Charity Pearl The Gambia is an organisation that helps families and children from a disadvantaged background in The Gambia. A non-government, voluntary, non-profit and humanitarian organisation, whose main aim is to enhance life quality of children, youth and families, as well as to promote and include children into the process of education, from the pre-school period to adolescence.
Main task is helping vulnerable and underprivileged children – to educate and protect them. Education is one of the basic human rights and every child should have access to free education. It is vital to our development as human beings and society as a whole – it is a tool to a successful and productive future. Once we ensure the children’s basic rights and quality education that does not tolerate gender differences, we have made an impact on the future generations. There are still too many children in this world who do not have an opportunity to get quality education. Each of these children has a dream which may never come true. By enabling children to go to school, we build foundations for growth, innovation, possibilities and equality.
All programmes are adapted to local conditions and are based on needs of local people in order to shape the foundations of further development. We are following the path we have drawn for ourselves and are bringing individuals and companies together in a common desire to diminish socio-economic differences among people and play an active part in helping to spread social solidarity towards those in need, as well as develop life values and protect families and children in need.
PLANS AND ACTIVITIES TO HELP THOSE IN NEED
The project SPONSOR A CHILD walks hand in hand with the project to help disadvantaged families in The Gambia by raising funds to provide food, education and other necessities for the development and improvement of life standards of those most in need.
Project help people to lead a descent life and provide for their children as well as put them in school. We would like to create possibilities to educate every child in a family as well as improve quality of education for girls, which is their ticket to a better life.
We continue to cooperate with various charity organisations throughout the world by raising funds for school fees and looking for sponsors to children. What motivates us the most are the smiles we put on children’s faces, inner satisfaction and the immense joy we feel when we give selflessly.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?
Travel as a volunteer
All donors or those who want to become one can visit The Gambia and see for themselves the circumstances, which children, women and members of our organisation in Africa live in.
The journey to the destination where we help children is no ordinary journey. It leaves a deep impact on an individual and it is definitely an unforgettable experience. The main purpose of such a journey is to visit and spend time with the children we are helping, as well as visit local hospitals and schools. Volunteers have the option to join us and work with children and experience daily life in schools for themselves.
We live and work with children
We have visited and got to know all the families and children we are helping and we have seen with our own eyes the circumstances these people live in. We are aware of the fact that we have to be present at the location, for this is the only way we can oversee the funds that are intended for the families and make sure the money goes to the project it was intended for. In this way the donated funds are secure.
We are always available for additional information and personal contact
Even though sometimes we face different problems (no electricity, slow network, work in the villages), we are always available to offer additional information and to meet with you in person. We can arrange for you to talk to the child you are sponsoring, you can see all the documentation, photos, videos, etc.
