HELPING SOME OF THE POOREST CHILDREN IN THE GAMBIA
Child Aid Gambia is a Christian charity that is motivated by faith and guided by humility. We believe in a vision for a better world for all children, regardless of their personal beliefs or spiritual background. We are working to provide emotional and spiritual support to children who need it, once we have done everything we can to secure their physical health and safety.
We are a non-profit charity that works to reduce childhood poverty, inequality and suffering in The Gambia and Senegal. We formed in 2011, and work alongside families, schools, churches and communities to give disadvantaged children a brighter tomorrow.
The children we help are among the poorest in The Gambia. We prioritise children who have been impacted the hardest by poverty – those who have been orphaned or live on the streets, those who have been abused or neglected, and those who work on the Bakoteh rubbish dump and those without access to their basic needs and children from marginalised groups, such as disabled children and vulnerable girls.
Guided by faith and inspired by the unconditional love of God, we are a Christian charity who supports children of all beliefs and backgrounds. Regardless of what a child may have been through or the severity of poverty they have endured, we believe that they are important, special, and deserving of a new beginning.
We are standing up for all children in The Gambia, protecting their right to have a safe and happy childhood.
We are raising money to ship storybooks and textbooks to schools in The Gambia, giving Gambian children the opportunity to read stories about what it means to be a black and African child. These books will provide valuable representation for children in The Gambia, who often miss out on seeing characters like themselves in books and other media.
A £5 donation will pay for one book to be sent out to a school in The Gambia. Click donate to make a donation, and help us to provide more books for Gambian children today!
