Some Progress at Last

During the last three months we have successfully planted a food crop, laid a very long hose with a water tap from a neighbours house and made some 4700 bricks. We are now trying to raise funds for a Mason to build the Boundary Fence. This is to protect our tools and the food-crop.

My House Challenge Explained

April 2019 - We are presently homelessIt is April and the wet-season is coming. We have to hurry to finish developing our land so we can protect our crops and prepare to start building a house. Below is the house we were living in. We have since been evicted, because the house was so unsafe and the owners really need it back. We are presently homeless and looking for somewhere to live. It is a worry for us.

October 2018 - Honestly! I am so scared the walls of our house are collapsing. The wet-season rains are leaking down through our roof. The walls of this old house are crumbing. I am scared the roof structure will completely fall on top of me or a member of my family.

I desperately need your help. Please will you help me raise funds to build a new house. You can give me ideas on how to raise funds, or donate directly. I have a special account for saving specifically to build a house.

Crumbling House

Please have a closer look

The walls of this whole house are crumbling, my bed is soaked from rain and the roof is falling down.

I work as an assistant in a small Rice Shop during the day from, 8 am in the morning till 6pm at night, seven days per week. I have my mothers four young children that I look after. The little amount of money I earn funds food for the month, but there is nothing left for anything else. Now with the issues of Rent.... it is hard to find somewhere to live even without water and power. Housing is a big issue for everyone in Brikama and urban Gambia.

My top focus is to somehow build a House.

I have put together a estimated House Plan Budget.

G'Day. Friends call me Lama UC. Click here to see my Lifestyle Plan.

I am the owner of this Urban Colours website here in The Gambia. I have a person who helps me host this site in Australia. We met on Facebook and I have been learning how to make webpages using simple html and css. I have little time but I am studying hard with books that were sent to me. I have no electricity and internet credit is expensive, so I am doing what I can to reach people around the world to please lend me a hand.
