About TEED Ghana

Our mission remains spreading excitement & improving education

TEED Ghana is a registered volunteer organization with a very strong Christian affiliation that is focused on bridging the education gap in Ghana. Each year we organize the TEED (Technology, Education, Environmental and Dance) program in conjunction with our partner schools.

Last year we volunteered at the St. Theresa’s Catholic School in North Kaneshie which happens to be 15 minutes walking distance from the provided accommodation. St. Theresa’s school begins from crèche/pre-school to Junior High School and final year students take the national examination for Senior high school placement known as BECE. Our second partner school is St. Lawrence Primary School located in South Abeka. The school is conveniently located from the accommodation (approx. 15 minutes). St Lawrence also uses the Ghanaian educational system.

Balance

As an organization, we believe that learning is not confined to structured classroom settings. With the TEED program, we encourage outdoor learning, through dance and sporting activities, along with the "traditional" subjects such as mathematics, English and science. The program also offers “special lessons” which focus on computer knowledge, hygiene and environmental conservation among others.

Our organization is also focused on the impact of climate change, thus volunteers are expected to participate in a daily environmental challenge with a goal of 5 stars in water conservation, limiting air pollution, avoiding food waste and eating locally, as well as environmental conservation, among others.

My experience as a participant on the TEED Spring Break Out Trip to Accra, Ghana was life-changing. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and grow as a teacher through teaching fourth and fifth grade English classes at St. Theresa’s school. I also enjoyed learning about Ghanaian culture and daily life through visiting different areas around Accra after school was out...our trip ran very smoothly and was an incredibly positive experience. I feel like our group was really able to build relationships with the students and teachers at St. Theresa’s.

Ghana was amazing. Everything; starting from the way we were received at the airport, to the sound of music in the clubs we visited and the scorching heat as we walked to school every morning. The people were also very welcoming, with most of them asking inquisitively about what we were doing at the school and where we had come from. The culture was a lot to take in, but we fit right in and were soon using tro-tros to visit the city, go to the beach and travel outside Accra; as well as trying to learn Twi, the local language. The best thing about Ghana, however, is the Jollof rice. I kid you not. Jollof rice is everything.We also got to bond a lot as a team, learn from each other how to teach and handle excited kids in a classroom on a hot afternoon, and laugh at the end of the day as we recapped our days

It was an unforgettable experience. We spent time teaching young and energetic students, however, this was also a learning experience for me, as I was learning from their teachers too. We had a schedule that allowed us to explore and travel on the weekends, and I was able to visit national parks, beaches, and Ghanaian markets. I learned so much about the culture of the city and country, and I was able to eat delicious Ghanaian food through the entirety of our trip. I am grateful for the opportunity I was given to teach and learn

I am grateful to have been able to connect with some young, brilliant minds during my trip to Accra, Ghana through TEED. The purpose of our trip was successfully fulfilled; I believe that it was due to the dedication of the volunteers as well as the students' willingness to engage with us both inside and outside of the classroom. The excitement of the students made waking up in the wee hours of the morning worth it. Outside of the school, we were able to explore Accra and meet locals who were just as interested in learning about us as our students were.

Thank you for such a wonderful trip. I loved the opportunity to practice my teaching skills as well as explore the country of Ghana. Everyone we encountered was super friendly including your mother, the teachers and students at St. Theresa, the tour guide at Kakum, our friends on the beach, etc. The students were so excited to teach us their games and learn about where we came from. I enjoyed traveling to three regions of Ghana: Greater Accra, Central, and Eastern and wish we had time to travel to more. One of my highlights was doing the canopy walk at Kakum national park just after sunrise as well as making new friends from Williams I wouldn’t have met otherwise. Thank you so much to CLIA and our leaders
