STICHTING CARE FOR NATURAL AND THE LOCAL TRAINING CENTER CARE FOR NATURAL HAVE A CONSTANT FOCUS TO LIFT PEOPLE FROM POVERTY IN A COUNTRY WHERE POVERTY AND MASSIVE UNEMPLOYMENT ARE A FACT OF LIFE. BY PROCESSING LOCAL NATURAL PRODUCTS INTO VALUE ADDED END PRODUCTS, CREATING TRADE IS POSSIBLE AND PEOPLE CAN CREATE THEIR OWN INCOME. THE MAIN GOAL IS TO CREATE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.
Here’s how we try to achieve this goal:
We seek to expand markets and increase accessibility.
We invent new products from locally available ingredients, so they can be sold on local markets but can also be exported abroad.
Lasting structural solutions are being found together for daily problems.
We provide daily assistance to a team of dedicated women, in their own language.
We give The Gambian women insight in how they can create their own income, so they can provide their families the basic necessities of life.
We are locally present with a board member who lives in The Gambia since 1994 and speaks the local language. This makes it easier to recognize the underlying problems. This prevents projects fail because of cultural differences.
Each season we store harvest, so products can be processed in the most favorable time which guarantees enough work for the whole year.
