Airport Pick Up: When you arrive at the airport, a staff will be at the Airport to pick you up. Please do not forget to send us your flight information and we guarantee, you will never miss us at the airport.

First Nights Bed and Breakfast: Airport meeting and hotel transfer for the first night of arrival. You will be spending the first night in Accra the capital city of Ghana if your flight comes in later than 11:30pm in the night, before proceeding to the office of  P.Y.V.O. the next day. But when your flight comes in earlier then we may precede straight away to Kumasi our base before you proceed to your placement.

Transportation to placement: You will be assisted to placement the first days during orientation for introduction. Transport is by trotro (minibus) or taxi which you are responsible to pay for. The journey will be taken by you and fellow volunteers on a daily basis.

Accommodation: You will be staying with a host family,  or within a shared volunteer house based on availability. The volunteer will be in a shared room with fellow volunteers. Our host families are carefully screened and selected based on P.Y.V.O’s requirements. All our families are middle-class and live in safe neighborhoods. The distance from the project varies. The family will provide three meals a day, supply mosquito preventive nets if you don’t have one, western toilet and bath, lockable closet, and fans. P.Y.V.O shall present a recommendation letter and certificate to participants after project as requested. Regular visitation by P.Y.V.O staff will occur both at the home and placement.

Food: Your meals are cooked and provided for you by your host family or the volunteer house. You will be getting 3 Meals per day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) traditional but very nutritious. Please inform us if you are a vegetarian or have food allergies, this is taken into account when we arrange your placement.

24/7 in Country Support & Supervision: Upon arrival you are taken into the hands of very responsible individuals. P.Y.V.O. offers you complete support during the entire duration of your trip at any time of day or night. If you need assistance medically while on your trip we have a very developed relationship with a local hospital to provide you the best care possible. On weekends we can assist you in planning trips or plan to take you as well as provide you with opportunities for outings in Ghana.

Administrative Charges: Our staff works every day to take care of our volunteers: Emails are answered; phone calls are taken; coordination occurs between projects; and most importantly volunteers are placed within areas of their interest in villages. Most of our staff works on a volunteer basis, there are at all times costs to any organization. We try hard to keep these administration costs to a minimum so that your money can be used most professionally.  

Security and hold up
Your well being while volunteering with us is our priority. We make sure your trip is safe and P.Y.V.O – Ghana staff will provide whatever support you may need at any step along the way.
