Wendy and Julian Andrews went to Gambia on a holiday and by chance were invited to meet some of the local villagers. They were shocked to see their living conditions and to find out that the children often got no schooling. They also met a wonderful British lady who had moved out there and was doing all she could to get help for the schools. She had set up a charity called a Goal for Gambia, which can be followed on Facebook.
When Wendy and Julian asked how they could help they were told of a need for clean used children’s clothes and underpants (age 4-9) for the Gambia nursery – Kitty Nursery – and also skipping ropes, English Dictionaries, plimsoles and flip flops.
