Completed Projects

Since we set up as a Charity we have developed a range of different projects and collaborations. Some have a clear end with a well defined business plan leading towards self-funded sustainability Our first such project was The Children's Health Centre in Tallinding. Our support, both financial and through a mentoring scheme, enabled the project to be run entirely by the local community in a wholly sustainable format.

Other projects were much more specific such as responding to a particular and sometimes urgent need. Our work with Eye Care For All and Japalleh Foundation reflected this model.    


Our connection to the Health Centre began in the early days of aidgambiaTCHC. Our involvement with the Centre developed in establishing a five year plan centred around Capacity Buiilding. We worked with the staff on a mentoring programme that aimed to build the skills of the the staff ad volunteers along with the local community to ensure the future of the Centre culminating in its forward operation as a self-funding, sustainable local project.

We are very proud of the achievements of the staff and volunteers we worked alongside.
