The Gambia, also known affectionately as the Smiling Coast is one of Africa’s smallest countries and unlike many of its West African neighbours it has enjoyed long spells of stability since independence. On 18 February 1965, Gambia gained independence from the United Kingdom and joined The Commonwealth. Banjul is Gambia’s capital, but the largest conurbations are Serekunda and Brikama. Its area is almost 10,500 km² with an estimated population of 1,700,000. An agriculturally fertile country, its economy is dominated by farming, fishing, and tourism. About a third of the population lives below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.

The Tour

We are looking for volunteers to signup to our footy4change tour to The Gambia.  The tour is aimed at using the beautiful game to bring together people from different backgrounds to unite and do good.  We will be based near our partner academy in Brufut and  as an Adventure Kicks volunteer you’ll be treated like one of the family.  We will work with local charity groups to assist with community based projects.
