Organization Description
Jehovah El shaddai International school believes,exposing our future leaders earlier to the  realities on the grounds in Ghana and giving them the opportunity to know and experience the realities on the grounds in other nations,will build them and set their mindset to a place of change,thus we will be raising future African leaders, who acknowledge the position of Africa(behind,caught up or ahead)and be moved to positively impact and transform their continent.

Over the last three decades,we have been serving our community Pankrono and it nearby communities with good basic education yet at the most affordable price. And we have plans in making more children benefit from us.
We are looking for volunteers who are going to be means by which a lot could be discovered about their cultures and country by our students. They will be doing this in their own unique way, through  teaching,sports and other activities we have designed for our volunteers.

Volunteers will in turn experience and learn a lot from our students(about their cultures,how they think about  the world around them,and more!). Volunteers will be given opportunities and all needed assistance ,to explore our beautiful city Kumasi and other parts of Ghana.


I am Philip Frimpong. My mother, Comfort Frimpong , is a mother of nine and the founder of this school. I was around 10years old when I became a host brother of our first volunteer(Ole Fritz ) from Germany. At that time ,I didn't really know why he was in my house,all I knew was a new German guy is staying with us and I liked him and he really liked me...(he has actually been part of my family since then).Three years or so later, I was hosted by his family for six months for school in Germany . I learnt later that he came to Ghana through a placement organization and we hosted two more wonderful ladies(Christiana and Veronia) from the USA.I was exposed to a lot both as a student and a host brother,during their(volunteers) stay with us. Now members from our German family visit us directly (without any organization).

I have taken some managerial responsibilities of the school,alongside studying and would love to have similar exposure, I had as host brother and a student,for my students. Knowing the important role volunteers have played in my life for example and having learnt how much it cost Ole to volunteer in Ghana, I decided to join a community that is "fair" to volunteers and their host. It will be an excitement to have you as our next new volunteer!
