This project was to create a community garden in a village in The Gambia. Water Charity participated in the water-related aspects of the garden, including the construction of the garden well.
The objective of this project was to alleviate poverty and foster food security in the community. The community members were very positive and motivated to get the job completed efficiently and correctly.
45 people directly benefited from this project. The garden will help to generate income and give people variety in their diet.
We extend our thanks to Shayla for completing this important project.
