You want to support us financially?

That makes us very happy, since we rely on donations to be able to finance our help for the children and their foster families in the Gambia. We are thankful for any donation, be it small or, even better, larger amounts. Every Euro we receive as donation can achieve great things in the Gambia!

With the donations we
– Finance school fees, in order to allow the children to go to good schools
– Pay for training to enable the children to obtain a profession
– Buy bicycles to simplify the transport to schools or training places
– Pay rent and electricity costs for the foster families
– Pay for clothing

€10 pays for shoes and school books. €15 can buy a bag of rice or sugar for 1 month. For €30 we can buy a bicycle for the transport to school. €50 pays for a trimester in a secondary school, the whole year costs €150.

Our support is geared towards the concrete needs of the children and their families. Through close cooperation with our Gambian club members and helpers we know exactly what is needed and can thus spend the donations as expedient as possible.

It is very important to us that the greatest part of the donations is spent on helping the children and their foster families. Obviously we too have administrative costs as an association but they are very low since we all work completely unpaid. We only pay for essentially necessary things to keep the administration and the work of the charity running so that the biggest part of the monies can be spent on the financial support of the children.
