Story

So I have signed up for The London Marathon 2018! Crazy do's as crazy does! But the goal is greater than the miles I need to put in. Building a well in The Gambia for Penny Appeal is a great honour as well as getting a charity place with Team Orange. 

Everyone who contributes will gain in the reward of building this well. It will benefit us, long after we are passed away and continue to serve generations, God-Willing. 

A whole village, who currently have to walk miles for water will have it on their doorsteps, for drinking, cooking but also to grow vegetation and water animals and life stock. Please help me make this a reality. It is also income generating. local workers will be employed to build it and trained to maintain it so they can be self reliant.

I need your moral support too! Please follow me on all my social networking sites under the name 'Jogonhijabi' and share my posts and give me the encouragement I need to train and make it to the finish line!

Your fundraising could make all the difference...

 Your donation will help the construction of an entire water well that will serve a community day in, day out, providing them with fresh, clean water.  We all know that water is an essential need – but as well as being integral to stay hydrated, it is also indispensable to feed livestock and other animals so a regular source of income can be maintained, paving way for the freedom of self-sufficiency we take for granted.

Each well costs £4,000. With your help, we can give a whole community in The Gambia the water they need to thrive. In dry regions, wells need to be 10 meters deep before clean water is reached. Help us reach it by hitting that donate button!
