Dear members, sponsors and friends of Project Aid The Gambia!

On 1 June 2017, our new project manager in Gambia, Mass Suso, started his work.

Mr. Mass Suso, aged 39, possesses widely ranged capabilities of management skills. He holds a Diploma in Management Studies and a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Administration. He attended professional training for Leadership and Project Management. In his last position he worked as the Human Resources Manager as a member of the senior management team of Radville Farms Ltd. in The Gambia.

The Board of Project id The Gambia is looking forward to working together. In the first months, Mass Suso is supported by Biba Mousa, who was a project manager in 2011/2012.

The background of changing the management can be summarized as follows:

After an astonishing joint resignation of the four-strong management team as well as the joint resignation of all the project employees of Jahaly Health Centre and Kindergarten in Jahaly all projects in the Gambia were steetering on the brink of collapse, after 25 years.

Jahaly Health Centre was closed for 17 days. The clinic staff did not resume their work until June 6, 2017.

The former management team submitted incomplete, late or not at all the necessary information from the projects needed for the decisions of the Management Board. Information from the Management Board to the employees in Jahaly were not disclosed.

The former management team replaced a letter from the clinic staff in which salary increases were demanded by its own completely different version, titled “Letter of Resignation” and sent it to the board in Germany.

After further investigations, the Management Board will decide whether the former management in the Gambia will be charged with criminal charges for falsification of documents.

The Kindergarten remains closed and will open again in September after the summer holidays. Project Aid The Gambia is currently under negotiation with the Gambian government, which is set to provide the teachers for the kindergarten from the new academic year. The Gambian Ministry of Education has already announced the willingness to do so. Project Aid The Gambia remains responsible for the buildings, for renovations and teaching materials.

This cooperation with the Gambian government is initially planned as a pilot project for a period of two years. In so far as the quality of education and care of children is maintained, the Board of Management of Project Aid The Gambia considers such a cooperation to be forward-looking in development cooperation: non-profit organizations such as Project Aid are responsible for building and maintenance and overseeing the organization and structure of the projects. The government provides the staff.

If this cooperation does not develop to the satisfaction of Project Aid The Gambia, the employees would return to the Project Aid after the pilot phase.

By saving the staff costs for the teachers of the kindergarden, funding is available to Project Aid, which the Manament Board would like to use in the long term to support further state Health Centers and schools.

The first such project where Project Aid The Gambia is going to take over the responsibility for buildings and technical installations (water / solar) and for the supply of drugs is the state run Njaba Kunda Health Centre.

In this context, the Board of Management of Project Aid The Gambia has decided on a strategic reorientation of the project work in The Gambia:

  1. As a model clinic, Jahaly Health Centre remains completely in the hands of Project Aid The Gambia
  2. The Moringa plantation is still operated by Project Aid The Gambia
  3. The kindergarten is run in a two-year pilot phase in cooperation with the Gambian government
  4. Njaba Kunda Health Centre as a joint pilot project of Project Aid The Gambia and the Gambian government leads to a new organization of rural health care in The Gambia

A detailed report is available on request. This report will be presented at the next regular annual meeting of Project Aid The Gambia in Germany.

 

Sincerely, Your Board of Management

Sign-board-Jahaly-Health-Centre-Buschklinik-3I, Matthias Ketteler, for and on behalf of myself as well as the board of Projekthilfe Gambia e. V. (Germany) and the management of Project Aid The Gambia NGO A 57, would like to express our deep concerned about the current political situation in the country. We have been providing development assistance for more than 30 years. Our spirits, our hearts and minds have been with the People of The Gambia in particular the masses, the old and young, the faces and lives that we have touched for the past thirty years and will continue to do so.

The friendliness and warmth that many people have sown us during our work in The Gambia is unique. This has deeply touched our hearths and ultimately gave us strength, motivation and passion to build even more friendship. We also hope to foster development in future which will benefit the people of The Gambia especially the people living in the rural area who desperately needs help and we are fully committed to fulfill our objectives by supporting them even more.

Our work has always been and will surely remain beneficial to the helpless, the sick, men and women, old and young people of the Republic of The Gambia. Being cognizant of the fact that our work does not entails only the provision of Aid but also to show love and dedication which undoubtedly helps the people including the sick as it changes their lives for the better.

As an International NGO we have closely followed the current events in The Gambia from December 1st 2016 to date and cannot help but to express our concern for the safety of The Gambian people whom we served. We see our goals as a 100% dedicated NGO, facing the possibility of not being made to manifest the current developments and worry for the future of our friends, our employees and extended families that are presently seeking for a brighter and better future.

On that note and with nothing but goodwill and love, we therefore appeal to all political leaders to engage in dialogue and commitment that will benefit the People of The Gambia. To make decision based on respect of the laws of The Gambia and to take account of the wishes of the people of The Gambia and the values of peace, ethics and  secular coexistence of all the religions, tribes and cultures that  in our opinion is the most priceless gift of The Gambia. This is something so unique, so rare in the world we live in today.

This is the beauty of The People of The Gambia, which in our opinion must be persevered and be made the corner stone of any decision or action that the different parties will take. It is also our hope that all decisions and measures taken must be towards the prevention of anarchy to cause harm to the people of The Gambia. This instrument is therefore the foundation to peaceful transition process that is manifested by the entire population.

We urge and wish for a peaceful outcome of the current situation in The Gambia, without threat or violence. It is evident to see that this is the opinion of the majority of the population of Gambians at home and abroad including friends of The Gambia. The people of The Gambia would like to see a future without fear, a future of new dawns, new hopes and new beginnings. This fact has been made evident by the determination of Gambian People. We express our prayers and thus demonstrate our goodwill gesture to support the aspiration of the Gambian people who deserves to be respected at all cost. It is the duty of any government to respect and implement the decision and choice of her people.

The very foundation of democracy is built on the this principle of respect of the choice of the people, by the people, and this constitutional right must be not only defended but also respected by the politically elected representatives that are in office by way of a democratically elected and chosen people and government.

We hope that those entrusted with this mandate will act solely in the interest of peace, love and the successful future of The Gambia.

Thought for today and a gentle reminder.

In peace and friendship always,

Matthias Ketteler, chairman and Good Will Ambassador At Large of The Republic of The Gambia, in the name of the board of Projekthilfe Gambia e. V. (Germany) and the management of Project Aid The Gambia NGO A 57.

Project-cars-2016-04_kleinWhat an amazing birthday present! Few days ahead of the 25th anniversary of Jahaly Health Centre our new project cars have safely arrived in The Gambia: two secondhand VW Touareg cars – safely stored in a 40 feet container. With all our heart we appreciate the generous donor who wants to remain anonymous.

It was not easy to locate “our” container amongst all the others at Banjul port and to safely unload the cars. Now they are parked inside the compound of the headquarters of Project Aid The Gambia in Manjai Kunda waiting to be provided with Gambian number plates.

This is another possibility of supporting Project Aid The Gambia: asking your local Pastor or priest to donate the open/free collection of the church service to Project Aid.  The local churches are always looking for serious Partners and sustainable procets where to donate their open collections to. In February the church Kirchengemeinde Hademarschen located in the northern part of Germany has donated two free collections of their attenders at church to Project Aid. The donation was a total of  € 152,61. This amount would be enough to pay for a student´s seat at our kindergarten for a whole academic year. We say thank you very much and recommend to kindly copy this idea.

Since end of January we support “Tanka Tanka”, the only mental health inpatient facility of The Gambia, by building a new large soak away to prevent the existing one from over flooding. Later both constructions will be linked. The first steps: doing the measurements and moulding one thousand handcrafted blocks.

In addition we will repair, extend and modernize the existing electric of the hospital.

A major problem for the clinic with its eighty inpatients is the lack of medicine. The board of Project Aid is planning for the time being to supply the hospital with the most needed drugs for one year. We already have scheduled talks on this with the Gambian Ministry of Health (MOH) and local supporters of “Tanka Tanka”.
