ActionAid has been working in The Gambia since 1979. We focus on the rights and needs of the poorest people, including health, education, clean water and a decent living.
ActionAid works with poor people in over 40 countries across the world. Our goal is to end poverty. We believe in doing things differently. We know that with the right opportunities, poor people will find their own solutions – and build new lives.
The Gambia doesn’t have enough doctors or medical facilities, so we train local people to give medical help. We also provide training, equipment and funding for mobile health teams.
We train teachers and provide equipment for primary schools. Importantly, we make sure local communities are involved in decisions around the national education system. We also run a literacy program , Reflect, for adults
We train families to improve their farming techniques and find new opportunities for earning an income. We also give people a chance to start their own businesses by supporting schemes that provide affordable loans.
Let us start by letting women own land wherever they are in this country and they will feed this nation. Without that we will surely continue to be hungry.
