I had a fantastic time out in Ghana in 2007, so much so that my flights are booked and I'm going back this coming August. If your looking for a cause to get behind that will value your hard work, challenge you and provide you with more amazing memories than you could possibly expect, then this is the project for you! I truly believe in the work that Pat and the entire BASICS family are doing to help so many in need. It was a privileged to be a part of it before and help in any way I could whilst also gaining so much in return. I can't wait to be back there and see how all the children and BASICS as an organisation have grown.
Review from Guidestar
This is a great organization! I had the opportunity to volunteer in the summer of 2010, and what an experience! These children live in the poorest region of Accra with very little support for education. This organization not only gives the children an opportunity to go and stay in school by paying their school fees, but they are offered additional education lessons, help with their school work, and one meal per day, which for some is their only meal. If you want to support a wonderful, legitimate organization, this is the one.
