About us

In 2015, a group of young Gambians and friends from abroad committed to the development of The Gambian people – particularly the deprived – decided to register a charitable organization.

The organization is registered in The Gambia as a local organization and in the Netherlands as an international charitable organization. Our group is motivated by the concerns of poverty: low income, low literacy, poor health and environmental degradation.

The founders are committed to work with the poor through an established charitable association to be called: CASA-Gambia (Community Action Support Association -Gambia). The Association shall always be in recognition of a beneficiary action as evidence of interest and feeling.  CASA-Gambia is a non-governmental organisation; a non-political, non-religious and a non-profit making charitable association with the main thrust of poverty alleviation.

CASA-Gambia will do that by improving:

  1. Basic Education and retention programme support
  2. Primary Health Care programme support
  3. Income earning improvement programme support
  4. Disaster response facilitation programme support
  5. Natural Resources Production and Management improvement support
  6. Partnership approach
