So you want to make a difference

Volunteering with First Aid 4 Gambia is an ideal way to be a responsible tourist whilst you enjoy the winter sun, beaches, exploring the fascinating culture, history and landscape of The Gambia. Volunteering in The Gambia will help you understand the African continent and the problems facing its population on a far more intimate level. Plus, you do not need any special qualifications, but you could join one of First Aid 4 Gambia’s First Aid at Work courses prior to your visit. All we ask is that you have bags of energy and enthusiasm, an open mind and a camera to capture all those special Gambian travel moments!

Volunteers can join our outreach team between November and the end of march for one to four weeks. Cheap package flights are available from Manchester and London direct to The Gambia. You will be met at the Airport and driven to the charity’s accommodation in The Gambia where you will spend your volunteering vacation. Your accommodation, breakfast, and transport to and from the airport will be supplied by the charity in return for a donation of £125 per week which is used to support the charity’s ongoing first aid work in The Gambia. A packed lunch is provided on outreach workdays.

Your week/s is split between the charity’s work and your personal holiday time. We are very flexible on the amount of time you wish to commit to First Aid 4 Gambia, and this can be discussed when you enquire. Contact us for further details and availability.

Please note that we have stringent child protection policies that must be adhered to and we would require 2 referee’s and a PVG/DBS check which will be provided free of charge.
