Volunteering for WAYout gave me an opportunity to develop creative skills I didn’t really know I had and find enormous joy in helping others discover and develop their creative potential.”

Volunteering not only supports the people in Sierra Leone who you work with but offers you the opportunity to expand your own knowledge,  build a portfolio or enhance your CV and gain experiences that you will never forget. It works both ways. Many of our volunteers go back again and we are very grateful to all of them.


”Thank you for setting me up volunteering, it really was a fantastic experience.  I would have never felt comfortable traveling to a country like Sierra Leone without the help that WAYout provided.”Brian Mcandrew, USA, who is now in his fourth visit.

Volunteering  in Sierra Leone gave me a real chance to change people lives. It was truly an amazing experience, the people I worked with were fantastic.
