In addition to GHEI's team of local management and staff, GHEI employs three positions that are based in Humjibre, Ghana: Health Program Coordinator, Education Program Coordinator, and Communications Officer. Responsibilities range from project monitoring and evaluation to local capacity building. Additionally, coordinators oversee groups of short-term volunteers through our Summer Serve & Learn programs who work on specific interventions designed to complement GHEI's ongoing projects. The coordinators serve a term of 13-24 months, with preference given to applicants who can commit to 24 months. This term includes a one-month overlap period with the outgoing Program Coordinator to allow for training. GHEI provides free housing and utilities in addition to a local stipend during the coordinator's term.
At GHEI we envision a future where children—free from illness and illiteracy—can realize their full potential, a future where healthy, educated young people will lead their communities out of poverty. Our evidence-based health and education programs work hand-in-hand to achieve this vision. Whether preventing childhood illness or promoting learning success, we are committed to finding the most innovative solutions to the health and education needs of our communities, even if it requires challenging established limits.
