VOLUNTEER TYPES

While searching to volunteer abroad you surely found a lot of organizations and agencies where you can choose between many different community development and conservation projects in countries from all over the world. Well, our projects are not spread worldwide. We are offering programs in which we are personally involved. We believe that this is the only way to progress. As a Gambian owned humanitarian organization, we want to be a part of the responsible travel, community growth and  global change.

We offer a treasure trove of verified first-hand information and we are proud of that. All the programs were created based on years of experience with volunteer work and living abroad. That fact that we are living in the country makes us even more different to ordinary travel providers. We work direct with local communities, women associations and locally driven initiatives. We support and assist to achieve goals by promoting traveling experience, knowledge exchange, valuable funding, sustaining local business, reducing social problems and improving environmental concern. We share experience and knowledge with all who want to travel with us and we really make an effort to get you to spend your holiday with a special purpose.

Our programs suit all ages and every type of vacation, whether it is a summer vacation for the entire family, an adventurous and active trip for students and young people, long winter holidays for retirees, a romantic getaway for honeymooners or a educational group volunteering experience.

It is simply different. It cannot compare with classic or adventurous journeys, it is a combination of both, and gives you more than you could possibly imagine. So if you are thinking about a short or long holidays, want to visit a new destination, meet people, know their culture and traditions, experience something new and give back on your journey then “Travel as a volunteer” to The Gambia is the best choice!

The idea of the program “Travel as a volunteer” developed from the charity project “sponsor a child” which Charity Pearl Organization started in 2011. Their aim is to invite the sponsors to visit and get to know the children they are helping in The Gambia. Beside helping financially, the country welcomes volunteers as well. Therefore we are creating opportunities for volunteers from all over the world to come and join our mission in The Gambia. If you are looking for an outstanding experience in Africa and you want to make your dreams come true then you need look no further.

We do not want international volunteers to take on jobs meant for local teachers, we only wish to relieve them of some of the gruelling hours that they spend in a full classroom, to exchange knowledge and discuss long-term solutions for the future. In addition, we want to get the people acquainted with the actual situation in The Gambia, so that they could help in their own way even after they return home. The number of applications for volunteers is limited, as a large number of volunteer does not mean an easier way of solving the problems. We strive towards doing the best possible job that we can, to make a change and to get visible results.

You can volunteer in The Gambia all year around. The only time we do not offer volunteering opportunities is August. Schools are closed from mid July until October but we work individually with children 11 months per year. For 2 years now, there are summer camps organized by Charity Pearl so, if summer is the only time you can come, just contact us and we will give you further details.

Travel as a Volunteer is a program that offers travelers a completely different experience; you do not only see the country, but you can also share your knowledge and experiences, and combine all that with the pleasant company of the locals that they get to meet. Gambia has beautiful people, the sun, the seaside, nature and animals. You will experience the country through the eyes of the locals.
