Teach on the Beach is a non-profit dedicated to creating sustainable education in places where it does not exist, particularly a small fishing village, Busua, on the coast of Ghana in West Africa. It is through Teach on the Beach that volunteers from all over the world travel to Ghana to develop and maintain educational programs which include: teaching in the local village school, running an afterschool program for all ages, and supporting the young adults of the community with an evening program called News Hour. News Hour is a student run program aimed at exposing young adults to current events through the news and giving them the tools they need to think critically, form opinions, and become contributing members of their society. Since Teach on the Beach started in 2010, we have hosted over 75 volunteers from various countries around the world and have logged over 10,000 service hours. In 2013, 20% of our volunteers from the previous year will be returning to work with nearly 200 children in the village of Busua.
