We often have vacancies for volunteers to join our expatriate team. Our vision is to share God’s love with the Gambian people through word and deed – especially through providing good quality, holistic, medical care. We accept people for long-term and short-term positions. Long-termers plan to stay for more than 2 years. They are able to develop their knowledge of the local culture by learning one of the commonly used languages. They are able to contribute to the longer term strategy of the clinic and mission work. Short-termers typically join us for 6 months to 2 years.They relieve the long-termers so that they can take leave and spend time improving their language skills. They are able to develop relationships with the clinic staff and young people in the church who understand English. Our experience is that it takes 6 months to feels that you are really contributing to the work here. Everyone who stays for this time or less says they wished they had stayed longer. We are willing to discuss shorter visits if someone has important skills to offer us and if the timing is strategic. If you are interested in any of the vacancies listed here, then please feel free to find out more by sending us a message via the contact tab. Applications must be made through your local WEC International sending base. Please note that there is no salary associated with any of these vacancies. From time to time, we also have vacancies for Gambian nurses. Please enquire about these locally.
