Tiki Ning, Education Standards Volunteer from China
I’m Tiki, a girl from the Mainland of China. I worked as a volunteer at Cheerful Heart Foundation for about one month. I’ll definitely say that this was really a life-changing experience for me. Thanks for all the people that helped me during my work.
Lucian Reed-Drake, Education Standards Volunteer from the U.K.
I had an incredibly rewarding and wonderful experience with Cheerful Hearts Foundation (CHF). I volunteered as a teacher in three schools. I was an English, History and Math teacher to students 16 – 18 years and as a primary school teacher in most subjects to 6-8 year olds. I also volunteered as an assistant football coach.
Eliza Mette, Healthcare Intern from the U.S.A.
I’m currently a senior at The George Washington University. This past summer (2011), I spent a month volunteering with Cheerful Hearts Foundation, from mid July to mid August. From the moment I contacted Eric in January, 2011, he was enthusiastic about every aspect of my internship.
Hannah Candassamy, Development Intern from the U.K.
Interning for the Cheerful Hearts Foundation (CHF) was a rewarding and unforgettable experience, providing me with the chance to work within a vital community organisation that works tirelessly to support the Awutu-Senya District in a number of social issues.
Lucas Healy, I.T. Volunteer from the U.S.A.
I am a fourth year University of California at Santa Cruz student studying abroad in Ghana from July 2010 until 2011. I took this opportunity to volunteer with Cheerful Hearts Foundation at the same time. My experience has been amazing. I have been trained by GIIP (Global Information Internship Programme) to provide organizations with basic technical needs, but also specialize in web design and mobile technologies for social advocacy.
Erin Casey, Healthcare Intern from the U.S.A.
I am a second year nursing student from California and I worked as an Obstetric/Midwifery Intern at Kasoa Government Hospital. Through this internship I was not only able to observe but also assist the midwives in physical examinations and deliveries.
Alex Boulos, Healthcare & Public Health Intern from the U.S.A.
I am a first year Masters of Public Health student at George Washington University. I interned with Cheerful Hearts Foundation (CHF) from Mid-July to August 20, 2011. My time in Ghana with CHF was both rewarding and educational. It allowed me the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of subjects while also gaining hands-on experience.
Joshua Zanker, Child Labour & Trafficking Intern from Australia
From July to October 2011, I worked as an intern with Cheerful Hearts Foundation in the human rights area. Although I have previously spent some time in Africa, this was my first time in Ghana. I was certainly a bit nervous about the trip, but seeing Eric’s smiling face at the airport quickly put me at ease.
Rosemarie Ricks, Healthcare Volunteer from the U.S.A.
Having had a long history of volunteering which included serving with the Peace Corp, nothing prepared me for the life transforming experience of Cheerful Hearts Foundation.
