Gambian Emergency Occasional Support (G.O.E.S.) is a micro charity aimed at giving assistance to people in need in The Gambia. We help with medical and educational expenses and are registerd with HMCR for Gift Aid.
We're delighted to see more women driving cars this visit. At least four of our friends are able to drive now - two teachers, a young ex-student and a nurse. They all cope with horrendous road conditions, heavy traffic and stray cattle wandering across the road - and why shouldn't they? The nurse, a Community Health Nurse, rides a 125cc motor bike to visit her patients. I'm happy to find out that she has full safety equipment and a properly serviced, reliable bike. I've not noticed any female taxi drivers yet but it's only a matter of time.
