Get to Ghana on a Voluntourism Opportunity for Amateur Journalists
May 28, 2014 at 3:37 PM
Most voluntourism projects involve hands on work along the lines of digging ditches, playing with children, or feeding animals, but Fronteering.com has a different opportunity for burgeoning journalists that lets them hone their skills while learning a new way of life.
The Journalism Ghana project pairs volunteers with a local newspaper in Ghana where they'll help gather news, write stories, research, and investigate local issues.
In addition to working at the paper, participants assist as teachers at local schools and explore the tropical rainforests of Kakum National Park.
The trip starts at $1495 for 4 weeks. Shared accommodations in a dormitory with a living room and dining area are included.
