REMEMBER

All the information shown in this section changes every season.  

We are a young and dynamic Charity in a constant process of transformation towards better results.

 

We always look to offer our team of volunteers opportunities that in addition to providing them with a distinctive value, also imply actions that perfectly fit the real necessities of the project in The Gambia.

EXPEDITION

2020

Two turns organised based on space availability and project needs.

 

We like things crystal clear.

This is the expedition to The Gambia:

HARD WORK

Every day we have one goal: make this project today better than yesterday. This is accomplished with effort.

EXTREME CONDITIONS

Keep in mind that we live in a small village in The Gambia. We don't have electricity or running water. Add 30ºC, humidity and insects.

PHYSICAL CHALLENGE

 

Constant fatigue is what you will often feel. Your body won't work there the same as here.

MENTAL CHALLENGE

In the most complicated situations is where the real essence of a person shows up.

What the expedtion is not.

Even more clear.

HOLIDAYS

We meet strict working schedules, we work with specific purposes and free time is very limited in our daily life. (Don't worry, we still have some free days.)

BECOMING AN INFLUENCER

We take this very seriously. We don't go there to take pictures with children. We go to work. If you wouldn't be able to go without your camera, best give it a second thought.

HEALING MY CONSCIENCE

 

It's not the best place for it. A good piece of advice is that you try to come the most emotionally stable possible. The more mentally healthy, the more you will enjoy and contribute.

SAVING THE WORLD

You are not going to change the planet with 3 weeks of voluntary work and this we have to assume. But you will allow at least 150 children to transform their lives and we will get closer to that worldwide change.
