Something to Dance About
Great News from GambiaHELP!
Prosser Rotary has funded $3,500 for the chicken farm in Kerewan!

We were also awarded $5,000 from University District Rotary!

Along with all the wonderful individual donations received, we now have enough to complete the chicken farm which will bring much needed protein to the young students and provide a business for the village community which will help support the school.  Much thanks to all for your help. We are so grateful for all these donations.

Our next phase of the Kerewan project is to rebuild the school to provide a better learning place for the children. We will keep you informed on the progress of the Chicken Coop and the increased nutrition of the Children of Kerewan.

And more good news!  Ebrima and Sainabou Wadda made a generous donation to build a library in a village in The Gambia to help enhance education.  Reading is a great gift for Gambian children.   If you would like to help stock this new library with books, please see our library page.

Since 1999 GambiaHELP has built over 50 libraries in The Gambia and has brought more than 100,000 books into the country.  Many children have learned the joy of reading because of these libraries and the mentors that help the children when they are there. Donate to our libraries.

Book Sorting Volunteers needed on Saturday, January 23rd from 9:30am-12 noon at Hansen Brothers Moving and Storage, 10750 Aurora Avenue N., Seattle. Pizza and beverages will be served.

If you have any questions, please contact Director Shelby Tarutis at or visit our web site
