The AGORO NE OBRAPA (ANOPA) Project in Ghana has completed the signing of a four-year volunteer placement agreement with the Association for International and Intercultural exchange (VIA e.v)-Germany under the weltwärts programme.

Under the agreement the contracting partners agree on the implementation of international volunteer placements on the basis of common learning objectives.

Volunteer placements are educational placements offering young adults the possibility to make various new experiences while being supported pedagogically and professionally. The volunteers get the chance to reflect on their experiences and broaden their horizon.

Learning is primarily focused on intercultural and personal development processes and pursues various objectives: counteracting stereotypes and racism, promoting tolerance and mutual respect, creating awareness for a peaceful coexistence in a globalized world, experiencing the personal effectiveness by taking action in the fields of social and development policy.

The volunteers would support our institutions and enrich them with their works and backgrounds while at the same time developing their personalities, acquiring social and intercultural skills among others where after returning to their home country, volunteers may promote intercultural dialogue in a globalized world.

According to the Executive Director of ANOPA Project, Mr. Ernest Appiah, volunteering can bring meaning and purpose to one’s life, while increasing self-esteem and wellbeing. He further mentioned the need for young adults in Ghana to take up voluntary roles within their communities to help promote their overall development while acquiring the necessary skills for the job market. He further stated that the ANOPA Project since its inception in 2010 has benefitted immensely from the contribution of volunteers particularly from Germany and calls on the Ghanaian youth to take advantage of this unique opportunity to embrace volunteerism abroad and also in their home country.
