A renowned Gambian prince, Ebrahim Sanyang, has expressed his philanthropic commitment to help in addressing some of the pressing challenges of Tanji Kambeng Kafo, a community-based association in Tanji consisting of fishmongers and other petty traders.
The association has adopted Prince Ebrahim as its father in cognizance of the man’s commitment to helping underprivileged people and communities around Africa.
Prince Ebrahim is the founder of Prince Ebrahim Future Africa Foundation (PEFAF), an Africa-focused charitable foundation.
The commitment of Prince Ebrahim was renewed to Kambeng Kafo by the project manager of PEFAF, Seedy Darboe, during a meeting with members of the association on Thursday in Tanji.
Mr Darboe said the meeting was to discuss with the members of the association to put in concrete measures in solving their main pressing challenges as the prince is ready and willing to help them.
Mr Darboe said he previously had a meeting with the association but the recent political impasse made it difficult to implement some of the issues discussed at the meeting.
Now that things are normal, he said, “I can you assure of Prince Ebrahim’s swift intervention”.
Tanji fish market is the busiest fish market in The Gambia; it supplies fish to both Gambia and Senegal.
To the members of Kambeng Kafo, the Thursday meeting was to update their adopted father with the challenges that the association is grappling with and seek his generous intervention.
