What will your experience be like?
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. Someone will “attack” you that you only need to volunteer in your local community or country, 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.
Trust us, your experience will be just as unique as you are.
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.
