Akwaaba is an exchange programme that brings groups from all over to live alongside each other and work together as volunteers; to share their learning experience with groups members and their host communities . Developed out of a highly successful YPB volunteer programme 'Workcamp', Akwaaba seeks to support the advancement of a global perspective among people.
The project works with teams with equal numbers. The participants (volunteers) are recruited, and the teams are formed, to reflect diversity in terms of geography, ethnicity, ability, education and gender. Together, in cross-cultural counterpart pairs, they live with host families and work in host communities, for up to a month or more. They also work on a global citizenship project specifically aimed at raising awareness of development and diversity within their host communities.
We invite applications from individuals and groups who are interested in participating in the Akwaaba Exchange. Participants (volunteers) must be sure that they can cope with the given standards of behavior before they apply for the program.
