My Gambia team was honoured to witness this event. Young men and women dressed up in their best traditional outfits welcomed the new era in the village. The event started with an enchanting reception of the guests of honour and continued with a cultural dance by groups of girls. Many of the residents expressed their sincere gratitude to the Indian community and ComAfrique-Inversol Initiative.
˝We are speechless, and the only thing we can do is thank ComAfrique-Inversol Initiative for the depth of our hearts and pray that God will repay them˝, one of the village residents commented.
The villagers set up a light committee consisting of members of the village. They will be responsible for the collection of the daily contribution of GMD 2 for each light. This is how they make the project sustainable, create a sense of responsibility, and still lower the lighting cost since one candle can cost from 5 to 10 dalasis. The money will be used to maintain and buy additional lights for the rest of the households, replace the broken ones, or even for other developments in the village. Adama Bah, a resident of the Nioro Tukolor and one of the trainees of the Fandema project, will now be responsible for the installation and maintenance of the solar lights and the training of her fellow villagers.
We seek to contribute towards the transformation and development of The Gambia by functioning also as a platform that connects people of diverse origins to the essence of working together for a better world.
