Under Construction

AHEAD is not all work and no play– we have continued our work in Tanzania and The Gambia for decades while also having fun! Our past volunteer trips have included: shopping trips to local markets for African artwork, jewelry, sculptures, and clothing; safaris with giraffes, lions, zebras, and elephants; historical tours of Stone Town on Zanzibar; the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean and Lake Victoria; eating and drinking local delicacies in high-end restaurants or street food; and shows with traditional singing and dancing. There are many ways to experience the warm welcomes of traditional African hospitality. AHEAD volunteers from abroad learn about and experience local cultures and traditions from AHEAD African volunteers, facilitating cultural exchanges that are respectful and authentic.
