Two UK Rotary Clubs raised nearly £2000 to help light a village in The Gambia, supported by The Gambia Experience Community Development Programme.

The Village of Chebo Maty Ceesay in the North Bank Region has benefitted from the fundraising efforts of two Rotary Clubs; Rotary Club of Boston Saint Botolphs and the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland.

Their amazing fundraising efforts have resulted in the village receiving 43 ZonHome LED lights with mobile charges plus local women were trained on the assembly of the bulbs and who will be involved in the continuing maintenance of the bulbs. A great double initiative which will empower women and remove the dangerous fire hazards that candles pose.

The Gambia Experience has supported the ComAfrique Inversol Initiative for several years as part of our development and socially responsible goal as it shares our sustainable vision of helping villagers to better their lives by become more self-reliant and addressing environmental issues at the same time.

Update – The latest village village, helped as a result of money raised by Rotary Clubs Boston St Botolph and Granthan Sunrise is Kerr Giddo.
