Do something that will be a blessing for generations to come. Come to Senegal to help to plant trees across Africa and sow some other seeds whilst you are there.
It all begins with a four-day orientation camp near Dakar, with international and local African speakers, helping you get your heart clean and your hands dirty. Then teams will head up north for one week of planting trees in Africa’s “Great Green Wall” . You’ll eat native food, work hard and maybe even learn a few words of Wolof as you share your life and your sweat with other Africans. During a second week, you will be partnering with local charitable organizations, working with street children, manning a health clinic, visiting villagers hut-to-hut with YWAM, or doing children´s camp and Sunday school programs with local churches, perhaps travelling to a neighboring country such as Mali or The Gambia. Are you ready?
