Gambian Children

Street children in the Gambia is a problem. There are no known numbers, although some say that the numbers are very high.

This is because some families in the Gambia cannot meet their requirements for food and shelter, let alone education, which means that these childrens development is severly restricted and is a major factor for pushing children onto the street.

  • Unwanted pregnancies
  • Baby dumping by Gambian mothers
  • Baby dumping by neighbouring countries ( Gambian Law law states that children under 7 and found in the Gambia are Gambians

Education gives these children a chance
