The country
The Gambia


The Gambia is the smallest country on mainland Africa, gaining its independence from the United Kingdom in 1965. It is entirely surrounded by Senegal except for its coastline on the Atlantic Ocean at its western end. The Gambia river has not only  given the small country its name, but also defined its geographical shape.

Since its founding in 1998, CHF 1 million has been invested to develop, support and maintain projects in the areas of health, education and agriculture in The Gambia. The FVH cooperates closely with the governmental ministries of The Gambia in order to adapt the country’s programmes and strategies in these areas. Please have a look at our current major projects in The Gambia.

In order to continue our ongoing projects and consider new ones for the future, the FVH depends on membership fees and donations. Any amount is highly appreciated and invested with care to maintain a sustainable development of all our projects in The Gambia. Approximately 96 % of all funds raised from our members, friends and charitable institutions go directly into our project work in The Gambia.
