    Hand in Hand e. V We are an association that supports the promotion of self-help projects for people in Africa. The projects primarily focus on sustainability and the fastest possible transfer of responsibility to local actors. Hand in Hand eV was founded in 2014 and since then has successfully completed numerous agricultural projects. Giving local people a perspective and the opportunity to improve their livelihood by growing fruit and vegetables is our main focus. There is nothing worse than suffering from hunger and thirst. Through many statistics we know how many people die from malnutrition. With your support, we want to give more families and villages access to clean water. For us, water is as normal as the air we breathe, but a rare commodity in many parts of the world. Our work in Germany and our visits in the country are financed by our members, so that 100% of membership fees and donations benefit the projects in Africa.

  • Gambia | Hand in Hand e. V.Gambia https://kerstintenschert.wixsite.com/handinhandev/en/gambia

    GAMBIA Interesting facts about Gambia The Gambia is located on the west coast of the African continent and, at 11,295 km², is its smallest area state with a length of about 480 kilometers and a width of only about 50 kilometers. Apart from the coast, the Gambia is surrounded by Senegal, which is twenty times larger and has a total of 2.3 million inhabitants. ​ The climate is tropical with a distinct rainy and dry season. The dry season lasts from November to May. The geographical position of the country, combined with the extensive wetlands, ensures a large number of diverse plant species. Approximately 530 different plant species are known in the Gambia. However, there is a lack of water, technology and money for sensible seed for productive agriculture. There is currently no state health system in the Gambia. People have to pay for every medical service themselves. If they can raise the money for the doctor, then that is usually of no use to them, since there is no money for prescribed medication. Due to the prevailing bitter poverty, large parts of the population are hardly able or not at all able to pay for medical treatment or therapy. ​ The Gambia cannot offer commercially attractive sights or animal safaris, the secret attraction is the people, their colorful culture and the multitude of different bird species. It is definitely recommended for tourists to leave the hotel complex and go inland. Here, however, you should definitely pay attention to the cloths you wear . If possible, men should not go out on the street without outer clothing and in shorts, women should not wear shorts or skirts. ​ Gambia's currency is the Dalasi, its sub-unit is called Butut. Since a currency decline combined with ever more expensive goods prevails, the butut can only be found in exceptional cases. In The Gambia, a colorful variety of ethnic groups live peacefully side by side. The Gambians are very friendly people who will do their best to strike up a conversation with a stranger. The largest population group is that of the Mandinka with a share of about 40 percent, followed by the Fulbe and the Wolof. A share of a quarter is distributed among the remaining ethnic groups. The be-all and end-all in The Gambia is greeting! If you observe the locals, you can see that the greeting rituals are very extensive. Extensive questions are asked about how the women, the mother and the children are doing. The greeting is a sign of respect. The official language since independence has been English. In the coastal region one can communicate well in English. In the hinterland you sometimes have to search a little longer until you find someone who understands English. ​ Since many different ethnic groups live in Gambia, who are mainly defined by their own language, they speak several languages fluently or at least can make themselves understood in them. Over 20 different languages are spoken in the small country of The Gambia. The most common is the Mandinka. The Gambia's population is 90 percent Muslim, 9 percent Christian, and about 1 percent adheres to traditional African religions. There is a calm and peaceful coexistence between all religions. The Gambia is a secular state that encourages respect for all cultural and traditional values. This condition guarantees freedom for all to practice the religion of their choice.

  • Project | Hand in Hand e. V.Project https://kerstintenschert.wixsite.com/handinhandev/en/s-projects-side-by-side

    About our project work Our association was founded on June 1st, 2014 and since then has been working hand in hand with the local people, looking for solutions and opportunities to implement agricultural projects. Helping people to help themselves always comes first in anything we do. We are regularly visiting The Gambia and have initiated and successfully implemented numerous projects. Since 2018 we have been working with the Gambian partner association "Farmers for Change Association" (FFCA). With our guidance and support, FFCA was able to advance the upcoming organization and planning of the projects on site. There is still a lot to learn about the billing and bookkeeping of the projects, but they are on the right track. This requires, our steady committment to help, time and explanation of the importance of these processes.. ​ By promoting agricultural self-sufficiency, we want to show people a perspective and a way forward. We see it as our task to show the population, especially the young people in the less touristy areas, a chance for a better life in Gambia and thus contain the causes of flight. We are also fighting for this here in Germany. ​ Through various photo exhibitions and information evenings, we point out the conditions and plight of the people in the Gambia. The many successes of our work are also presented at these events. The women's gardens are more important than ever, especially with the immense price increases on all essential products. The basic requirements for a garden are the same for all projects. A borehole or well with associated pump, solar panels, a water tower, water basins, pipes to the water basins and a fence are required. The costs are not affordable for the residents, so we take it on as an association and finally hand over the project to the village. ​ An island turns green, Jinack Island Our current project is located on Jinack Island. In February 2024 we gave our OK, in March the area was fenced in and in April the first water (30 m) came out of the borehole. All further work is planned until the end of 2024. But for that we need your support . Read more Completed Projects Read more

  • Gartenproject on Jinack Island | Hand in Hand e. V.Gartenproject on Jinack Island https://kerstintenschert.wixsite.com/handinhandev/en/gartenprojekt-missiranding

    An island turns green, Jinack Island The approximately thirteen-kilometer-long narrow and 700-meter-wide island is located north of the town of Barra and extends to the border of Senegal. The side facing away from the sea is separated from the mainland by the 50-meter-wide Bolong (river), so that one can hardly speak of an island. There are extensive mangrove forests on all of the waters. The village elder contacted our local manager some time ago, explained the dramatic situation and asked for support. In the spring of 2023, our club president looked at the local conditions and discussed the next steps with the village elder. We made no promises because we still had an ongoing project. We only start a project when the financing is in place. At the end of February 2024, we were able to bring the families of Jinack Island the joyful news of their own family garden. At the time, a trip organised by Kerstin for a range of sponsors and reports was on site, which delivered the news. The joy was huge. The land of 150 x 150 meters was fenced in no time. By the end of March, the fence construction work was completed and at the beginning of April, water gushed from the 30-meter-deep borehole. The depth was necessary because salt water still lies at 25 meters. The four villages that belong to the island are very far from any tourism and the local markets. Even for clean drinking water, long distances must be covered every day. We are even more pleased that water is finally gushing. For the remaining work such as water tanks, water tower and the cultivation of the beds to be completed by the end of the year, we still need your support. With only 5 euros as start-up capital for seeds , you can support the families. We buy it directly on site and thus also support the local market. Please take action now. Donate and lets come together.
