The Girls Agenda

We met a group of women in the town of Brikama during our visit and were very impressed with the work they have done over the last 7 years. They met at Gambia University and decided to create The Girls Agenda ,whose purpose is to  go to schools and talk about Human Rights for women and cover topics of FGM,forced marriage,domestic violence and the importance of education for women. They use their personal stories to inform and educate young girls and boys. They run training courses bringing girls in from the rural villages to learn.

However they do not have a base and their dream is to have a centre to be used for advice,training and if need be residential.

We are currently looking for land to buy and pricing a building because we believe this is our next project.Can you help?
