    Weʼve raised £195 to Sponsor a Desk at AYA Aljamdou Forrest Primary School!

    The Gambia
    Funded on Tuesday, 25th June 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Action for Youth Africa is building a primary school in Aljamdou, a rural village on the north bank of The Gambia. The closest primary school is long and dangerous walk to a neighbouring village; the walk must be completed by children as young as 6 if they want to get an education!

    We have received donations and fundraised for the first block of classrooms, which will hold Grades 1-3 and will open in September 2019. However, we do not have the money to cover desks for the students to sit in.

    Please help me help these children to get a quality education. As Nelson Mandela said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Education is a way of developing a community, helping it to become strong and self-sustaining. Help me in giving this strength and independence to Aljamdou village!

    I have been involved in sustainable development projects in The Gambia for the past 6 years. In 2018, I co-founded Action for Youth Africa. Since then, we have renovated a school library and school toilets, built a Women's Cooperative and are now building a primary school!
