Gap Year in Gambia

A peanut-based economy and a roaring sex trade make headlines for Gambia all over the world. Look past the controversy to see genuinely friendly people, incredible natural diversity, and lots of voluntary opportunities. Pack up and head out on one of these voluntary projects. And, when you’ve finished doing good things, rent a £10-a-night beach shack and lap up some African sunshine.

What can you do on a gap year in The Gambia? There are literally hundreds of international projects throughout this small country: you can help young children to learn English, support a mobile medical clinic, or build a new community centre from mud-bricks.
