The United Purpose (UP) Gambia chapter was founded in 1992, positively working in concert with various Gambian relief charities and other development NGOs in order to  improve the welfare and standards of living of the economically deprived in urban and rural communities.

United Purpose is an international NGO which determined to meeting the basic requirements of remote and impoverished village communities, who by their very geographic locations are distant from most public amenities such as schools, running water, pharmacies and hospitals.

UP main targets are in finding ways to increase and maintain steady rural incomes; slowing the expansion of AIDS / HIV between people, enhance the preparedness of communities to evade and react to natural disasters such as floods and droughts.

United Purpose set up an office base in Senegal in 1992 and has, among other aid agencies, been supporting displaced refugees and communities in the Foni District of The Gambia and the neighbouring Casamance region caused by the civil war.

Gambia Is Good:
This is a fruit and vegetable business which is as a result of collaborative initiative between UP and Haygrove UK. It is a distribution centre for small Gambian farmers which is hoped will allow them to make the transition from subsistence living to cash crop farming. More >>>

Main UK Charity:
