The Gambia is a small country in West Africa, which includes the Island of Saint Mary, at the mouth of the Gambia, where the capital, Banjul, stands, and James Island, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is known for its diverse ecosystems around the central Gambia River and for its abundant wildlife in Kiang West National Park and Bao Bolong Pantanal Reserve, which includes monkeys, leopards, hippos, hyenas and rare birds.

However, there is still a lot of poverty, especially in rural areas.

We know that - along with education - housing, basic sanitation, health and good nutrition are necessary for children to have a healthy life and a good level of learning.

These basis are fundamental not only for efficient learning, but for any child to acquire a feeling of respect and love for their surroundings. And love teaches us to respect the space of other species that have been losing their habitat to us, humans.

The Gambia's biodiversity is incredibly good not only for the planet, but for the country itself, because, in addition to providing valuable quality of life for Gambians, it promotes tourism, which represents an important segment of The Gambia's economy.

Considering these issues, we ask The Gambian Government to expand investments in affordable housing, basic sanitation, health and education - also implementing a universal basic income for vulnerable people: requiring, however, a vasectomy and/or endoceptive for those who already have one child (two children per couple) and want to benefit from the income.

We also ask a lifetime fine to the middle and upper classes, proportional to income, from the third child onwards - in order to help supply these needs and to protect the gorgeous environment of The Gambia.

The planet needs to breathe and all humans need quality of life - including Gambians.

Thank you for your support!
