This incredibly rewarding project looks to provide invaluable volunteer support to understaffed schools in The Gambia.

This project is crucial to those schools in deprived areas that are under resourced and overcrowded. The project aims to increase the standard of education and literacy within the local area.



Your work schedule will be challenging and varied, but always enjoyable, as you embark on your placement in a local community or government school. You will engage fully with your pupils, using your creativity and initiative to deliver a stimulating teaching programme.

You will benefit in terms of your personal and professional experience and will be encouraged to formulate ideas and develop your teaching skills and techniques. Working either with a local teacher or independently, you could be directly involved with marking pupils' work, preparing homework and assembling innovative and effective lesson plans.

There are a range of extracurricular activities you could organise, depending on your personal skills and interests – whether it is coaching a sports team, planning a school play, organising a choir, or conducting one to one tuition for children who are struggling. Just use your initiative and get the kids involved! Whatever you decide, you are sure to gain huge satisfaction from inspiring these underprivileged children, whilst enhancing your own skills and experience significantly.

Your detailed work programme will be agreed with your volunteer coordinator upon arrival.
