Group Volunteering holidays in The Gambia
Working with groups is our speciality! Our accommodation and organisation is tried and tested and can be tailored to any group.
We will work with you to identify the kind of projects you’d like to work on. This could be peer education, physical work, sport, environmental or conservation work, or even a mixture of these. Our local knowledge combined with the skills you know you can bring will mean you can develop an itinerary to suit your group. You can also build in social and cultural activities to balance alongside your community work. For group planning questionnaire click here
Group leaders can feel comfortable that there are risk assessments available, on-site security, local knowledge and guides – all there to help make the task of leading a trip like this as smooth as possible. Your trip will be fully catered and the level of accommodation is good for a developing country like The Gambia.
