The experience of a lifetime

We are always on the look out for enthusiastic, dynamic people who have an interest in development and would like some practical experience- but be warned, you must be prepared to work hard and looking for an adventure because West Africa will probably be very different to anywhere you have been before!


You must commit for 12 months and will need to have enough savings to fund your airfare, health insurance, vaccinations and visa; many volunteers find the best way to raise funds for their trip is through holding fundraising events beforehand. 


Once you are there both accommodation and a modest living allowance are provided.



Here are some pics of past volunteers and Project Managers at AWSHS...
