Schools for Gambia Leipzig e.V.

Main aim of the charity

We support education, health and agriculture in The Gambia. Our aim is to built schools for orphans and less privileges who are left behind in our communities and together we can make lives better.

How the employee got involved and why

I was managing other charitable organizations in my home country The Gambia for 23 years. Then 2016 I started my very own project: Lajos Nursery School Farafenni, a kindergarten for orphans, half-orphans and other children who's parents can't afford to send them to school. 2017 I founded the charitable organization Schools for Gambia Leipzig e.V.. Our cause is to provide a quality education for children.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I am the chairman of the charitable organization, every year I spent my yearly holidays in The Gambia to help the poor and the needy Gambians. In Germany I try to raise funds for the school feeding program, the medical care of the children, the school materials, schools uniforms ... I personally pay the teachers every month from my salary.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Winning this is going to provide a better live for at least 400 children, free education for the orphans and a free healthcare, at the moment I have a lot of children on a waiting list, so thats why I struggle to build them a proper school. Winning could help making that possible.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

Winning this is going to be like a dream come true, because I believe in education for all not just the privileges.
