2019 / 2020 PROJECTS

Through our 'Dress Me, Feed Me and Educate Me' campaign and back to school hair looks, in collaboration with the NPAC we successfully filled a 40 feet container within the space of three months for the schools and clinic we are supporting. These projects are still ongoing and your support and collaboration is invaluable. We are currently working closely with Karamo Cessay councillor of South Talinding ward together with his ward development committee to provide support for his community centre, clinic and the local police and fire services. These efforts are additionally supported by the Lord of Kanifing Municipality, Mr Talib Bensouda.

We are particularly pleased, because in a recent visit we have announced and introduced a new project called the 'Cinderella Project', with the aims of providing skill training and development opportunities for the women and young girls within the community to identify entrepreneurial skills desires. This will allow them to become independent, develop commercial opportunities and generate income to support themselves and their families.

This project is to be launched in March 2021 and we welcome college and university students studying fashion and design to join us for an internship and experience the unique Gambian culture on the west coast of Africa.

    To generate financial sponsorships for the design, engineering and construction of Gambia's first environmental waste management to energy plant to solve the increasing hazard of the current open dump site of municipal, clinical and commercial waste.

    This is a fully commercial opportunity for long-term electricity tariff agreements, and a major step towards Gambia's energy self-sufficiency.

  6. c

    Project objectives:

    To support Nyoro community to construct a new build multi-purpose outreach clinic by providing them with construction training, building materials and an education programme for the maintenance and further development.

    The project requires both financial and “hands-on” support. This is an opportunity for medium to larger companies to expand their existing or new apprenticeship programmes with a multi-cultural bias.

  7. Mingdaw School Pupil's Project

  8. d

    Project objectives:

    To source and provide the educational and practical equipment to increase and expand the pupil's knowledge of food, nutrition and home science management.

    This project is material and financial donation dependant, and ideally volunteers in domestic and professional experience.

  9. Makka Ali Sar Madrassa Basic Health Programme

  10. e

    Project objectives:

    The project objectives are to promote education of personal hygiene by providing the children with basic living comforts.

    For example: bedsheets, mattresses, soaps, towels, clothes and shoes. This is a residential boarding school for children from very poor rural families unable to provide even the most basics health needs for their children.

    ***This boarding school had a trachoma outbreak in April 2015 and the investigative report discovered the cause of the outbreak was due to poor personal hygiene amongst the pupil at the madrassa and as a charitable foundation we want to support the school to prevent similar outbreaks in the future***
