Cianan and Gemma. Second row: Emmanuel, Kat, Amina, Yasmin and Patricia. Bottom row: Anna, Seraphim and Comfort.

My name is Tom and I’ve joined ICS to volunteer for six months as a team leader in Ghana. Originally from Essex, I’ve been working and living in London since graduating in Languages from King’s College London. I chose to do ICS for a variety of reasons, but broadly: to learn new skills, to experience something completely different and to have a sense of community through nothing other than common humanity.

My name is Anna from Akuapem-Mampong, Eastern region of Ghana, and I am volunteering as a leader for Team Bolga. Following my undying passion and commitment in being a positive influence for the good of my immediate society and the World at large, the ICS scheme has afforded me the opportunity in making this a reality.

What’s up! I am Seraphim Ampong, 19. I completed senior high school in 2015, and I am now planning to go to school this year to study journalism. My reason for doing ICS is that I want to challenge myself to help change the world into making it a better place. I love singing, dancing and having fun.

Hi, my name is Cianan John Whelan. I have just finished studying at the University of Manchester, and I live in West London, Ealing. I am very interested in Politics and History and I would love to be a journalist or a writer.

I am Comfort, from Bawku but I reside in Sandema. I am 20 years old and fair in complexion. I love Jollof rice and sleep at my leisure time. I joined ICS because I want to develop my skills and improve my self-confidence. I am keen to do charity work and travel so I hope ICS will be the perfect trip for me!

My name is Gemma Mcsherry, 22, and I’m a Fine Art graduate from Northern Ireland. Having lived in Leeds, West Yorkshire for four years whilst pursuing my studies and therefore spending so much time in one place, ICS seemed like a great opportunity to commit oneself to life in another culture whilst helping others. After ICS I will be studying for an MA in Culture Anthropology and hope to continue my work as a freelance writer. Of course, ICS is an ideal pre-course to the study of culture and I am delighted to be part of Team Bolga.

My name is Patricia Amogbisa Lamisi. I come from Sandema in the Upper Region of Ghana and I am 20 years of age. I completed Bolgatanga Secondary School (Big Boss) in the year 2015. The reason why I want to work with ICS is to help educate our people on how to do their business and also learn how to wear baskets and leather fabric combined.

I’m Yasmin, I’m 22 from South Manchester, England. I love adventure, travelling and exploring new cultures which are some of my main motivations for taking part on the ICS scheme. I also wanted to challenge myself to take on a completely new experience, whilst making a positive and lasting difference.

My name is Amina Hunte, 25, from London. My reason for doing ICS was because I really wanted to challenge myself and jump into something new. I knew it would be really hard being away from home for such a long period of time trying new food, picking up different languages and just being completely out of my comfort zone, but I am looking forward to embracing it.

Hello! Ayimzaam Benjamin is my name, from Kandiga but I live in Berekum in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. I have just finished studying health care at college and I wish to help people build their capacity and alleviate poverty because “Every one can do”. 

Hi, I’m Katherine, 25, currently living in London with a background in photography and marketing. I am volunteering on the Trade Aid project because I am happiest when I am travelling, immersing myself in other cultures and using my skills to help improve the lives of other people.

Hello, my name is Emmanuel Kobina Ansah from  Accra, Southern Ghana. Growing up, I have felt passionate about wanting to help people, and fortunately ICS has given me the opportunity to help create change here in Bolgatanga.
