Acceptance letters for volunteers joining in Senegal are starting to go out, so we've updated the Volunteer Guidebook to include the relevant travel information for our time in Senegal. 

You can download a copy of the volunteer guidebook by clicking here and the Senegal guidebook by clicking here.

Flights listed below are the approved flights we can accommodate within our curfew hours for pick-ups and drop-offs. Flights purchased not matching those listed below may need to be re-booked at your own expense.

Dental team - please note you should not arrive in Senegal later than 9 pm, as you have farther to travel to the team house off-ship than those going directly to the ship.
