Foundation for the Needy (SFN) is a registered non-profit
foundation that was founded to serve and aid disaster struck
and socially disadvantaged individuals and families in deprived
communities of The Gambia. It also aims to create more awareness
on child rights and to advocate for their right to an education.
The SFN foundation was formally established as a community
based charity in 2010. Since its founding, SFN has responded
to a number of disasters and aided victims in such communities.
Their central focus was to provide food aid to deprived individuals
within affected communities which is known as thee 'Feed the
Child Project'. Over time, the foundation's area of activity
grew ecompass various sustainable human development projects
and initiatives within The Gambia such as 'Shelter For a Child',
'Water for the Kids', 'Educate a Child', 'Gift for Health',
