Crossover Volunteer Ghana

Organization Description: 

Crossover Volunteer Ghana was started by Joy Avexoh and the CVG team in 2010 as a response to the poverty and lack of resources encountered in Ghanaian villages. And registered in Ghana Under section 27 and 28 of 1963 Companies Code (Act 179) with registration number Reg. No G-33,510. Having worked in the past with international volunteers in Ghana, Joy saw an opportunity to further utilise the skills and enthusiasm of these volunteers at a grassroots level in local villages. And with no shortage on the needs of the villages, volunteers of all ages and backgrounds have something they can offer. Joy has 7 years experience working as a volunteer coordinator in the Volta Region of Ghana and has extensive knowledge on placing volunteers and local projects. Our Aim: To work with Community Based Organisations in Ghanaian villages on projects that will ultimately improve the quality of life for current and future generations.

Our Objectives:

1. To utilise the expertise, skills and vision of volunteers to help Community Based Organisations (CBOs) improve systems within their community (e.g. effect more children attending school, improve resources at the schools, enhance current business practices, improve community members knowledge of health and hygiene) 2. To increase skills of CBO members in proposal writing, business administration, running a committee, budgeting, basic computer skills and English 3. To promote volunteerism and voluntary efforts in social and national development 4. To encourage local and international volunteers to contribute to community development 5. To fight poverty and exclusion, to strengthen the capacity of disadvantaged communities and to support peace, human rights and equality for all through the mobilisation of resources
