As a global network, we gather information on current development projects, stakeholders (national and international) and the recipient groups or communities in The Gambia. We advise, support and work with stakeholders (national and international) to make projects successful and sustainable. Our Code of Conduct is our guiding principle and policy and is binding on all our members and partners .
Our motto is commitment and consistency, honesty, accountability and transparency, tolerance and respect for diversity.
