Packalinding Kafo Community Garden Project – The Gambia

The GambiaThis is a project to create a community garden in a village in The Gambia.

It is being supervised by Shayla Summerhill, Peace Corps Volunteer, working with Packalinding Madina Kanbeng Kafo, a registered association, certified to operate since January 2009.

The association selected the project to help unite the community, address malnutrition, and alleviate poverty. In addition, it will foster food security within the community.

The project will bring variety to the diets of the villagers, and generate income for those who work in the garden. The principal beneficiaries will be the women who take part in the process.

The work will be done by volunteer members of the community. Project funds are being used for materials and other resources.

Water Charity is pleased to participate in this project. Once underway, we will keep you updated as it progresses.
