March & April Newsletter
We rescued a total of twenty three children from trafficking and exploitation. In cooperation with law enforcement we also had seven traffickers/paedophiles arrested.
NEW Gambia Rescue Centre Roof
We wanted to thank everyone who kindly donated to our Gambia Rescue
and Rehabilitation Centre rebuild campaign!
We also had a brand shower and toilet built
Thanks to you the children now have a new and safe roof, new toilet, shower, animal out-house, shower toilet building, fridge/freezer but most importantly a safe, healthy and comfortable environment to house children from exploitation and trafficking.
It’s very important to PRC that we have our own rescue and rehabilitation centers where we know children can be helped in a safe, peaceful and comfortable environment. We spend more time, funds and resources on the rehabilitation of children than rescues. All made possible through our wonderful global donors. Without you we can not do what we do for children.
Also a very big thank you to PRC Director Natalie London and her carpenter husband Dane London who traveled from Australia at their own expense for the month of March-April to supervise and help local builders.
They worked non-stop all day and into the evenings with local PRC volunteers getting dirty and stuck in to many tasks. We know they had a fantastic first time in the Gambia experiencing long life memories.
Dane has now been appointed ‘Project Rescue Children building manager’.
Additionally, We are delighted to officially announce our partnership with the Gambian Education Minister and education department. In a first of a kind our Child Safety Workshop - ‘Be Brave’ has officially been included free into the Gambian school curriculum for all schools across the country fully funded by PRC.
