The Dutch Talokoto Foundation has been established as a result of the visit of a building team to Gambia. When they were there, it became clear that the project deserved to be continued as an independent foundation, in order to ensure the continuity of the project. The foundation was established in June 2012 and the board members and volunteers are very motivated!
The Talokoto Project involves the building of a home in Madina Talokoto for the children and older people with disabilities and for orphans. After the completion of the building and the furnishing, it will be examined whether more homes will be needed and achievable. The main aim is to give the poorest and most deprived persons a place in the society of Gambia.
To be able to do this, it is necessary that the local population grants its cooperation to it, which is also a condition.
Their cooperation is important, for they are the ones who will ultimately have to do it! That means that the foundation continues to expand its network in Gambia, and to give information on the project widely.
