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. Unlike typical missions to Africa, Global Leadership Adventures offers high school volunteer abroad in Africa that is exclusive to teens; and our programs in Ghana are focused on community service.
