One of the poorest countries in the world. Ninety five percent are Muslim. Peaceful and non-violent, Gambians model tolerance and acceptance. Spend your next summer living, learning,
and growing in The Gambia. Past students have described it as a life changing experience.
“Going to The Gambia taught me many things, but the most important thing I learned was what it means to be a person of service. From watching doctors in the emergency room to learning the importance of greetings to sharing a meal with Gambians, I learned that service to others doesn’t mean you have to change the world every day. It means giving what you can, whether that be time, rice, or a friendly greeting”. – Erin Harvey ’15
