Why choose The Gambia for your school or college trip?
The Gambia is a fascinating country that is sure to inspire and educate students in a multitude of ways. There are many aspects of the school curriculum that resonate with the culture and ways of life in The Gambia. The country boasts beautiful African art, alongside fascinating religious culture with special places of worship and religious practice.
Students will be able to understand the impacts of climate change on the country's seasons and environment, with a focus on the coast, fishing, weather and water. With tourism being one of The Gambia's main industries, it is a great insight for students to be able to understand how sustainable development is occurring in the country.
Students can witness family life and compare their homes to that of a typical residential area in The Gambia and they will have the opportunity to meet and converse with locals and visit a local school. The contrasts between food, lifestyles, wants and needs are fascinating, with issues around poverty and the developing world playing an important part in understanding these cultures.
