Airport Pickup at Kotoka International Airport
Our representative will be at the airport arrival hall with a sheet of paper with volunteers name or the mode of identification discus before boarding flight.
Volunteers will stay with a host family that will be provided by SFLIG, which is very safe for volunteers and this will help them to adjust, adapt and know the Ghanaian culture and that of the community. Group volunteers stay together according to sex, couples stay together
Accommodation in hostels and dormitories are organise for volunteers of 4 groups upwards working on same or similar project or working at the same project site but each volunteer gets her own bed.
Food & Beverages
Host families are responsible for providing breakfast and dinner every day and sometimes lunch when volunteers are home in the afternoon therefore volunteers mostly go to the placement with pack snack. The foods served mainly local and sometimes continental with various fruits and vegetables. Volunteers are provided with well treated water which is purchased from certified producers of hygienically bottled or bagged water.
