This is a job well done. It's very impressive!! I was looking for some Gambian related material to show to some friends. This is a site I'll recommend my friends to visit. It answered a lot of questions I get asked daily.

Keep up the good work!!

What an excellent web site!! Good work to all those people who were involved. I loved seeing names like Andy Lyons and Brian Hubbard, who provided the site with a wealth of knowledge and creativity. It made me very homesick!! good work..

This is an insurmountable amount of information marshalled about tiny but friendly Gambia. I find it extremely resourceful in many facets of the country, the people, and the general geography. Finally I can tell some of my friends to visit a Gambian website that is incredibly informative. Thanks a lot for your services.......... "Go Gators!!!!"

Layed out really nicely with real,factual information. I can
personally vouch for many of the things said, specially about
the Peace Corps Scholarship Fund.

As the fund administrator
for the year 1995-96, it made me feel "evil" every time I had
to say no to a deserving student since we had such limited

At last, someone has finally created a very excellent
webpage about The Gambia not just a junk page containing
very little useful information. This is the webpage for anyone who
wants some credible information about The Gambia, be it a
potential tourist or a student.

Keep it up!

little country. Keep up the good work!!
