Join People & Places as a volunteer in The Gambia. Volunteers can participate in two types of projects with communities in The Gambia.
Interested in child care and education? People and Places works with a respected Gambian expert, Lisong Bah, in early childhood education. Volunteers may work in her model nursery school, working alongside local people to share good practice, or in other local nursery or primary schools, or help her in training programs for local teachers. The Gambian government has identified ECD as a priority and is committed to providing pre-school places to all Gambian children. A meaningful and accredited ECD programme has been developed, however Early Childhood Development professionals are practically non-existent in The Gambia and this project seeks to strengthen this initiative with skilled volunteers.
