Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Amy and Ash are raising money for a powerful and beneficial project in Gambia. We will be joined by a large team of volunteers in January 2013 to set up an infant school in Sittanunku, North Gambia, for local kids and orphans who are not currently getting an education.

Football Gambia is a small non-profit UK Charity, which promotes education through the use of football in Gambia, West Africa. Those of you that know us will appreciate our passion for football, therefore to have the chance to work with communities and use football as a learning tool is a huge privelage to us.

We will be working with communities, football club academies and schools to help children and youth gain a better education and live a healthy lifestyle. Our volunteer work will include; renovating an existing building for the school, securing the school grounds, sharing teaching techniques with the Gambian teachers, and running football/sports leaders courses for coaches and teachers.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. 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 it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now!

Thanks for all your support.
