Thank you for showing interest in our campaign to raise money for this goal!
Our goal is to raise money for Ousman (for his privacy we give only the first name) to be able to start his own business in Gambia.
Gambia is known as the smiling coast of Africa. The people are so friendly and willing to give you all their attention. We thought it would be great to be able to give some attention back to someone who is really serious about his dreams and goals in life.
They say it is better to help a man build his own business than to just give them some money to go shopping for a day. To be able to provide for your family is a much greater good.
Gambia is a developing country. But yes... There are very few job opportunities and most of the time it's a 'who knows who'-situation. Let us tell you about the dreams and goals of Ousman.
He told us that he would really love to start his own business, like we show you on the video. A truck!
A truck that has to do a heavy job. Driving with sand and stones. But we see it as a great start to help rebuild the country. To create job opportunities. And for him to be able to provide for his family. When the truck business starts growing, he hopes to open his own shop with building materials like cement and blocks. After that to build small social houses and rent them to families who really need it. And growing and growing. Ideas enough. He can talk for hours... A big and kind heart, but not the foundation to start...
Will you help us to raise the money needed to buy a second hand truck like you see on the picture and send it to him in Gambia?
Money needed for the truck aprox. 20.000 Euro and for the shipping around 5000 Euro.
