Thanks for the excellent information and links to resources. Great work!
I visited The Gambia at Easter and fell in love with the country. I made many friends and am taking my daughter there at Christmas time. I am a teacher of IT and would dearly love to work in the Gambia someday.
I look forward to my return and meeting my friends again. Thank you for this web page.
My daughter showed`me your web site, because I should have
been in the Gambia this week on holiday but could not go, I
have been there three times and have made good friends with
a family and take clothes and toys and spectacles, medical
supplies to the children of the village,` and I will
definitly be going again in November. I have travelled all
over the world but never found anywhere with such charm as
the Gambia, what I like about it is the unsophistication
and the people are so friendly, its really lovely unspoilt
beaches and countryside. Thank you for giving us this
website it has been wonderful for me. I enjoyed singing the
In ten days I will be leaving for The Gambia to live there for over 2 years. This site is fantastic! Ireally enjoyed the photos, recipies and the information from the Peace Corps Volunteers! Thanks for the great site!

I had no idea I would find such a professional site. Many thanks Andy for a job well done.
I'm very interested in everything about The Gambia. I have my
family there and I'm soon moving there myself. If somone can
offer me a work in The Gambia I will be very happy.
Very useful, my son is doing a school project on the Gambia
Very nice to see GHAMBIA on web.Please expand with new features .
This is a message to Mr. Andy Lyons.
Do you remember me, Mr. Lyons. I was a student in Nusrat
High School, and you taught me Physics in Form 3 (1991-92).
I am now doing a BEng (Hons) degree in Aerospace Engineering.
You have done a good job in making this home page. I found
a flaw while reading these pages, under the PC photo album.
The photograph shown is at Nusrat High School, and NOT at
Bakau. I could recognise Abubakar Camara, Mr. Kanu and Mr.
Anyway. Please write back at my e-mail address: LONG TIME!
It give us great pleasure here at the Pan Afrikan Inter-National Movement to be able to stay abreast of what is happen in the Gambia.We are a back to Africa movement base on the teaching of the Hon. Marcus Garvey and the God and GODDESSES of our ancestors
GOD IS PLEASE
This page is almost like reaching out across the oceans and shaking everybody's hand. It is very comforting to know that there are so many Gambians and friends of the Gambia around. Please keep this page for ever! Thanks.
A job well done! Keep up the good work.
Well, what can i say? Even though Gambia is a small country, it shows that the size of a country doesn't determine it's place on the information super highway. What a website!!! thoroughly enjoyed every section and i hope better things come its way. A current news service would be really good idea to implement. All in all as we gambians say, "AFEREE COOL NA QUOI".
you have to visit the gambia first, to get
the right feeling when you see these pictures.
"My beloved mother is serving in the Peace Corp at The Gambia--and is missed dearly. This wonderful sight helps to put her experience in perspective.
Starting in July I will be stationed for 2 years in The Gambia.
Your site really gave me the information I needed. Thanks again and
I will be visiting you soon.
What a great resourse the language materials are especially valuable to me, thanks for the work
So many of my friends are interested in learning more about my beautiful country...thank you, Andy for your work. Very uplifting. I'm sure to be a regular...and help fill in the gaps! Fanyatoo.
I check frequently for any new info on The GAmbia...thanks for all your effort in creating these resources
I really enjoyed your nice homepage. It is nearly excellent.
And I say nearly, because some websites as the government home
page of Gambia, were not accesible while i was trying to connect.
I also want to say that Gambia needs democracy and really
democratic elections.It is something that industrialized countries like U.S.
should help it.The current government of Gambia should do something to help poor children and i think that major international organizations like UN,
ought to help,especially in sectors as education.
Great site! It's been a while since I've had good domoda!
Now if I could only convince the women to whip up a batch!
Very helpful for my school report.
Very nice homepage... Keep on the good work.
I HAVE FAMILY FROM GAMBIA AND I AM VERY CURIOUS TO LEARN AS MUCH AS I CAN ABOUT MY FAMILIES COUNTRY, BEING A FIRST GENERATION GAMBIAN-AMERICAN. I AM ALSO INTERESTED IN JOINING THE PEACE CORP. I AM CURRENTLY A STUDENT AT RIT AND WOULD LOVE VERY MUCH TO BE ABLE TO VISIT GAMBIA AGAIN. IT MADE ME VERY HAPPY TO SEE SO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT GAMBIA ON THE WEB. I HAVE A TON OF HOMEWORK TO DO BUT I AM TOO EXCITED ABOUT MY NEW DISCOVERY THAT I HAVE TO FIND OUT AS MUCH AS I CAN. A CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE FOLKS OF THIS WEB PAGE WOULD BE GREAT. ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT I AM THE NEW PRESEIDENT FOR THE ORGANIZATION OF AFRICAN STUDENTS ON THIS COLLEGE CAMPUS, I WANT TO BE ABLE TO SHARE AS MUCH AS I CAN WITH THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ORGANIZATION. THANK YOU FOR THIS INFORMATION. I HOPE IT PERSISTS.
This is the most informative site with information about my Beloved
country. I will surely tell all my friends to visit it any time
for more recent information.Thanks for making my day worthwhile,I will
always visit this site.For the Gambians and Gambia lovers out there

experiences and learn about yours too.So dorp me an e-mail

Don't know what to expect, but your site gave me
some good information. Thanks, and keep on building!
Thank you all you beautiful people who put this website together,my boyfriend is a Gambian a
and I am looking forward to go to Gambia with him someday in the near future. Good job overall.
A very informative web site. We enjoyed our visit to The Gambia 2/96 and your site brings back fond memories.
My daughter picked Gambia to do a class report. We have found the research very informative. Will visit you again soon. By!
This ia a very impressive page.Keep up the good work.
Hello Andy - finally got to your site...haven't checked out the whole thing yet but certainly will..all the best from Namibia......miss those friday nights at the crazy Irishman's place......GC
Abenyadi mbare nke!/Muso!
Thanks for making this page available in the net! First class
appreciation on my side!
I have always teased my fiance, who is actually a Mandinga, that The Gambia
is smaller than my little finger. What he doesn't know is that I steal
Gambian food recipes from your page of which I'm such a great fan!
Personally I'm Kenyan by blood, spirit and soul but I can't wait to come and settle in
The Gambia in 1998 August. The only problem as per now is that I have tried to get a job in The Gambia
without success. I am currently majoring in Administration and
Organization Theory at the University of Bergen, Norway. I also have undergraduate courses in Mass
Communication, Social Pedagogy (Education) Reseach Methodolgy, Philosophy and Administration.
If anyone can consider me useful in areas such as development, policy, education,
administration, public relations and planning, I would be very honoured to accept the offer.
I also choose to mention that I am flexible and willing to accept any other offers.
I,d be glad to hear from you. My e-mail address is:email@example.com
Abaraka and fonyatu/mbenjojela!
Nice very nice
Recently returned from 20 yr reunion trip to TG
I was in The Gambia for about 7 months as a Canadian Crossroads International volunteer in 1989/90. Since I have been unable to afford a return visit, its great to have web sites like yours to visit. The sound files of the anthem were a good touch. I hope you add more multimedia, like sound files in the future. The guestbook is also an excellant interactive touch.
I am just trying to find material for my presentation about Gambia. It was nice to find this page and hear your comments about this beautiful country. I hope to get there one day. Have a nice time! BYE BYE!
My husband is Gambian, so we are always interested in news.
Golly Geez willickers Andy. You rock! Great site. Hilty's Domadah was OK, I'll send a new one on soon
I would like to have a peanut butter recipe
The site is really interesting, when you need any information (I am going to visit Gambia within 2 weeks and I Did not know what to expect.
no comment at this time, have to familiarize myself first with this web-site
The Gambia is great, I promise you, I have been there!
Miss you, Mustapha.C!
the web page has sweet info. thanks!!!!!
Sitting here in our school's (Helsinki Business Polytechnic) computer class, I decided to find out if there is anything written about the country which has a special place in my heart! Having been married to a Gambian and having visited the Gambia one time (Dec -93)I can most warmheartedly recommend the country as a place to visit or stay a longer time if possible. The people there were extremely friendly and always lending a helping hand for a foreigner! The beautiful nature and all those big family happenings like weddings and naming ceremonies of the newborn babies will stay in my memory for lifetime. And all the Gambian students all over the world, keep up with your good work and make the country prosper with your help! P.S. Thanks for these web-pages, they were really interesting!!

I am from Senegal and I applaud your effort to put the information out there!!!!!
Excellent and informative page - and it looks ncie too!
I'm visiting Gambia for the first time from April 24th and wanted to get some decent info.
Anyone who can give me any more useful info - or meet up while me and my girlfriend are there (24-31 April), please email me.
CONGRATULATIONS FOR YOUR ATTEMPT AND KEEP ON TRYING!I WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO YOUR PAGE, IF POSSIBLE.
I WAS AMONG THOSE FIRST GROUP OF STUDENTS WHO WENT TO STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES AND ONE OF THE FOUR UNIVERSITIES I ATTENDED WAS TUSKEGEE INSTITUTE IN ALABAMA. WHILST THERE,I USED TO BROWSE THROUGH THE OLD TEXTS AND GUESS WHAT I FOUND!AN INFORMATION THAT I REFUSED TO RELEASE IN WRITTEN FORM BECAUSE IT WOULD START BLOODSHED BETWEEN CASAMANCE AND SENEGAL!
ALTHOUGH OTHER GAMBIANS SUCH AS JABOU JOH, SAIDY CHAM(G.U.C),SAIHOU TAAL,AMAT GAYE(owner-holiday village hotel),WERE ALSO STUDENTS AT THE SAME PERIOD, I WAS THE ONLY GAMBIAN IN ONE OF THE LITERATURE COURSES THERE.
FROM ONE OF THE TEXTS WE USED,A DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE SHOWED THAT A WOLLOF MAN HAD INDEED RULED AND ESTABLISHED A DYNASTY IN INDIA(YES,I N D I A !)!
DETAILS OF THIS AND OTHER FACTS TO BE PUBLISHED LATER(INSHALLAH).
THE PERIOD IN QUESTION WAS WHEN WEST AFRICA WAS DIVIDED INTO KINGDOMS--AND WHAT IS TODAY SENEGAL AND GAMBIA WAS PARTITIONED INTO THE KINGDOMS OF JOLLOF,BAOL,SIIN(SERER),SALOUM,WAALOH,KAYOR AND SO FORTH!
A magnificent web site, very informative for both Gambians and other interested persons.
Thanks for all the resources invested on this masterpiece and KEEP UP THE GOOD AND HARD
WORK. I have been wondering whether there exists any published Gambian fairy tales (written
and/or cartoon forms) with possible animation for "children's TV". This could be a very
useful resource for GAMTV, Radio Gambia, Gambian children residing outside Gambia...etc.
JUST A DREAM I WOULD LIKE TO SEE COME THROUGH.
ALL THE BEST OF WISHES, ANDY!!
I was researching for more information for a presentataion for a
junior high school students in MA, when I came accross this web page.
Thanks for a job well done.
