“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

Written on: 15/07/2014 by Aleena443 (1 review written)

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

“Fab trip!! ”

A little late for a review as was the first trip to go to Ghana at the beginning of the year. I had the time of the life whilst out there, learnt so much and I know not to take everything for granted. Meet amazing people who I still speak to now.

“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

“Absolutely amazing experience!”

Written on: 07/10/2013

I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering with thrive Africa! The volunteer scheme itself is for a brilliant cause, I cannot put into words how grateful the community are for the help thrive Africa provide. I personally wanted a life changing experience and that is what I got. My trip to Ghana was a very eye opening experience which enabled me to really see how these people live. I met some incredible people and loved the country, there is so much to see! Our excursions were brilliant, I… Read Full Review

“Just Incredible!”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by ConnieGhana13 (1 review written)

Spending four weeks in Ghana with the Thrive Africa team was an incredible experience. I can honestly say it was the best four weeks of my life, with a good balance between hard work volunteering, viewing the sights and cultures of Ghana, as well as continually having a great time. It really has been a life changing experience, would completely do it all again, and 100% recommend it to a friend. All the people or the trip were strangers at the start, but soon became really great friends, who… Read Full Review

Everyone who works for them are so nice and friendly and were always available to help with anything.

“Best month of my life ”

Written on: 07/08/2013

Absolutely fantastic trip, had the best time met some amazing people, formed lifelong friendships with volunteers and felt very welcomed and safe with the staff looking after us. Ghana is a beautiful place full of inspiring kind people who were lovely to speak to and spend time with. None of us ever wanted to leave! Working in the orphanages and schools was so rewarding when we looked back on the work we'd done and the difference it made to the children's loves, I really hope to go back soon !… Read Full Review

“A life changing experience”

Written on: 17/04/2013 by LisaDover (1 review written)

I have been out to Ghana with Thrive Africa twice now and have absolutely loved both trips. Mark, Maxwell, Jerry, Kwame and the rest of the Thrive Africa team are all so welcoming and helpful and they make you feel at home straight away. The work in the schools and orphanages is so rewarding; you can instantly see the difference you're making through the reactions from the children. Once you've completed a library at the end of each working day, finished the vegetable patch in Kumasi Childrens… Read Full Review
