We are a group of passionate and determined individuals who want to make a difference. We've realized that the staples of life we've taken for granted since birth are foreign to so many. Many in The Gambia lack these essentials and go to the lengths that none of us can ever imagine just to obtain ONE of these necessities. We have reflected on these realities individually and amongst ourselves and have decided its time to act. We are comprised of all non paid volunteers united by our passion to assist those who are less fortunate.
How We Began
Through various individual and collective efforts, we were all inspired by the feedback and the joy we felt when told that the recipient's of our contributions were deeply impacted by such a small act of compassion. Through these efforts, we gained confidence that these efforts can grow as an organization. As of May 2014, the wheels were put to motion and TOGETHER FOR GAMBIA was born.
Together For Gambia is a non-profit organization focused on improving the well being and giving back to the people of The Gambia. Today, nearly half of the population in The Gambia are living below the poverty line and many more struggle to have one good meal a day. We are devoted to fighting poverty particularly food poverty because hunger demoralizes the vibrant spirits of the people of The Gambia. Every human being deserves the dignity of a decent meal each day. Our goal is to serve as a bridge to give the fortunate an opportunity to lend a hand to those who are less fortunate.
