UK based charity Afrikaya is a force to be reckoned with, seeing a need for the youth of the Gambia to grow, nurture and succeed through education – they are doing something about it!! Afrikaya’s aim is to provide nursery education for disadvantaged children, a medical centre and an education facility to provide adults with practical skills for employment. This project is in New Yundum and it has the full support of the local community.
Much has been done already, but there is a long way to go yet before the centre can open its doors. So far the generosity from those both in the Gambia and the UK has helped towards the exciting first stages of this project. But we still have a significant fundraising challenge before we can literally raise the roof of this building so that the real work can begin…
“EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL TO END POVERTY”
Afrikaya is asking for industry within the Gambia, the more privileged among us, to help “Make That Difference”!!! Whether it is through donations, your time, your expertise, we want to hear from you.
It’s true there are many charities within our country who have a “project” one year and are gone the next, but Afrikaya is striving for longevity and sustainability … here in our wonderful country for our FUTURE and For Generations!
BE PART OF THE VISION!!
