It finally came! We received our official invitation for The Gambia and are heading out for staging on January 4th! If you click on the 'About The Gambia' tab to the left you can read about the small, west African country we will be living in for the next 27 months.
I (Kate) will be a Forestry Volunteer and Ben will be an Agriculture and Forestry Extension Agent Volunteer. We will try our best to keep this blog updated so everyone can read about our adventures in Africa. Keep in mind we will most likely be living in a rural village with no access to electricity so our updates may be inconsistent, but we will have cell phones.
