Project Gambia UK Clothing Shop
In December 2016, the first Project Gambia Shop was set up in the Latrikunda area of The Gambia. Managed by Florence Bernard, the shop employs a local woman and sells good quality, second-hand clothes, shoes, bags etc. Items are sold at much more affordable prices in comparison to the local markets. Once wages and rent are paid, the profit is ploughed into the projects we run in The Gambia, and specifically targeted to those who are in urgent need of food, medical care, schooling etc.
The shop currently pays for the education of 10 children Half Dye’s school. Without this funding these children would not be able to attend school.
Profits from the shop are also going to be used to establish a sewing school where young people will be taught how to sew in order to earn a living. More information about this can be found in our latest projects section.
You can help us get more children to school by donating any new or used adult, children and baby clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, towels and other household items.
