Information:
Africa Startup Gambia is a Norwegian headquartered charitable foundation whose main goal is to develop and enhance occupations in The Gambia through private enterprise, use of better agricultural techniques and environmental conservation.

The organisation welcomes volunteers and charity donations to help run the institution.


On the founding of Africa Startup charity in 2008, the emphasis was on infrastructure programs and starting new businesses and pushing for an enterprising culture. As time went by it was soon noticed that the main cause of difficulties was in large part due to a deficiency of basic education and to bring in new ways of problem solving. Because of these factors, the emphasis has shifted to creating two major programs, MyProduce and MyFarm.

This almost 2.5 acre charity farm in Sukuta is a live-in education center for agriculturalists, children and young people, offering stimulating, customised learning courses from seed planting to business knowledge, recognising the significance of self-sufficient food security in an increasingly changeable international scene.

Products & Services:
Agricultural practice
Sales shop for local Gambian products
Soap production
Small business enterprise training
Open day visits
School holiday trips & day programs
Learning through play

Activities:
'Learning through play' is designed for young children from the nearby community. Here they use books, play tools, Lego, Duplo, iPads etc. to advance basic math and language skills.

'Learning through action' is intended for Grade 6 and over summer camps and school groups in line with the agricultural science curriculum of The Gambia whilst introducing novel, sustainable technologies including solar dryers & ovens, parabolic cookers etc.

Finally, there are extensive training courses at MyFarm Foundation targeted at young farmers and people who have left school, integrating environmental awareness and agricultural training with the necessary enterprising skills required to add value to produce and sell them at a profit.
