Africa Lives


Sohm is well away from the West Coast tourist area of Gambia

Glorious Gambia

How twelve Jersey volunteers built a skills centre in a remote part of The Gambia. 


Twelve Jersey volunteers have spent a month in West Africa for the Jersey Overseas Aid Gambia Project 2004.

After four months preparation, their aim was to build a skills centre in the village of Sohm, so that job skills can be taught to unemployed young people there.

This is a record of their achievements and experiences - take a look at the terrific photo galleries, and read the full reports of what was an unforgettable month.

You may even be inspired to go on a future trip! If so, you can get more details from Dave Ellis on 861848, though you must be a Jersey resident to be eligible for an Overseas Aid project. You can also e-mail Dave at dave@lecatelet.co.uk
