Samaritana started in 2015 reaching out to girls who are hustling in the infamous SeneGambia tourist strip

From there it grew into making Recycled plastic water bags, then Rag bags, then Recyclable Sanitary kits, all the while visiting the local brothels to show love to the girls there.

2 Interns in 2017 who took things to the next step and that was doing 3 week presentations in schools, where we quickly uncovered a high degree of sexual abuse both by staff and in local communities.

After years of fighting to get Memorandum of Understandings with some Government departments amidst demands for fast fast money from their people, we now have 3 years later MOU with the Education and DSW, the Police and the support of the local Bakau community. The Field Workers team is now 5.

God provided an excellent compound and The Samaritana Board (which is Gambian controlled now) in 2018 agreed to purchase it. We provide accommodation as requested by victims, police and family.

We also run a Free Community Library there with 1500 books, provide occupational and small group Rehabilitation using Play, Dance, Puppets, Water and Song Poems and other forms of Therapy.

In 2020, after our fast promoted Intern to Investigator to Team Leader to CEO’s instigation, a parallel Samaritana was started in Liberia because of our reception there by a number of young women’s organisations who were desperate for a Safe House. we have established begin to Reach, Rescue, Rehabilitate, Redeem Victims and Survivors, as well as prosecuting Offenders. The Team numbers 5
