Community projects by Les Amis de Gambie
In addition to ‘Les Amis de Gambie,' the organisation also helps to improve the living conditions of the local community with the aim of helping to stimulate the local economy, by recruiting and employing local people and sourcing local produce as far as is possible.
Furthermore, the organisation provides direct aid and support to those who need it most by distributing, for example, school uniforms, school equipment and food packages.
The organisation has previously installed three boreholes in the village where the orphanage is located to ensure the supply of clean drinking water.
Les Amis de Gambie has also constructed two soccer fields, both equipped with a tiled supporters’ stand and the organisation has significantly improved the long sand track that runs from the main road up to the village leading up to both the orphanage and the neighbouring village.
