This programme is aimed at promoting volunteerism and internship through cultural exchange where foreign nationals (International Volunteers/interns) can take part in NVFI’s Volunteer and Internship projects and programmes to contribute towards the enhancement of development in Ghanaian communities as well as create an opportunity for learning, sharing and developing the capacities of volunteers and interns.
Our volunteer programme is open to anyone who is interested in our programmes, ready and willing to contribute towards the realization of the aims and objectives of NVFI.
The Internship programme is also designed for students of higher learning institutions such as the Universities and Training Colleges in Ghana, Africa or Abroad.
This programme provides an excellent opportunity for students of High Schools, Colleges, Universities, other educational institutions and individuals to gain new skills, and enhance their self-confidence.

This programme provides volunteers and interns, the opportunity to learn about the healthcare delivery system of Ghana and contribute to health promotion and the well-being of the people living in deprived and marginalized communities in Ghana.
