Here at Real Gap Experience we supply the projects with what they need the most, helping hands - and our dedicated volunteers spend their time adapting to the needs of the community. You may only be one person, but by volunteering with us you'll make up part of our global support network, and by ensuring the constant flow of volunteers we can provide a beneficial experience for both the community and the volunteer.
