About the process
Who will handle the operation in The Gambia?
We have a 3 member team in The Gambia made up of independent, non related individuals volunteering to oversee the operation.
How will the items be distributed?
We will randomly pick a location every month to deliver items. A package comprising rice, sugar and oil will be given at random all individuals present.
How do you ensure accountability in The Gambia?
Each step of the distribution transaction is recorded and a report is generated every month. We require at least 2 of our 3 member team to sign for each transaction (i.e. receive money, buy items). Therefore, we have a situation where no one individual makes a decision or executes without oversight
