What practical items should I pack?

We recommend that you devise a list so that you can cross reference and ensure that all everything that is important to you is not forgotten. However if that does happen Ghana has many Pharmacies, supermarkets and places where most things can be purchased.

  •  A book and information about Ghana
  •  We recommend Camera
  • Unlocked Mobile phone (you can use mobile phone after changing SIM card) In orientation week we take you to a local telecommunications company where you can purchase an active SIM card.
  • Mosquito repellent
  • Insect repellent
  • Sun block (SPF)
  • Toiletries
  • First aid kit to include: pain killers, Imodium, alcohol gels, antiseptic creams etc....
  • Flash light
  • Electricity adopter/converter
  • Footwear (for work and travel)
