Mission Statement

Our mission is to ensure a productive community of inter-generational Gambian immigrants in New York City who would contribute to the city culturally and economically. We want to build bridges with other neighbors, local businesses, inistitutions and other community-oriented organizations.

Description

Our program objectives this year are:

  • To facilitate an after-school enrichment program for inner-city youth, this would include tutoring, mentoring and career support.
  • To organize health seminars, on topics such as blood pressure, high cholestorol. diabetes and heart failure.
  • To bring women of the community together by organizing trips, having baking/icing classes, make-up sessions, sports field days and "therapy" sessions.

I am not available on the 21st. However I am very interested in the organization. Unfortunately the Contact Us page isn't working on their website and it doesn't have other options.

That was an endearing event filled with fun activities, good food and most of all a nice warmed group of people. The event was well planned and organized. I will definitively do it again.
