In whatever ways, you are moved to partner with us, GAFYAL is always looking for energetic, passionate, cooperative and dedicated people from all corners of the world who are willing to give back to their community either with a donation or short-term (1-3 months) & long–term (6 months-1 year) volunteer commitments respectively. We, welcome volunteers to assist us.

BEING A VOLUNTEER CAN MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS

The definition of a ‘volunteer’ working overseas in development or mission can be very unclear; A volunteer could be someone who:
Works for an organization without a salary or payment of any kind and the volunteer finances, recruitment, preparation, travel, insurance, support, accommodation and food all from their own pocket. You will be required to make payments in order to enable us to secure your preparation, i.e. Logistic costs, which includes accommodation, airport pick -up and administrative cost. On your return to your home country, your placement adviser will arrange a debriefing interview with you attended by the placement adviser and one other member of the Global Aid Foundation team. This is your chance to give feedback on your experience of the placement and your evaluation of the program supported by the Global Aid Foundation. We are always anxious to learn how best to support you and the placement provider.

Vacation with a Purpose

For a life changing and rewarding experience, choose a vacation with a purpose and volunteer with The Global Aid Foundation for Youths & Less-privileged.
Volunteers can participate in:
  • Feeding program
  • Vocational Training
  • Leadership training
  • School power clubs
  • Community service
Work is very rewarding but can be very hard at times. The decision to volunteer should not be made lightly. The Gambia is a tiny and  lovely country and we encourage you to take the time on vacations to enjoy all that Gambia has to offer.
