He said the Foundation is doing its projects in stages, adding that the projects will for now focus in the Greater Banjul Area but that in December it will expand its projects to the rural Gambia.

Mrs. Mian, senior lecturer at the University of West England, expressed delight at the launch of the projects in the country, adding that the project became a reality after her December visit in the Gambia.

While both Paulin Bailey and Odiri Ighamire, key founders of ‘Daughters of Africa Foundation’, expressed their delight and assured of the continued collaboration of the Association in the country.
