Ghana is often called the "heart and soul of Africa" because of its welcoming, passionate, and peaceful people.


Why Ghana?

Often called the heart and soul of West Africa, Ghana is known for its welcoming, passionate and peaceful people. It is a particularly important place, because it is where many African-Americans can trace their roots. Ghana's government is democratically elected, and it is one of the few modern African nations identified as having a free press. Global Leadership Adventures offers teen summer programs for volunteering in Ghana; programs are focused on community service for high school students.
