(Pre) Volunteering and discovering Ghana
The 13th of July will be the start of my first trip on my own. I will visit Ghana to participate in the microfinance project in Koforidua. The project is hosted by Projects Abroad ltd.
The aim of the microfinance project in Ghana is to help local individuals and groups to find a way out of poverty.
The project gives the vulnerable and disadvantaged of society the help they need to strengthen their position in society.
Projects Abroad provides funding and training to give them the chance to start their own small company. Candidates will receive a small loan, which they repay within a certain time under guidance. We hope that this will enable a sustainable future for themselves and their families.
My daily tasks will consist out of:
* Reading business plans
* Developing marketing strategies
* Managing loans
* The monitoring of the individuals and groups who have received a loan
* Giving weekly workshops
* Providing general business guidance and support
Because of the limited time that I have this summer, I will be volunteering for two weeks and after that I will travel around with my backpack to see what Ghana has more to offer.
I am very excited to start and experience the new culture and a new way of life.
Thank you for reading my first blog. My second blog will follow in July.

What a bright idea to volunteer. My thought went to “Heal the World” of Michael Jackson…
I am very curious about your experiences this three weeks will bring you.
Keep posting and stay safe!
Wish you all the best and good luck.

I miss the word "microfinance" in your tags. Perhaps you can add it.
