We were taken on visits to both of the schools, during the Easter Holidays, and were very touched that not only had the children and teachers come in especially to welcome us, but that a large number of parents were there too. This indicated to us the importance of the work of this charity, not only to the children, but to the whole village. They look upon it as their hope for a better future for the whole community. We were lucky enough to meet Sandy who directs the work in the Gambia, Paul, a UK-based Trustee, and Sandy's Gambian helpers. All were totally committed to the task which they have set themselves. Sandy was particularly keen to ensure transparency of the charity's operation. Because this is a small organisation with low overheads, you can be sure that every donation goes to its intended purpose of helping these needy people.
