There are more than 75 Volunteers in The Gambia working with their communities on projects in agriculture, education, and health.

More than 1,800 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in The Gambia since the program was established in 1967.

While my service as a Peace Corps Volunteer has ended, I know that I will never forget the experiences that I had or the people I met in The Gambia. My three years in West Africa have greatly shaped me as a person and I hope to return to live and work in Africa again.
