As a volunteer in our beautiful tree nursery, you will help maintain the nursery and vast garden. Our mission is to improve livelihoods through agricultural innovation and environmental protection. This is the essence of being a tree nursery volunteer at Reforest the Future Gambia. In the Gambia, and Africa as a whole, we are facing critical periods of deforestation, and food security is a major concern for the coming decades.
Help maintain and improve our beautiful tree nursery site. We aim to set an example of reforestation in practice for the whole of Gambia.
Despite being the smallest country in Africa, the Gambia has a lot to offer. You can explore various activities during your free time:
Leave the experience feeling accomplished!
This trip is suitable for families with kids older than 5 years. We have very positive experiences with families coming for this type of travel. The kids were the ones who enjoyed the most.
The volunteering experience in the field can be quite exhaustive due to the heat and a smaller amount of physical work. You will however have more than enough time to recover your strength.
Pack everything you need for your basic needs. We recommend having a Gambian SIM number, as accessibility to the internet is sometimes a problem. We also recommend bringing a power bank. Make sure you pack mosquito repellents, trekking covered shoes and comfortable wear.
Reforest the Future was founded in 2011 with the aim of tackling land degradation, food insecurity and poverty In The Gambia by planting trees and educating women, land-workers and young people. Founded by Isatou Ceesay - Environmentalist activist and Queen of Recycling!
We do believe it's time for another adventure. Don't spend all of your time in The Gambia in one place. Go out and explore! There are so many beautiful experiences waiting for you. Let us help you pick one - and take care of all the rest.
