Most enterprises working in the waste management field utilize inappropriate collection technology. Often the operation of waste collection and transport technology is too expensive, so that the poor cannot pay for the service. As a result waste is accumulating on the streets and presents a potential health risk for the people.

    The Gambia Women’s Initiative is a project that spun off from Power Up Gambia’s project at Sulayman Junkung General Hospital. As part of the close connection with the town of Bwiam, several volunteers with Power Up Gambia wanted to work on projects directly with the village womens group to help financially poor women in The Gambia increase their income, thereby improving the standard  of living for their families and their communities.  They formed GWI, and brought on an experienced women’s development coordinator, Isatou Ceesay, to help organize
    and run the projects.
