Thrive Africa is a Ghanaian charity that uses the efforts of volunteers to deliver a range of sustainable development projects. We work in partnership with Ghana Education Service, Social Welfare & Health Service to ensure our projects are of benefit to the communities we work in.
Thrive Africa prides itself on being a reputable volunteering organisation that builds partnerships with the communities we work in. Our mission is to conduct positive, fruitful and sustainable work while offering volunteers an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
When volunteering with Thrive Africa you’ll have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of development projects in Ghana, West Africa. While working on our projects you’ll gain an understanding of what the project is, why it exists and the outcomes it hopes to achieve.
We turn unused classroom space into vibrant libraries in schools located around Kumasi. We do everything from building the book cases to putting the books on the shelf.
The Orphan Welfare Agenda is a Bolgatanga based charity that provides home based support to caregivers of orphans. Thrive Africa provides income generating schemes for these caregivers.
Each year we plant thousands of fruit trees around vulnerable homes in the Upper East Region, these trees will protect buildings when heavy rains and strong winds come and provide a free source of fruit to the community.
During the school holidays we provide activity days to around 5,000 children in schools around the Kumasi area. We aim to encourage and develop skills & qualities such as confidence, communication, team work, leadership, problem solving, interpersonal skills and orienteering.
We have provided Kumasi Children’s Home with a vegetable garden to offset kitchen costs and act as a learning resource for children, built them a library and continue to support the development of their learning resources.
Many of the 140+ caregivers that work with the Orphan Welfare Agenda live in inadequate housing. Many caregivers share one room with the children they care for, our project aims to expand and improve homes to provide a more suitable living environment.
