Organization Description
Bridge Foundation(BF) is a registered charitable non-profit organization; with the primary objective of helping to reduce vulnerability among disadvantaged children and young people in deprived and under-served communities in the Greater Accra region of Ghana

For the realization of this objective, BF has established a Youth Leadership/Resource Centre, consisting of gymnasium, classrooms, library, ICT training unit and accommodation units for volunteers/interns. This multi-purpose facility provides opportunities for disadvantaged children/young people to improve their talents in the fields of education and sports.

We care about the future of children and provide practical solutions to problems of adolescent youth aged 7-18 years in deprived communities; using sports to teach healthy lifestyles, supporting education through infrastructure development and sponsorship for needy but brilliant students. As a non-profit organization, we depend on donor support and the services of volunteers/interns with diverse professional and career backgrounds, for our programs and projects.

Hailed as West Africa's golden gate, Ghana deserves its place under the sun. One of Africa's great success stories, Ghana is reaping the benefits of a stable democracy in the form of fast-paced development.

With its welcoming beaches, gorgeous hinterland, rich culture, vibrant cities, diverse wildlife, easy transport and affable inhabitants, it is no wonder Ghana is sometimes labeled 'Africa for beginners'. It is easy to come here for a week or a month, but no trip can be complete without a visit to Ghana's coastal forts, poignant reminders of a page of history that defined our modern world.

Travel north and you will feel like you have arrived in a different country, with a different religion, geography and cultural practices. The beauty is that this diversity exists so harmoniously, a joy to experience and a wonder to behold in uncertain times.

What all Ghanaians share are their hospitality and a penchant for socialization, placing them amongst the happiest, most welcoming people on the planet; and positioning Ghana the most idyllic place to volunteer.
