What we do
The aim of our charity is to help orphaned children in Gambia to achieve better future perspectives. We want to improve the living conditions of children, teenagers and young adults. In the short term we especially want to secure their regular attendance of a school. Long term we try to help orphaned children to get proper professional training. In Gambia we work closely with both German and Gambian helpers. We directly support orphans and their foster families by paying for school fees, food and clothing. The close-knit cooperation of German and Gambian helpers offers on the one hand transparency in how the donations are spent and on the other hand allows to personally observe the development of the children.
