In 2009, Alternative Training, School of Homeopathy UK granted the Ghana Homeopathy Project 2 bursaries for Ghanaian students, Now Howa and Eben in Accra are studying homeopathy. They attend our clinics as part of their clinical training and help us with translating.
A report by Angie Metzger – team member and volunteer
Akwaaba! what I warm welcome I received on my return to Ghana this summer.
I arrived in Accra laden with remedies, homeopathic creams and books, kindly donated by members of the homeopathic community. Our clinics in Accra and in Mafi Seva are now well stocked with the basics.

Can You Help?
We urgently need more funding to support our rapidly expanding work. A standing order of just £5 a month can provide ongoing homeopathic treatment for a family of five. This in turn can mean lives saved, children thriving and people back to work. Contact us for standing order and bank details. Download a standing order form here: [wpdm_file id=2]
Please get in touch if you would like to help in any way. Donations of homeopathic books, equipment and remedies are welcomed.
Are you an experienced homeopath? Volunteer your time! Volunteers experienced in homeopathy, teaching and supervision are needed to help for longer or shorter periods in Ghana.
By Sheila Ryan, Seva Coordinator
A big thank-you to everyone for your donations to the Ghana Homeopathy Project. In Seva this means we were able to provide a motorbike for the clinic. Emperor and the team can now easily visit the 25 surrounding villages to see patients. Before this, the old truck would break down daily on roads either washed away by the rains or else hard baked into ruts and pits. Fuel costs are down too!

As I write this on a sunny autumn afternoon in south London, listening to the radio at the end of another week of financial doom and gloom, I am reminded of how lucky we are in the west.

A Worthwhile Experience
• Make a real difference by helping people in Ghana with homeopathy
• Visit our outreach clinics in Accra and Kumasi, as well as in rural areas of Ghana
• Gain hands-on experience in treating both acute and chronic conditions
• Meet local people and experience the Ghanaian way of life
• Enjoy sight-seeing – or just a day at the beach
We offer supervision to students or newly qualified practitioners. More experienced practitioners will also be invited to help with clinical training and the continuing professional development of Ghanaian homeopaths.
As the Ghana Homeopathy Project is a small charity relying on donations, we seek to cover our costs by asking volunteers to pay a contributory fee for participation in the programme. Previous volunteers have commented that they felt enriched and inspired by their experience, on a professional and personal level. Placements can be arranged for the duration of two weeks or more and the project will also continue to need long-term volunteers. The GHP team will be offering recruitment and induction sessions in the course of the year.
Calling experienced homeopaths for long term volunteering!
We are especially seeking experienced homeopaths who can stay for longer periods and offer guidance and supervision to our homeopathic students in Ghana as well as supporting our less experienced volunteers.
If you would like to find out more, please contact Angelika Metzger or Linda Shannon for a preliminary chat. See the contacts page on this website. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Here in Ghana, where the sun is so strong and reliable, we continue to work towards helping people with homeopathy in an environment that is not nearly as reliable as Mother Nature. Everyday provides new challenges in one way or another; some days there is no running water, others there is no electricity for hours at a time. What does seem to be consistent, however, is the positive feedback from the patients that we are seeing in the clinic.
