PAGEANT - "Education is the future"

Pippa's Gambian trip, 15-29 November 2005

home > news > Gambia trip Nov 2005

In November 2005, Pippa spent two weeks in The Gambia, and visited a large number of Pageant's projects. This is her report on that visit. It is a very long report and has about 150 pictures. It would take a long time to download - even on broadband, so we have therefore split it into sections, which can be accessed using the list below.
