Dream Africa Volunteer Service Orphanage Project
Focus: Education and Orphanage.
The Orphanage Project aims to provide an opportunity for needy children and orphans to live and learn under one roof until they are adopted or integrated in the community or placed with family members who can take better care of them. Due to extreme poverty, neglect and abuse, many children in Ghana are forced to leave their homes to live on the streets or forced into child labour and trafficking.
Our organization’s initiative has tremendously improved the lives of children in Ghana. Our aim is to give orphanages extra support so they can provide the children with good quality food, clothing and school supplies.

Our organization’s initiative has tremendously improved the lives of children in Ghana. Our aim is to give orphanages extra support so they can provide the children with good quality food, clothing and school supplies.
Through the commitment and dedication of our volunteers, we have contributed immensely to the basic education of these children who sometimes lack the quality foundation. Most of the orphanages in Ghana are resource poor, under staffed, and are facing lots of problems to run the home.
The orphanage needs extra pairs of hands to help with the day-to-day running of the project with works like cleaning, cooking and serving food to the children.
