Volunteering with Pure Passion Foundation has been an experience of a lifetime. This was my first volunteer internship abroad and my experiences have been beyond what I expected. Pure Passion foundation is accomodating to your need and Andews was a great host and highly dependable. Ghana is a beautiful country with wonderful people and delicious food! I learned so much from this internship and I would do it all over again if I had the chance. I 100% recommend this organization without a doubt. Thank you PurePassion Foundation! Much love and Me-dasi!

I spent 6 weeks in Ghana with PPF, one of the greatests experiences of my life. Andrews, the current founder of the NGO, is a committed, caring and amazing person who tries very hard to make the most of your volunteering experience.

I also was able to assist and help in Emergencies and Labour Wards, in addition to being a part of the staff in a private clinical laboratory.

Put all together, I strongly recommend this experience. Ghana is amazing, and...
