"We Do What It Say's On The Tin"
Since 2014 GIBC have made real progress as a newly established Charity and our work has made differences to hundreds of lives. Since our inception we have held a number of fundraising/awareness events such as children’s fun days, charity balls, sponsored bike ride from Blackpool to Manchester, sky dives and yoga retreats to name a few. Through the money raised from these events, we have been able to carry out a number of projects, including the Thai Bhurma Project which allowed us to collect approximately 300kg of clothes and health care products, 500 school uniforms and other personal requisites which were distributed to orphanages, schools and villages along the Thai/Burma boarder.
Other projects we have delivered have involved us working with the homeless in Manchester City Centre during the winter months, offering live music, a haircut, hot food and a selection of winter survival items.
Our current project is The People Help The People project. GIBC have purchased 3000m2 of beautiful land in Kiti, Gambia where we have commenced building an eco community for children to go to school and for locals to learn new skills that will provide employment opportunities. A well has been built to aid farming on the land and we have completed phase one of the building project, there are three more buildings that will be built by the end of 2018 with the project due to complete in Summer 2019.
During the time we have been working in the Gambia, the people have become close to our hearts, we have held a number of charitable events, including, Christmas celebrations for children in the Gambia along with presents and stationary packs for school.
All of these projects and your generous contributions, have supported our aim of giving people a reason to smile.
Thank you for your continues support..
