Meet Franco, Alhagie Saho

Member since: February 2016

Hello, we are Franco, Alhagie Saho. We are born in Jakaba in Gambia’s countryside. At a very young age we started looking for a better future for our family and ourselves. We have worked in a guesthouse for some time where we have met many people from around the world. This has taught us a lot. Ten years ago we got in contact with a couple of people from the Netherlands. With them we have set-up several projects with the goal to give children a chance to build a future. Franco speaks English and Dutch and Alhagie speaks English. We would love to show you our Gambian way of life and to learn from each other. We are looking forward to welcome you!
