A year of volunteering
One year as a volunteer in Ghana or Togo
School or apprenticeship is nearly over. But what will happen afterwards?
You could directly start working or you could study. But what is the right way? You could have a little job and then lay down at the beach. At the end, you are one year older and maybe a little tanned.
Or you apply for a one-year voluntary service in Togo or Ghana, learn a new language, work in a kindergarten, a school or with street children and make experiences you will never forget. In the end, you are not just one year older but many more years wiser. One year in West Africa: Going there one time and coming back differently
Volunteers get to know what connects people in this world.
Would you like to get out of everyday life? With the economical missionary program of volunteers program of the Bremen Mission you can be useful your interests and talents in Ghana and Togo.
In West Africa, it is normal to talk about God and faith. That's why, we would like young people with us who have experience in working with youths and are open for other forms and faith and Christianity.
When you have applied successfully, you participate in intensive preparation seminars, so that you will be well-prepared before travelling to West Africa.
