“Amazing experience”

Written on: 07/08/2014 by Danalou92 (1 review written)

The experience gained by being in Ghana is truly priceless! You genuinely don't understand until being in the situation and I would honestly recommend to anyone thinking about it! That being said, the organisation of the trip is sometimes questionable. A lot of this is related to the lifestyle in Ghana. If they tell you something is happening at 7am, that usually means 8am. This can be really difficult to get your head around as we come from a society matched with deadlines and you sometimes… Read Full Review

“A brilliant trip in an incredible country.”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by Stevens239 (1 review written)

My trip with Thrive Africa was on of the best of my life to date. Thrive Africa boasts a great scheduel, accommodation, staff, support, meals and excursions. For me it was enjoyable as it was so relaxed - although you work hard there there is a very laid back feel in the houses and on all the excursions, All the volunteers on my trip were super friendly and the staff make you feel very comfortable. The library building and time spent in the schools and children's home is amazing but extremely… Read Full Review

“time of your life!”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by Bethmcadam (1 review written)

An amazing experience with amazing new people. Getting to build libraries throughout the day and seeing how thankful the children and teachers are leaves you glowing. Spending time with your team on excursion and when building felt like you were one big family. And unforgettable experience leaving you with many emotions. You'd be a fool to miss out… Read Full Review

“Most amazing experience!”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by Sinead12345 (1 review written)

I can't really begin to explain how amazing my three weeks as a volunteer was! The library builds alone were such an amazing experience, seeing the children's faces light up when they seen what we had in store for them made my trip! Visiting the lake was so relaxing after our first week of hard work! The second weekend we visited mole national park, that was such an experience seeing all the animals up close! For the last weekend we went to cape coast for our last few nights, it was unreal… Read Full Review

“Best month ever!”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Leahshortx (1 review written)

Had the most fantastic month of my life. The staff are brilliant and did all they could to ensure we felt safe and had the most fun possible. Such a positive experience and met friends that I will have for the rest of my life. Would love to go back next year! Loved the option to purchase the excursion pack, would definitely recommend that as it's a good way of seeing ghanas sights easily and cheap. Food was good, cooks were accommodating however bring luxuries such as crisps and chocolate as… Read Full Review

“Best month ever!”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Patterson1954 (1 review written)

This review is extremely late and I have been meaning to do this for ages, however this time last year I was having the time of my life enjoying the last week of my month long trip. I don't know where to even start but if I say that not a day has gone by where I havnt thought about, or spoken about Ghana to family, friends or anyone who will listen - I think it says it all! The volunteering was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip, my personal favourite days were spent in schools meeting… Read Full Review

“An unforgetable 3 weeks!”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by Ghana2014 (1 review written)

I have to say my trip to Ghana was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have always wanted to go on a volunteering trip and after this trip I would love to go on another! It is so rewarding helping others and making a difference to their lives. The work that Thrive Africa do is extremely intimate with the communities and you feel welcomed and part of the family. During my time there my group helped to build a new home for a community that were taking in 5 new orphans; we helped to… Read Full Review

I had the most amazing three weeks ever! Couldn't be more glad that I decided to do it so would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about going. The work you do is so rewarding and the children and locals are all so lovely. The staff are also amazing and make sure you are well looked after, I never felt unsafe at any moment! The excursions are so much fun, and the whole trip is a good balance of hard work and amazing experiences. I will never forget my time there, and it's definitely an… Read Full Review

“Best experience I've ever had. ”

Written on: 09/07/2014 by AlysonYoung (1 review written)

It was an amazing experience from start to finish, there may have been some hiccups along the way but I beilive these are all part of the Ghana experience. for example having to wait for another van for a couple of hours in the hot sun was a issue, but it tests everybody's patience and tests how you handle situations which you may not normally be in. So carry on making hiccups, it's all part of the fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2014 by kayleighjxxxx (1 review written)

Volunteering in Ghana with Thrive Africa was just absolutely amazing, it's the chance of a lifetime to go out their and help those who need it! I met some amazing people while over there, volunteers and staff, I would definitely consider going again it made me appreciate everything at home so much more seeing how little they have but never complained once, there wasn't one thing I didn't enjoy throughout my experience (apart from being ill) the journeys we're very long but with a good set of… Read Full Review

“fun, hard (in a good way) and amazing”

Written on: 15/05/2014

It was nothing like i imagined, it was actually better! Everyone was like a big family and the staff members from Ghana were really welcoming and nice. We saw some really cool places and some really uncool places. It's really interesting to see how different people's lifestyles can be. Everyone in Ghana are so nice and fun, and i wish i could go back everyday!!! it's hard to see, but we're there to make it better:)… Read Full Review

I absolutely loved it, was so amazing! I would love to go back and hopefully I will next summer, everything about it was organised well I couldn't have asked for better staff than we had genuinely helped us with every single thing we needed and tried their very best for us. The work was amazing and you were never worked too hard if you found it difficult you just took a break for 10 minutes, I wasn't expecting much before I went but it was so amazing, at the weekend the excursions were great… Read Full Review

“An amazing opportunity!”

Written on: 04/05/2014

It was a bit tough at 1st getting to grips with there ways but after that it was by far the best experience I have had in my life. To see the peoples faces glow up when you help then is just amazing. IDE recommend anyone to do it! Working with the children at the libraries was the best bit of it cause they were really sweet. Hardest bit was the house building. Make sure you use lots! And lots! Of sun cream and eat breakfast and drink loads of what as the heat is rediculously hot but you get… Read Full Review

“A life changing experience”

Written on: 02/05/2014 by saeko (1 review written)

I had no idea what to expect before going to Ghana and was just excited to experience volunteering for the first time. I came back with a whole new perspective on life and a great sense of accomplishment. I met amazing fellow volunteers that will stay life long friends as well as staff that were there to support as throughout the whole experience. The work was very rewarding although tough- especially the mud house building. However we all came back to England wanting to go back to Ghana and… Read Full Review
