Enabling Communities & Inspiring Children in Africa
In 2018 we finally managed to generate enough surplus funds to invest in a community beyond the borders of British society, extending our impact as a registered social enterprise and Community Interest Company (CIC) to West Africa. Our first overseas project saw us on a trip to The Gambia, where we visited Jolly Friends Nursery and Immaculate St. Mary’s School to deliver empowering messages, games, equipment, and gifts.
Schools in The Gambia are severely underfunded with no utilities for clean running water – that's right, the quintessential element for life on Earth. Our goal is to raise funds for Sports For Champions UK (CIC) to return and install wind turbines near our friends in The Gambia, to provide them with a reliable source of energy while non-profits and other NGOs explore and implement solutions for a sustainable water supply.
If you know of others working towards such social innovations, investing philanthropically, or perhaps a volunteer who might be pleased to join us on our next trip to deliver even greater value to those who need it most... please share with them and across social media: Jolly Friends Nursery
