Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer experience overseas? As a local, grassroots NGO in Ghana, the expertise and experience that volunteers bring can be enormously helpful in building our capacity. We recognize the value of internships as not only a learning opportunity for our interns but also as a chance for use to help create the next leaders in the anti-slavery world.
