Kasa Kunda —
In Kasa Kunda, a village with about 2,500 people in Gambia, we have started various projects together with the village residents with the aim of improving the living situation and creating jobs. It is important to us that we together try out and experiment with what really works. In this way, we learn together and can bring successful projects to other villages.
On the ground, we work together with Mussa Salla. He pulls the strings and coordinates the projects. Next to the people of Kasakunda, he is our most important partner.

bus project —
The project started at the end of 2019 with the aim of creating a source of income and a workplace through the purchase of a transport bus. The income will be used to pay for running costs such as petrol and repairs, and to pay the driver’s wages. Despite Corona, more than 2,000 euros have been earned since then. The purchase of two more buses is planned.
solar project —
Together with the organisation Fandema, we want to bring solar energy to Kasa Kunda. The project teaches women technical skills. The concept is that the women of Kasakunda receive training to install solar cells on the roofs. In this way, the villagers can contribute on their own to supplying Kasakunda with renewable energy. Currently, there is no public electricity connection there.
internet project —
Kasa Kunda has an extremely poor connection to the inernet. Together with the village leaders we want to work out a concept to establish an internet connection not only to Kasa Kunda but also to the surrounding villages. We have therefore contacted the Gambia’s network provider, Gamtel, and together we want to work out the requirements for the connection.
Youth House Project —
In Kasa Kunda there is an almost completed building that a former investor built as a community centre. Unfortunately, he passed away before the building was completed and now we want to finish it! The plan is to build a cultural place and a meeting point where young people can gather. We want to set up a small workspace, a bistro, a shop, a co-working space and a cold storage room there.
