The Global Gap programme is designed for gap year students taking a year off before going into higher education. The programme consists of a one week orientation and three week Care programme in Ghana, followed by one-to-two month programmes in each of South Africa, Peru, Nepal and Thailand.

In each of these countries, volunteers will work closely with our local staff members on projects that lend insight into important issues in developing countries like housing, education, environmental conservation and human rights.
