Since the Rotary Club of Fajara was chartered in 2000, we have achieved a great deal across the Gambia. Our approach is one of delivering the basics and building the foundations so that Gambians can help themselves out of poverty, ill health and poor educational achievement.
Our current projects include health, educational and water projects. We have projects developed by ourselves, but also facilitate projects developed by others as a local partner. However, we have great ambition to make a difference to the people of the Gambia, so we are actively planning projects we would like to undertake.
Our work involves partnering with government, communities, other Rotary Clubs and a wide variety of other funders and stakeholders. As a small club in a poor country, we are not able to generate sufficient funds for these projects locally but our passion for service drives us to spread the word of what could be achieved here in the Gambia and facilitate help from others.
