The Organisation / The Team
How is the project organised, who will be engaged, who will participate?
The project was organised voluntarily by myself in close cooperation with the Gambian authorities and and the Organisation JUST ACT (Janjanbureh Uniting Sustainable Tourism And Community Training).
In this regard I was involved in Gambia beginning 2019 for a period of 2 months in order to coordinate and supervise the planing and implementation activities.
A continuative support and control by myself (and eventually others) is also planed as a voluntary service. In this regard it is also planed to work in close cooperation with NFI (Nature Friends Internationale)
JUST ACT - Janjanbureh Uniting Sustainable Tourism And Community Training
In 2015 JUST ACT was registered as an independent organisation with The National Youth Council The Gambia retaining the same Main Aims as Just Act Gambia
To enable community-led development
To support accredited and non - accredited training through local organisations thereby developing life skills and income earning opportunities
To maximise the use of local expertise in developing training
To enable Janjanbureh and surrounding areas to develop responsible, sustainable pro-poor tourism for the benefit of the community whilst respecting the local culture, traditions and the natural environment
To enable rural regeneration so the school population of today is assured of a prospering town sufficient to reduce rural /urban/ illegal migration
