West Africa


World Horizons works in West Africa through many different projects and ministries.

We aim to bless the local community and make disciples through the work. Our teams are also working with local Christians in an indigenous mission movement to the more northern areas of West Africa, where the gospel has never been heard.

There are opportunities to go with Hillside or World Horizons to work with teams in a couple different countries. Both teams have recently had to move to capital cities due to the increased danger of more rural areas. This is an exciting time to join these teams, short-term or longer, as they pioneer into new communities and are re-envisioned for the future. In Burkina Faso there are opportunities to work with the local church, as well as a developing dental ministry. In other areas, we’re looking for people to get involved with church planting, a football academy and schools work.

Speaking French really helps to make friends and have a greater impact, but there are also activities for those with little of the language.
