How it all started:
In the early 2008, two young social workers; Douglas Yaw Nkrumah (Ghanaian) and Yaw Asare (Ghanaian) who was then mentors for foreign volunteers for a bigger organization saw the need to team up with Malte Löhlein (German) and Peter Dwumah (Ghanaian) to establish LoszuGhana Association(NGO) with the aim to help people interested in volunteering in Ghana to be able to do so at a relatively cheaper cost and also provide enough information about the projects, accommodation and other services we render to volunteers before coming to Ghana.
In 2008, Loszughana Association was registered as an NGO in Ghana and also had a branch as LoszuGhana e.V in Germany.
Our main motivation is to listen the voice of volunteers, institutions, organizations etc. to provide the assistance they need in their admirable attempt to render their selfless service to the needy people and projects. The team; Douglas, Malte, Asare and Peter felt that assistance was lacking in the bigger organizations.
LoszuGhana is now a multinational organization championing the course of offering the youth and passionate people to explore their horizon, break cultural barriers and promoting globalization.
We offer you assistance and advice as to choosing your project, finding accommodation, organizing flights and vaccinations and answering any other questions you might have before going to Ghana.
Once you are in Ghana you will always have the opportunity to talk to people from the organization if you wish. You will see the other volunteers and the people from the organization in Ghana on the regular basis, so you the opportunity to discuss your experiences with other people who really are in the same field as you are.
LoszuGhana as part of the community:
We offer our local and foreign volunteers the opportunity to volunteer in our projects, promote cross-cultural integration through our voluntary work programmes, all at a relatively low but fair prices for all parties involve. The NGO raises awareness on social issues , is active with its HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaign, different Malaria Prevention Actions and the promotion of healthy style of living. But most importantly we always selects projects that we feel are making a difference. Most of our project are grassroots-projects, which means that they have been started by Ghanaians who saw the need for change and then took action. We want to encourage more Ghanaians to take maters in to their own hands.
