Conversion of an old schoolroom to be a COMMUNITY CENTRE. First steps – proper tiled floor, secure windows and an electricity supply.

by Marian Gilpin in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

The town of Yate and the rural village of Genieri in the Gambia have been linked for some 36 years, and we, in Yate, have been able to support the villagers not only during times of hardship but also to help build a thriving and sustainable community, 

Alongside the Primary School and the Women’s Vegetable Gardens, we have established a Primary Healthcare Centre where a part-time community nurse can administer basic treatments and simple medicines.

THE PROPOSED COMMUNITY CENTRE will provide a pleasant place for village groups to get together (especially in the rainy season) to give health information, to administer children's vaccinations, to celebrate family occasions,  to share TV programmes (a TV, the only one in the village, has already been donated) to project family-style films. (The Alkalo (head man) has said 'no violence')
