I have always lived by the ethos that as long as I am making a difference, I will have no regrets. And this experience puts that to the extreme. Most of you who know me also know that when I'm older, I would like to become a teacher. I've always loved working with kids and offering them the best that I can give. If one things I say can inspire one child then I would be happy. However, being a child in England, to a certain extent, is easy. Despite the moans about homework and rules, our education system is fairly stable. It would not be unreasonable to believe that most children who pass through school in the UK gets, at least, a good quality of education. But this isn't the case in less developed countries such as Ghana. The Ghanaian educational system is not stable. You can't be sure that every child is receiving a good education, or even an education at all. That, is why I'm going to Ghana for 4 weeks Volunteering as a teacher. If I can dedicate a small amount of my time into something that could potentially impact the children of Ghana for the better, then it will have been worth it. Just because their country isn't as stable, shouldn't mean they don't receive a good education. And I would like to be a part of making sure they do.
I would be very appreciative of any spare cash, small or large, that you could donate to help send me to Ghana. At the end of the day, you're not really donating to send me to Ghana, your donating to allow someone to make a difference. Thank you very much for reading and donating.
The English Teaching volunteers programme in Ghana encourages students to develop a skill that will help them to achieve their future goals. Conversing with fluent, native English speakers greatly improves their language skills, essential for future employment. Education is a priority for the Ghanaian government. The implementation of FCUBE (Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education) between 1996-2005 in Ghana has allowed many poorer families to send their children to school. However, severe classroom overcrowding, lack of educational materials and an overall weak infrastructure are common problems that the Ghanaian educational system face.
