The daily work in our projects

The daily work on the ground is done by our Gambian partner organisation “Project Aid The Gambia”. In The Gambia it is registered as “International NGO A57″ | here|.  At our Main Office located in Manjai Kunda next to the capital city Banjul a Gambian Project Coordinator – supported by a small team – organizes the daily work in all of our projects. He especially cares for the logistics of the in-time delivery of all drugs to Jahaly Health Center. At least once a month the Project Coordinator is travelling to Buniadu and Jahaly , where our projects are based.  Jahaly is located in the Central River Region (CRR) 270 kilometers upcountry at the south bank of the river Gambia.

Project Aid The Gambia employs a total of about 70 staffs, amongst others nurses, teachers, cleaners and gardeners.  A Head of the Clinic and a Headmaster team are managing Jahaly Health Center and Jahaly/Madina Kindergarten. More Informationen on our staff in The Gambia you may find | here |
