Duke of Edinburgh Residential in West Africa
Help us empower communities by providing education, clean water, and hope
DofE Gold Residential & Volunteering AAPs
A Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is so much more than a ‘pat on the back’ for completing a programme of activities. It is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people gain through achieving a DofE Award.
We are a DofE Approved Activity Provider for the Residential and Volunteering sections
DofE Approved Activity Providers are organisations whose opportunities have been approved by the DofE as meeting their programme and sectional requirements and can count towards the achievement of a DofE Award.

Is it safe to volunteer in Ghana?
Licensed DofE AAP’s are vetted for suitability of their programmes. For more information, have a look at the DofE website here
When you first come to the village we must ensure you are introduced to the village Chief as a matter of culture and the Elders of the community agree to let you fall under their protection whilst you are with us in Ghana. This isn't a tourist thing, it is good manners as we are guests in the local community.

Former Volunteer’s Quotes
“The people and staff really made the trip great with their kindness and care. I thought it would be a lot harder to adjust but they are more then happy to help you with anything from cooking to organising days out. I had a lovely time as a sports volunteer. The kids I taught were a laugh and eager to learn. I hope to come back in the near future and help out again”
“Working on the building site and coaching football has allowed me to build genuine relationships with a warm and welcoming community. Whilst it is hard work and at times you really feel challenged, the experience is one I feel I have grown from and will continue to grow from. By living in the community Village by Village provides a unique insight into African culture that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone thinking of volunteering.”
