Gambia Volunteers  delegates attended the  25th IAVE’S World Volunteer Conference  in Augsburg, Germany 16th – 20th October 2018.  

The conference theme – Our Responsibility for the Global Future – highlights the collaboration that we believe will bring solutions to the global challenges we face. We see volunteering as a unifying force that enables us to pull together resources and commit the time and effort to bring about positive change in our communities.


Volunteering brings benefits to both society at large and the individual volunteer. It makes important contributions, economically as well as socially and contributes to a more cohesive society by building trust and reciprocity among citizens.
