The Lisa Kent Trust Voluntourism Programme is a fantastic opportunity to experience life in a third world country, even if only for a short time.  Our programmes are tailor-made to deliver our participants’ expectations, to maximize your experience.

The Lisa Kent Trust ensure a hassle-free experience, from arranging your flights, accommodation, as well as food & transport in The Gambia.

Minimum age requirement for individuals is 16 years of age, unless accompanied by an associated adult.



What will I be doing?

IYour trip will comprise a blend of spending time at one or more of our schools as well as getting to know the local community. We also arrange sight-seeing trips to the forests and the coast. We will tailor the trip to your interests and skills. Do you like building? We can find a project for you! Computers? No problem! Do you have teaching, child-care or medical skills? We can find ways for you to help. Or maybe it’s just providing a pair of extra hands – whatever you can do, we can usually find a way to fit you in to a fulfilling and useful programme of activities.

How many days will I be in the Gambia?

Again, we will work around your requirements, but usually our voluntourists stay at least a week, and more often two.

Where will I stay?


What will the weather be like?

Our trips usually run in NOVEWMBER and FEBRUARY when the daytime temperatures are typically x – y deg C. Rainfall is  and humidity around. So a bit like xxx in the Spring.

How much does it cost?

We ask our voluntourists to raise £1500 from their friends and family, and this covers everything – flights, accommodation, food and programmes.
