Supporting the provision of quality education was the reason that WYCE was founded, and remains at the heart of all that we do.
WYCE supports the provision of primary health care through supporting maternity services and outpatient/nurse consultations. The most common health problems in The Gambia are malaria, fever, chest pain, cough, sore mouth, diarrhoea, respiratory tract infection, wounds and skin infections.
By supporting the improvement of The Gambia's education, literacy, numeracy and health, we are helping it's people to stand on their own two feet – so that they can get jobs or set up their own enterprises to support themselves and their families.
Funds from our supporters have built a bee farm (producing honey, beeswax, soap, candles and creams), a building workshop, enabled a bike sales business and a repair workshop, shops, a bakery, and a working lodge. These were all designed to develop skills and provide jobs for local people, and to make money to support further development.
