Join a Volunteeer Trip to Africa

Our objective of our Ghana trips is fourfold: first and foremost, we aim to carry out our mission of transforming underserved communities by inspiring and enabling remarkable individuals to pursue their dreams; secondly, we strive for a meaningful, authentic cultural exchange between our Africa volunteers and the local people we are serving; third, we travel throughout the area so that our volunteers have an opportunity to see the beautiful country in which they are serving; finally, we have a whole lot of fun. Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of the people of these communities while also impacting the lives of our volunteers in Africa.

  • Change the lives of hopeful children and their families
  • Join a dozen other volunteers
  • Improve school sites and teach environmental awareness
  • Explore the culture with fairs, home visits and soccer matches
  • Fully engage with the people

Impact the Community while Volunteering in Africa

One hour north of the capital, Koforidua is a medium-sized urban town full of ambitious young people. It also happens to be home to Dream Volunteers Ambassador, the famous Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah. Dream Volunteers has been partnering with EEFSA (Emmanuel's Foundation) and his staff for several years to better the lives of the youth of Koforidua, with a particular emphasis on the physically challenged.

Come help us to educate the children, improve the schools, and provide them with greater opportunities in their future by volunteering in Africa.
