for dignity are most welcome to participate in this program.

The target groups of people we have been focusing on training them computer skills are under-privileged people such as people from poor income families who as a result of that have become school drop outs, unskilled youth and in some cases commercial sex workers. This is to enable them acquire employable skills and live dignified lives for personal and national development.

The cfsites.org is the only part that matters, since aidafricavoluntary is just a subdomain. CFSites is just a free webhost for charitable organisations. It's legit, although there's no way to be sure that it's clients are; certainly not by using dnsstuff or the likes. I believe there are reports on this forum of it hosting some dubious sites.

Edit: I stand corrected... Refer to this link

It's not a troll; he's just a wandering, befuddled lad.

Just goes to show that lads just don't get what we do here.
