Helping others to help themselves.
From today, JustGiving will no longer charge a 5% platform fee to charities in the UK. Donors will be able to make a voluntary contribution to support the operation of JustGiving’s platform. This means we will be able to raise even more money for the Dance2Learn cause!
Why not take advantage now!?
We're back from our 2019 trip to The Gambia*.
This time, we combined 3 projects:
1) Distribution of the Wakawaka solar lights
2) Inauguration of "Presley's Rainbow Education Place"
3) Distribution of donated baby/toddler clothes
Pictures of the trip are coming soon, meanwhile, here's an illustration of the 3 aims.
*ALL travel to The Gambia, immunisation costs and accommodation costs are covered by us PERSONALLY (therefore we make such trips our yearly holiday).
NO donated money is used for these expenses!
Just heard from Beppie in The Gambia:
"Just received a phone call from the shipper. The boxes arrived (at the port in The Netherlands). The boxes are in container no. XXX and it will leave to the port on Wednesday."
Whoop, whoop! Bon voyage!

We've received the following email about the WakaWakaLights shipment from our Dutch sponsors, Global Energy Gambia:
"The boxes have been collected and will be in the container leaving on 21st of November."
Watch this space.
