A three-pronged aid programme!
The first prong: humanitarian aid to the people of The Gambia
The second prong: making young people aware of the need for aid in sub-Saharan Africa
The third prong: getting young people of all races to work together on a humanitarian project
In reality there is a “fourth prong” as well, as every year the project is supported by volunteers who lend their assistance to this humanitarian project and who pay their own travel and accommodation expenses.
It is worth pointing out that the participating students and the teachers accompanying them are not expected to contribute a thing to their expenses. These are covered from the gifts received by the organization and the proceeds of fund-raising activities.
Any grants from official bodies are devoted entirely to the acquisition and transport of the necessary equipment.
