The Gambia Disability Impact Trust Fund
It is an initiative founded by Bliss Executives, Heeno Foundation, Taf Africa Foundation and The Gambia Federation of Disables with an objective to support persons with disability in the Gambia to gain access to capacity building, business development and most especially access to finance. A sum of $21,300 has been raised to kick start this initiative. The funds will be given to the participants as loans, through a micro finance institution, after they have received trainings on business and entrepreneurship from us. The funds are earmarked for participant’s income generating activities only. We have financed 40 individuals and 45% of them are women.
