Gambia

The Gambia is part of the Province of West Africa and Evangelism and social responsibility have been the hallmarks of mission and ministry in rhe Anglican Church of Gambia. Members have been helping with various activities such as running a nursery school and considering the needs of both woman and children.

Forty years ago, Mothers’ Union Gambia saw that many urban families could not afford care or schooling for their children. In response to this need, they set up a nursery in Babjuldning which provides care for more than 200 children each year. All the costs are met locally and Mothers’ Union members are actively involved in fundraising; hosting a couple of major fundraising events each year (like a sponsored walk and a dinner-dance). This seemingly small Mothers’ Union has nevertheless been responsible for running a vital community outreach to children.
