Volunteer with us
There are two ways to submit your application to volunteer with SAFE. You can either submit an application form online or you can download the form, fill it out, and mail it to us. We do not charge a fee for processing an application. You are expected to pay a deposit towards your accommodation and food and this has to be reserved early (within 14 days of confirmation of placement).
Once we get your application, we will process it immediately. We will read your application carefully so that we can find the project that matches your experience and best suits you. Our volunteers either stay in home stays or with other volunteers in a volunteer dormitory.
We will send you the details of your placement. The placement details include local contact information which you can use as the contacts for your Visa application. You can also use these to contact us about your placement if you have any questions.
Your preparation for the trip should include reading about Ghana, receiving the necessary immunisations, obtaining your travel visa (entry permit), and arranging your own flights. Our coordinators are on hand 24/7 to assist you with the process.
Once you have purchased your flight tickets, email the flight information to our office. We will then arrange your free airport pick-up.
