Volunteers

Since 2006 the driving force behind Cantonments Football Club's success has been its collaboration with volunteer organisation Projects Abroad. While every club in the world can benefit from new equipment and finances, we have found that volunteer coaches who are passionate about football and keen to learn about African culture make all the difference. If you are interested in helping our club, gaining a new cultural experience and creating opportunities for young Ghanaian football players, there is no better way that donating your time and joining us on a volunteer placement. Projects Abroad offer placements starting from as little as two weeks and stretching to as long as you require. Whether you are an individual or a group, a novice coach or an expert, everyone is welcome and invited to join us on our journey.

As a volunteer you will have the chance to train with the players, take and assist coaching sessions, referee friendly matches and much, much more. Away from the pitch you will have ample opportunity to experience the vibrant markets, restaurants and nightlife of Ghana's capital city, Accra. We frequently hold club parties and meals so you will be able to socialise with staff and players while sampling the delights of local Ghanaian cooking.

Donations

While our priority is to ensure that our players receive the best possible coaching and enjoy their football, it is obviously important that there are enough funds to provide quality equipment and transport for away matches. Thankfully, Projects Abroad provide us with an annual budget to cover operating costs and equipment purchases. However, in a harsh climate like Ghana's there is always the need to replace burst footballs and ripped jerseys so any financial donations or offers of equipment are always welcome.

The easiest way to contact us and see what the club needs is to get in touch with the Projects Abroad main office via post, telephone or email:

We are proud to mention that thanks to generous donations by former volunteers, we have on occasion been able to pass excess equipment on to other Ghanaian youth clubs such as the Akuapem Hills Stars. No equipment goes to waste and if we cannot use it then we make sure we donate it to another club that can. In this way we can all work together to improve standards and create opportunities throughout Ghana.
