A TASTE OF THE GAMBIA/VOLUNTEER TRIPS
Would you like a holiday with a difference? Fed up of the normal package trip?
Then why not try something different?
We are offering a unique trip to the Gambia where you can experience life in a third world country and experience the culture and way of life of the Gambians.
You will stay in good quality accommodation away from the tourist area and be able to mix with the local community. You will have the expertees of an experienced guide as well as the opportunity to join in with some of the following:
- cookery workshops – where you will be able to go to the local market to purchase the items needed.
- bird watching, wildlife, boat trips, local markets, craft markets
- meal in a local compound
- visit our schools and see the children and difference between a UK school
Each trip is tailor made to suit the individuals.
Price are from £1,500 (flights excluded), trips are from 1 week upwards.
All transport in the Gambia, trips and some meals are provided.
Each trip the Trust runs brings people offering very different skills. Recently a young student nurse experienced a very different approach to nursing by working in a local clinic. Day 3 resulted in her delivering a baby!! A fantastic experience but also resulting in a great bond being formed between the Gambian and the Lisa Kent Trust.
A hearing and language therapist also experienced time in our schools. Many children had their ears checked, resulting in quite a few being diagnosed with problems and therefore enabling the problems to be dealt with so the children did not fall behind in class due to lack of hearing. Other volunteers worked in small groups with children struggling, thus helping them to catch up.
