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!
Benin LIFE trips
In some parts of the world, safe and clean drinking water is still not available to many, resulting in illnesses that robs them of health, dignity and opportunity to live a normal life.
We have an opportunity to help break this cycle of brokenness and help improve the lives of these people.
A Benin LIFE trip is to experience our work firsthand by going with the GAiN Benin team to set up a deep capped well and ensure fresh, clean water for the surrounding village.

Agapé UK Student Romania Project
Every year GAiN UK runs a 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 2023, a team of staff and students will go 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.
