Environmental Conservation

Volunteer Abroad

Environmental Conservation

Conservation and Renewable Energy volunteers work at Ghana national parks and wildlife preserves, or with international and local agencies to help alleviate the environmental problems facing wildlife and biodiversity and implement alternative energy methods. Volunteers plant trees and engage in research, environmental education, and program implementation. You will leave with a greater knowledge and understanding of Ghana, and a feeling that you made a positive contribution to the environment.

Abroad Impact also offers a workshop focusing on renewable energy. The purpose of the program is to learn about energy alternatives and the energy problem in Ghana, and work on projects such as installing solar panels in a hospital, building solar battery chargers, setting up solar energy cooking stoves, and more. Contact us for updates.
