Meet Franco, Alhagie Saho

Ask a question

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!


Location


Great place to stay - we had a wonderful 3 nights here. The food was great, everyone was very flexible, there was plenty of advice about what to see and where to go. Tanje is a great place to explore with an amazing fishing beach and great museum, catching taxis was easy from near the house and Franco was always willing to arrange transport as well. The accommodation was very good and very comfortable with plenty of space for the 5 of us.
