From the very first moment I was impressed by the warmth, the support and the love „Teach on the Beach“ is creating. Everyone is accepted like she or he is – you matter! TOB gives positive energie to the youth of Busua. It opens perspectives and chances. The NGO is doing wonderful work and in my eyes it is the perfect spot to do volunteering work.

I absolutely love Teach on the Beach! It’s amazing to know that people dedicate time out of their lives to teach children that may not have the same opportunities as others. You see the care from the Teach on the Beach staff, and the genuine care for each and every child!

When I got invited to join ‘News Hour’ at TOB I was so impressed. The kids were watching CNN and had a discussion and debate about current events. I was so impressed about their analytical way of thinking and the honesty in their conversations. I don’t want to reveal too much because I truly believe you have to experience it yourself. The entire experience with TOB has changed my life, and I am convinced it will change yours. Do you want to contribute in the future of a child? Take the chance and volunteer or make a donation.
Living closer to the beach was something I really wanted when I was a kid and having the opportunity to spend valuable time with kids who are always smiling and wanting to learn new things is quite refreshing. I feel at home and teach on the beach as an organization has done incredibly well in providing the needed support for its students and the community of busua.
Learning for Everyone! ♥

My time at Teach on the Beach was one of the best experiences in my life so far! I helped teaching the kids in an after school program and created a photography project. Both the kids and the other members of TOB made me feel welcome since day one and I enjoyed every day with them! I can only recommend TOB, it’s a wholesome project run by creative and caring young people!!
William was very helpful and very Informative his whole staff works very hard with the children and he is provide a positive future for those kids I’m planning to go back and Volunteer this summer As well
As a university student I visited Ghana and volunteered with Teach on the Beach in May of 2013 as part of a sociology class from my university. I was amazed by the leadership of the “Scholars”. At the time William, Ben, Louis, Henry, Anthony, Divine and Emmanuel were high school students. Each day they were committed to tutoring and helping the children in the community who came to the TOB programs. I was especially amazed by the News Hour program were children came to watch world news and share their thoughts every evening at 7pm. At that time my group of about 14 students and our professors said at the TOB house and quickly felt welcomed into the TOB community. I remember thinking that it was one of my dreams to return to Ghana, and maybe lead a group of students of my own. Upon my graduation I moved to Japan to work with a Christian Non-profit that develops leaders, aids in spiritual and emotional growth, and creates community among Japanese. University students. One of the staples of our program is yearly international trips, specifically where our students can see a culture different from their own and can volunteer. As the leader of the 2017 trip to Ghana I connected with William and Ben and lead a group of 8 Japanese students to volunteer for a week at Teach on the Beach. Our students enjoyed sharing Japanese culture, participating in News Hour, and even helping with English lessons. The men on our team stayed in the TOB house which was a in a bit of rough shape since I went in 2013. For those volunteering in Ghana, be prepared that you may not always be able to have running water or electricity. The programing of TOB seemed a little bit less organized than it was in 2013, which was a little sad. None the less I was extremely glad to return to TOB. Many of the students who were scholars when I first visited in 2013 have now gone on to run their own programs for community engagement and development and take over the leadership of TOB. This shows the lasting, generational impact of Teach on the Beach’s work. I would absolutely recommend Teach on the Beach to anyone looking to experience Ghanaian culture, impact young people, and make friendships that defy the boundaries of culture.
Just an awesome operation in the most beautiful setting on the beachfront of the best beach in Ghana. The teach on the beach family have such a wonderful energy and pure desire to have a positive impact on the youth in their community, you just can’t help but be drawn in and want to be a part of it. For anyone thinking of volunteering, I have only two words – DO. IT!!
Ciara Shelly, Ireland ‘Amazing Organization’
“I spent 3 weeks volunteering with Teach on the Beach organization, and I wish I could have spent longer! William, Louis and staff are professional, welcoming and helpful, the kids are so fun to work with, and the location is beautiful. Getting to wake up right on the beach every day, and be a part of such an important service (providing classes for the village kids), was really rewarding. It’s also a great way to meet so many new people from all over the world. I could not recommend this program enough.
Odile, Germany ‘Amazing Time’
“I had some very awesome weeks in Busua at Teach on the Beach. I loved the work with the kids and everyone is very friendly, open minded and welcoming. I would recommend this to everyone and I hope I can come back on day. Good Job, Teach on the Beach!!!”
William K. Sackey ‘Relationship with Kids’
“I have had the chance to work with the teacher, as a photographer for the organization and I must say I loved how they related to the kids, the love and passion they had put in with regards with helping them educationally.
