Overseas projects are a great way to give some of your time to help others, make relationships with new people and learn more about the work of GAiN around the world. There are short term projects running throughout the year and you can join individually or as a group. Projects are sometimes run in English by other GAiN offices around the world. So you can expect to join an interesting and diverse group of people!
GAiN is working with local partners who are providing help to refugees in Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina who have fled their homelands. You will spend a week or two helping our local partner at a refugee camp. You could be distributing food, helping to accommodate new arrivals and manning the entry points for the secure sections of the camp.
We have regular teams going from the UK office with additional teams going from our Dutch office throughout the year.

Agapé UK Student Romania Project
Every year GAiN UK runs a student project in partnership with Agapé UK. Previous projects have been to support our local partners at a Haiti orphanage, with the Roma community in Romania and refugee camps in Greece.
This Easter 2022, a team of staff and students are going to Cluj-Napoca in Romania to help our partner on the ground with their work amongst the Roma community living in the rubbish dumps. This will be a great opportunity for the students to develop practical skills, make relationships and experience different cultures.
Disaster Assistance Response Team
GAiN has an international database of people trained and ready to respond to disaster situations around the world. In the event of a disaster situation, depending on the circumstances, GAiN will send a team to the area to assist one of our local partners in aid distribution, logistics and construction.
When it is possible, we may work with the local partner on a long term basis to provide support for several years after the disaster. You could be trained to respond as part of future teams.
