WHY YOU SHOULDN’T BE AFRAID OF VOLUNTEERING AND TRAVELING TO THE GAMBIA
According to the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Africa is one of the fastest growing tourism regions of the last decade! Yet, despite this rapid growth of visitors, Africa is still last on the list of popular destinations for general tourists, and it is still common to hear travelers say that they are nervous to visit this vast and mysterious continent. Yet for those interested in international service projects, volunteering in Africa presents a million and one opportunities to volunteer abroad.
Lingering stereotypes and exaggerated news stories can make a volunteer trip to Africa seem daunting – even scary. Don’t judge all the African countries based on journalists who are often focusing on reporting only about the problems in Africa. The truth is that MANY positive stories never reach general public.
The Gambia is just one of many countries on the African continent, and it is different than many African countries. It is a small, quiet, affordable land of smiling people, where many travelers feel like at home. The wonderful nature, wildlife, rich culture and traditions, interesting but painful history, colorful villages and above all friendly, hospitable people who are always willing to help. It offers unique experience that might change your life forever!
