Many of you will have heard of the recent
problems in The Gambia, many of the youths have tried to go "the back way" and
have ended up either drowning in the Mediterranean or in refugee camps in Europe.
Unemployment in The Gambia is very high and the new Government faces a huge task to turn
We came up with the idea of an apprenticeship
scheme where unemployed youths can come and work with the GHDT and learn, then they can
take their new found knowledge back to their communities to help the animals there. The
cost of such a scheme would be £10.40p per week, £41.60 per month, or £500 per year,
which would give a young person hope and skills which he/she could use to help his
community. If you would be interested in participating in this scheme you would be given
the details of the young person that you are sponsoring and would receive a report at the
end of the year on his/her progress. You could even come to visit the person you sponsor.
This is really a unique way of helping both
people and animals and though we know that £10.40 per week is a large amount of money,
£500 as a fundraising target is achievable. It would be a wonderful thing to do and would
give a young person hope and help with animal welfare too.
For more information about taking part in this
scheme, please contact the GHDT Office.
