Suppose you have ever considered going to your chosen destination and volunteering there or maybe “reinforcing” your studies with knowledge abroad. In that case, we invite you to join our program in The Gambia.
Travel as a Volunteer program was established with the aim of creating opportunities for volunteer work without special restrictions. Therefore, the program favours diversity and is the best opportunity for volunteers of different age groups, areas of interest, and nationalities.
Whether you are a high school or a college student, employed, unemployed or a retired worker, travelling alone, with your partner or a family – we have something for everyone.
Are you worried you have no prior experience or specific knowledge? Don't be. The majority of our programs do not require special qualifications, except for knowledge of the English language and willingness to work under sustainable and responsible rules of our organization.
You can work individually or opt for a program led by our coordinators and locals. When choosing a program that fits your needs, you can also adapt the duration of your trip and the type of accommodation.
Now, how to begin, you ask? First, choose the date and area you would like to work in and then send an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just like you are.
As you get closer to the idea of travel and volunteering in The Gambia, you will be able to come across different opinions about this type of travel.
According to some, this is a modern way of tourism, and others see this as the best possible way to connect with the locals and do something good for themselves and this world on their journey. Some will direct you that you only should volunteer in your local community or country, while others will encourage you that humanitarianism has no boundaries. Some admire our work; some criticize it.
More than others' opinions, both positive and negative, your “intention” and your view of the world is important for such a journey and experience.
If you can always find good things in people and situations, then Travel as a Volunteer will be an unforgettable experience, a “game-changer” in your life, inspiration for work and life and a beneficial journey for you.
If you are a “seeker” of bad things, believe us, you can find them in every situation, country, organization, and person.
It is essential that we all look at life through our eyes, experiences, and frustrations, and we all carry the suitcase of the past with us. Therefore, let’s be good, look for qualities in people, show understanding and support each other, because that way, the world is more beautiful for all of us.
