We had a whole host of eager little volunteers at this particular village, where we camped overnight whilst on the last leg of the River Gambia Expedition.

So, today’s BIG shout out to the Kemoto Point kids – and all the other kids we met along the way – for their help in giving us a hand to say thank you to those donors who got involved in our ‘An Exchange’ and ‘Kickstarter’ fundraising campaigns.
