We have known Amadou for many years – almost from his school days. He works tirelessly for a number of organisations in The Gambia. We have featured him previously in an page entitled ‘Focus on Amadou Jallow’.
As NTF has grown it has been increasingly important to be aware of the social needs of the children and families we support. Furthermore, there are many other families who can benefit from the support of NTF, who are not necessarily part of our sponsorship programme.
NTF supports, by sponsorship, around 100 children. However, there are numerous other children and families in Penyem which receive assistance in many ways from other charitable organisations. For example, Amadou has previously worked with CCF – now Child Fund.
By asking Amadou to join the NTF team, we hope he can help co-ordinate the work of all the charitable organisations to ensure a fair spread of assistance to the villagers. One role he will take on for NTF is to be the person who makes sure donated goods such as clothing, laptops, mobile phones etc go to the most needy people.
Amadou’s official title is Voluntary Social Worker.
