Gap Year in Ghana

Although the country’s education system has improved immeasurably since the 1970s, there aren’t yet enough school places for all the children. Students are taught in English, and classes are free (but not compulsory).

There are plenty of sports opportunities, from football and rugby to boxing (Ghana’s second most popular sport), and hockey to netball. Ghanaian girls’ education was poor until the end of the twentieth century, but initiatives have now improved awareness and opportunities for young girls. You’ll find them eager to participate in extra-curricular sports activites.
