After a week in The Gambia, and be back home I realise what an impressive fieldtrip it was. We had a warm welcome by the WFP and the Gambian people. We had several meetings, so we know how the UN/WFP organisation works. We visited the Sea Port, Customs, Clearing and forwarding agents, transporters and the warehouse. We got a general idea of the supply chain. Also we visited two schools, an urban and an rural school, these schools received rice from WFP. The children are so lovely and give us an warm welcome, they were so happy that we visited their school. To give food to the children was very special for me, I was touched.
We had meetings with the UNAIDS, North Star Alliance and an EU commission member. All these meetings give a good impression of their work in The Gambia.
In 5 days, we saw so many things but what especially has become clear : WFP is doing a very good job in The Gambia.
These 6 days will be in my mind forever, all regards to WFP The Gambia en all the members of TNT fieldtrip 2011.
