The foundation works from the head office in Hoogeveen (NL) and a warehouse in Serakunda in The Gambia. In the Netherlands, the packages that needs to be sent are collected from all delivery points, where they are stickered and prepared for transport in the container.
Containers from the Netherlands are received in Serakunda. The packages are handed over here to the friends and family and are stored for the senders from the Netherlands.
In the warehouse in Serakunda 4 Gambian board members work for the, in Gambia foreign, St. Goods for Gambia (foundation). They take care of the clearance and transport of the container to the unloading location, the issuance of the packages and any transport to the addressee, the maintenance of the warehouse, the creation of PR for the foundation, the checking of current projects and of course contacts with the various ministries.
