Benefit from helping

Chance for Children offers the opportunity to actively help the organisation in Ghana for a minimum six months. If you are at least 25 years of age and have gained some experience in the pedagogic field already, you can apply for one of our internship positions. The internship offers profound insights into the Ghanaian culture. The adventure of living in Ghana and spending time with the children is an experience that will make a lifelong impact on you.  Our Chance for Children staff members offer valuable support for interns, especially in the beginning stage of your stay so that you feel comfortable and can engage with the foreign culture better.

Should you be interested in an internship with Chance for Children, please read our conditions and the contract agreement carefully. Fill out the motivations questionnaire and particulars and please send the completed information together with a CV and references to Luzia Hager, who is your contact person for all matters regarding the internships.
