The Vessel UK The Gambia. From 2014 Onwards….

In 2014 The Vessel Uk decided to focus on building a sustainable model for youth and community work in The Gambia. This would enable participants to develop projects that would be sustained by our partner organisation ‘Daughters of Africa Foundation’ and whose impact could now be measured over time making their contributions and the learning extremely valuable . We began the work by learning through the delivery of projects for YMCA Gambia and SOS Children Villages.  We also advanced our preparation training for participants in the UK to now involve even more international development training on African focused issues and their global implications, fundraising, group work, safeguarding and project planning. The work has led to healthy partnerships with Gambian grassroots youth and community development organisations, that have advanced their work through the enrichment gained from the input of our wonderful Vessel UK participants.
