Projects of Les Amis de Gambie

Les Amis de Gambie has already provided assistance in The Gambia in a number of different areas. We are keen to continue to do so. The main projects that we are currently involved in are:

The orphanage: 

In 2005 we started building an orphanage, which opened its doors in 2009. The orphanage has become a loving and safe home for 25 children. In the meantime, eleven adolescents and young adults have left the orphanage. Six of them have been reunited with their families, four others live independently, and one is staying with a foster family.

Supervised living: 

Our experience has taught us that it can be very challenging for our young people to transition from the family network provided within the orphanage to that of independent living as they reach adulthood, which is why our NGO has been renting two apartments close by since 2022: The ‘Youth House’ and the ‘Fatou House’.

New project: 

In this section we will outline our most recent projects for which we are currently promoting through fundraising. This project will be started as soon as the necessary funds have been raised. Once completed the next project will be commissioned.

Community projects:

Projects that aim to support the local community, for example the construction of boreholes to provide clean, safe drinking water, the creation of soccer fields with stands and the distribution of food packages.
