hello, Nice to meet you
As Trustees (and many of you reading this), all of us have something in common; we have 'enough'. Enough education to make our own way in the world. Enough access to health care professionals, medicines and hospitals should we need them. Enough clean water and food. Enough housing to ensure we are safe and warm. Enough power to share a political opinion and vote. Enough people around us who would do us a favour if we needed one. Enough opportunties in short, to lead a life of choice. A choice that is not given to everyone and that's why we are Trustees of Project Gambia; working to make sure that more opportunities are provided early on in the lives of the children who live in Gunjur, The Gambia, West Africa.
We meet regularly to strategically plan our activities, monitor finances, define future opportunities, plan fund raising events and update our communication with the Preschools and with our supporters. Unsurprisingly, we find that making decisions together, us and the Preschools, using all available information provides the best route for our collective intentions and aspirations.
