The Gambia Story

Project Gambia was set up by Neil Griffiths, (who is also The Scrapstore’s Patron) with the aim to support and oversee the education and welfare of children in five pre-schools in the town of Gunjur in The Gambia. This West African country has few natural resources, the average life expectancy is 49 and many families survive on one meal a day!
