Previous National Volunteer Days


In the run up to National Volunteer Day 2013, 56 activities were registered which were both online and offline engagement and publicity for these activities. On September 21, 2013, there were about 40 activities with about 300 volunteers in total participating in Ghana. Their volunteer activities directly benefited a lot of people. These activities happened in Accra, Tema, Nsawam, Kasoa, Cape Coast, Takoradi, Koforidua, Saltpond, and Tamale.[citation needed]


In 2014 several activities happened in 9 out of 10 regions in Ghana. About 80 activities with about 1000 volunteers were involved in all the activities that ensued. Some Ghanaians also volunteered in the UK as part of NVDay 14. Clean up and painting exercises became more popular alongside the various kinds of activities. The volunteer weekend period was enjoyable and the impact was even bigger than the previous year.[2]
