Become a Volunteer

All our communities need the additional assistance of keen and enthusiastic volunteers. If you would like to work at or become involved in helping at any of the Tore Communities, please contact Projects Abroad using the link below, who will be able to discuss with you the various options available. Volunteers are needed to help teach and inspire the children, to introduce them to debating and the importance of being able to express themselves and communicate and to help at the after school sports and music clubs. There are also practical construction projects available, working on the community farms or assisting with the small scale micro-finance projects being established for the local inhabitants.

Akokoa Village

Akokoa Village, located in the Eastern Region of Ghana, is home to a community of subsistence farmers. Akokoa is surrounded by rolling green hills and is part of a region that has some of the most fertile land in Ghana. Largely cut off from the development seen in other parts of Ghana, the farmers of Akokoa deal with the challenges of fluctuating crop prices, unpredictable weather patterns, and poor infrastructure.

Lavender Hill

Lavender Hill is a community of around 12,000 people located in the greater Cape Town region known as the Cape Flats. This area shares many hardships and challenges that much of South Africa has faced in the past 60 years. Poverty, sickness and social problems affect the township, which was once designated as a non-white community. Issues with secondary school retention rates and community development make Lavender Hill an area of much poverty, but also much potential.
