Conflict Management volunteers document and offer input at our community-based Conflict-Resolution workshops. These workshops are three-times-a-week meetings with different groups in the community – where group members brainstorm on how to manage/ prevent/ minimize conflicts in the community.

They also discuss ways to maintain and sustain the peace in the pockets where there is apparent peace and harmony. There is a group leader who leads the discussion, assisted by an interpreter who translates from the local language into English and vice-versa. As such English-speaking international volunteers can fully understand and participate in the discussions.

Accommodation and food

Volunteers are accommodated by a friendly host family. Volunteers have their own private bedroom but share the dining and living rooms with other members of the household. Three meals (Breakfast, lunch and dinner) are served. The meals consist of a mix of local and western foods. Breakfast could be coffee or tea or chocolate beverage or oats or maize porridge with bread and butter or jam or egg omelette. Lunch could be boiled or fried yam  or rice or ripe plantain or potatoes or pasta or fufu with vegetable stew, sauce or soup. Dinner has similar content as lunch. As a rule, you can politely tell your host/hostess the food you don’t like – so they stick to those you like. Fruits abound most times of the year and are cheap. The world’s sweetest pineapples, mangoes and oranges can be found right here in Ghana Africa  😀
