Information:
The Dresden Banjul Organisation (DBO) is a Gambian registered NGO (14th December 2007 - No. A119) and the fundraising charity arm for the car rally called the 'Dresden-Dakar-Banjul Challenge' from Germany to the Gambia in order to distribute goods and raise funds for schools, health, relief work, and farming.

Its main aim is not about who can get to be the winner of the race but about assisting the people of this small West African country.

Private teams in small groups travel in trucks, saloons, and 4WD vehicles over a 7,000 km route from Germany through France, Spain then through the Sahara Desert countries of Morocco, Mauritania and onto Dakar in Senegal and terminating in The Gambia. Drivers are expected to manage an average for stages of 800km per day excluding border crossings, rests and waiting times.

All the lorries and other vehicles are filled with products that are urgently required with a particular emphasis on teaching books, desks, chairs, medical monitoring & diagnostic equipment and ambulances.

Money is raised by the DBO is from the eventual auction of vehicles that have taken part in the rally as well as private individual donations such as from the Association for Kehlitz Steffen.

Beneficiaries:
Blue Kitchen in Fajara - Operation Feed the People
Lambai, Ceesay, Brusubi & Kobisala nursery schools
Kundembo Health Post Gunjur
Sukuta Heath Centre
Sukuta Women's Garden
