Gambia Deployment

Would you like to deliver aid to orphans and widows in person?

Now is your chance! Join Orphans in Need and travel with us to The Gambia for a challenging and rewarding opportunity and give back to vulnerable orphans and widows in person.

Distribute thousands of life-saving food parcels to the needy, visit them in schools, help to cook nutritious meals, and participate in fun activities with our amazing children.

Working on the ground will provide you with the unique opportunity to make a direct impact that alleviates the suffering of orphaned children and widowed mothers.

Together, we can save lives.

Nearly half of all Gambians live below the poverty line, and over 17.5% of children suffer stunted growth and malnourishment.

Working as part of the Orphans in Need family, you will gain an intimate understanding of the struggles orphans and widows are facing in The Gambia and make a real difference in their lives.

Limited spaces are available. Don’t miss out!

After registration, an Orphans in Need team member will be in touch with all the details in a wonderful information pack.  

Our team will make your fundraising page and give you tips on how to raise the funds. Your £3500 will be used towards Food Parcels. 1 Food Parcel is £35 which feeds a family of 5. This means you will be providing 100 parcels.  

In July, the average temperature in Gambia is humid and warm, with average temperatures of 28°C, reaching highs of 31°C in the afternoon. The UV levels are high so you’ll need to regularly drink plenty of water and apply sun cream. 

Clothes that are comfortable and loose fitting, preferably cotton or linen. We provide hats for protection against the strong midday sun and we ask you to wear comfortable shoes, such as trainers during field work.
