Care & Community in Senegal

Based in the picturesque town of St Louis in northern Senegal you will have the opportunity to experience a taste of Senegalese culture and contribute to the local community.

You will live with a local host family and your days will be spent doing a variety of different activities at a centre for street children or at our summer kindergarten programme. Whichever option you work at, you will spend time with the children and will also spend some time renovating and decorating a local school or centre. With the help of your fellow volunteers you will be able to transform the building, providing a fresh and colourful environment for the children.

At the weekend you will spend time visiting the historic sites in and around St Louis. There are also social activities arranged throughout the two weeks including drum and dance lessons and a meal at a local restaurant.

In the afternoons, volunteers will work closely with the volunteers on the Building & French project.
