Update on Our Latest Effort

Since our March 2018 trip to The Gambia (our twelfth trip) and the decisions to maintain the library we started in Nema Kunku in 2004, to assist a group in Soma to redevelop their library, and to start a new one in Bakindik, we have received more than 350 new books. We sent the books to The Gambia in July 2018. We still need to buy some basic materials for the libraries such as shelving.

Also, the groups in Nema Kunku and Bakindik received new barrels of clothing for resale in July 2018. They use the funds to support their projects. We hope to send each group one more barrel before 2018 ends.

We also got trailblazing women’s advocate Jonsaba Jaiteh settled in her own apartment. And, we are now seeking donations for the 18 K-12 children whose education we sponsor.

To contribute children and young-adult clothing (especially children), gym shoes, cell phones, and laptops/tablets for our barrel program, email us now or click the Donate button to make a financial donation today.
