Hey lovely people,
Thank you for visiting our page. We are all volunteers for People For Change, a small, tight-knit organisation made up of passionate volunteers who have been travelling to Africa for the last 10 years to support poverty-stricken children (2-18 years old) and their communities in the hope of contributing to their lives in a way that has lasting positive impact for generations to come.
We do this completely on a voluntary basis (by also paying for our flights) and by focusing on three main aspects of wellbeing:
1) Health - providing medical visits with qualified nurses, doctors and psychologists
2) Education - providing free access to school and didactical material to all our sponsored children
3) Nutrition - Providing a balanced meal each day to over 200+ children
This October we will be going to Ballanghar, Gambia to run medical visits to over 300 children, deliver courses on health, hygiene and diseases prevention and we will also carry out maintenance and redecorating our kindergarten to make it more efficient for the students.
We are donating our time and money but we are also hoping to receive your financial support to raise £400 approx, which will be used for the following:
1. Painting the school and drawing in the classes (£200)
2. Renovating current furniture (desks, chairs, blackboards) and purchasing any new one if needed (£200)
We are extremely grateful for all your support! Your donation means the world to us and will ensure rural communities in Ballanghar, Gambia thrive.
