This will be the second time I am going out to the gambia to work on a few projects we have planned such as rennovation an old building into a nursery, garden work to make a vegetable garden for the locals, working on a bore hole to provide clean and safe water and much more, this is a great cause and I had the most amazing experience in January 2012 please help and make a difference it is really appreciated. Thank you 

'Helping to promote education through football and develop communities in the Gambia (West Africa)'

Football Gambia is a small non-profit UK Charity, which promotes education through football in the Gambia (West Africa). We work with communities, football clubs academies and schools to ensure the children and youth attend school and live a healthy lifestyle. 

Football Gambia is not just about football – our main goal is to educate the children of the Gambia. We provide educational materials, text books, notepads, pencils etc to nurseries and schools, all over the country, providing the children with the 'right tools' to enhance their education. As a bonus, we also provide the children with quality football equipment and they receive professional football coaching.
In January I am visiting Gambia with a group of people with this charity so I am trying to raise as much money as I can to support this trip and help to support this charity as much as I can.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

So please dig deep and donate now.
