Ghana

The most popular destination for STAESA's volunteers. In general people are extremely friendly in Ghana and you will be humbled by their hospitality. But, there is real poverty in Ghana and you will soon realize that you are far richer and more fortunate than most local people you meet. You will probably attract your fair share of souvenir hawkers and beggars, but try and take the time to meet ordinary people going about their day to day business too. The experience will be worth it. Don't be afraid to step out of your house, just take some precautions. Capital: Accra, Dialing code: +233 Population: 31.07 million (2020) Points of interest: Kakum National Park, Mole National Park, MORE

Weather in Ghana
