Kingfisher Trust, a non-government registered charity organisation in The Gambia, has donated sewing machines and materials to three villages in Niamina, MacCarthy Island Division.

The villages, Wellingara Ello, Jessadi and Medina Njugary, received sewing machines, uniforms and materials over the weekend in the presence of chief Samba Ngado Ceesay of Dankunku.

According to Simon B. Wezel, the Trust Liason officer and organising secretary, the machines will help the women to learn sewing and generate income for themselves.

Mr. Wezel added that his Trust is aware of problem encountered by rural people especially women and children. This vulnerable group, he explained, deserves every possible help and that the Trust will continue to help them as that is the only way to improve their lot.

Mr. Wezel explained that their activities in The Gambia are mainly centred in the rural areas where they teach and train people in self-employed skills, to stem the tide of the rural urban migration.He

thanked William Nicholson from Higham Ferrers Northerns, Laura at
St. Andrews in Bedford and Rushmoor school, all in England, for helping the Trust.

Mr. Batch S. Jallow said the Trust is really a worthwhile organisation and that the people will make good use of the materials donated to them.
