Education as vital, it is the central force that holds the corners of every nation. It is to be widely experienced if a nation wants to enjoy an outstanding development and success. P.Y.V.O has presented herself as a body readily available to help improve upon issues concerning education in Ghana. Moreover P.Y.V.O opens her doors to volunteers around the world to visit Ghana to assist in teaching. Volunteers assist on this program by teaching English to nursery school children, primary school children, and community leaders in the area. Volunteers will also provide much needed education on HIV/AIDS by raising awareness in the local community and rural areas of Ghana. Projects Below is some information on our current project partners that our volunteers will work with during their time in Ghana. Nursery schools: P.Y.V.O Ghana works with several nursery schools across the country. Nursery schools are usually divided into three classes in Ghana; babies (ages 3-4), adolescents (ages 4-5) and teens (ages 5-7). Our volunteers typically work with adolescents and teens, helping the local teacher to teach the children English, singing songs, playing games, and leading creative activities. Primary schools: Most nursery schools are attached to primary schools. Depending on the need of the primary school teachers, our volunteers will support them in teaching the lower classes, as well as undertaking activities such as arts and crafts, sports, and games with the children. After-school clubs: Our volunteers organize various activities with local children, such as sports, games, arts and crafts, and other thematic activities. P.Y.V.O Ghana also works closely with volunteers to educate the locals on HIV/AIDS after school or during their free time.
