Operating a Trust Fund for Girl’s Education

The Gambia Committee on Traditional Practices Affecting the Health of Women and Children (GAMCOTRAP) is a women’s rights organization. GAMCOTRAP has been the leading women’s rights NGO in the Gambia working tirelessly in the area of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and Children. Prominent among these is the campaign against harmful traditional practices affecting the health of women and children especially the girl child.

Among the harmful traditional practices affecting women, special emphasis is given to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and the gender dimensions of HIV/AIDS. This campaign is undertaken through advocacy and effective social mobilization at the grassroots level in various local languages.

For the past twenty years, the organization has been working immensely in trying to create awareness about harmful traditional practices and women’s empowerment, focusing on sexuality and gender based violence. In recent years Gender and Rights Education have been included in our strategies for social mobilization.
