Reviews for GAMBIA HEALTH EDUCATION LIAISON PROJECT (GambiaHELP)

Rating: 5 stars  

GambiaHELP has contributed alot to women's empowerment and girl's education in my country of The Gambia through cereal banking, skills development and paying for school fees for girls. This charity works with the community directly with a participatory process to build libraries, skill centers and digging wells.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd like to see GambiaHELP do even more to promote girl's education.
