The Grand Ndogou Initaitive
During the Holy Month of Ramadan, the spirit of giving and sharing takes center stage, and this year, the Q-Group Foundation in The Gambia has once again demonstrated its commitment to this culture of caring and sharing. In a heartwarming gesture, the Foundation embarked on its 14th annual Q-Ndogou initiative, spreading hope and goodwill across the country.
Our Charitable Endeavor
The scope of the Q-Group Foundation’s charitable initiative is truly impressive. Around 200 vulnerable places and institutions were identified and donated to. These include correctional facilities like Janjangbureh Prison, Jeshwang Prison, and the Central Prison Mile II in Banjul, as well as 13 mosques, 10 orphanage organizations, and a remarkable 174 Arabic Schools, known as “daras,” spanning the entire country.
Muhammed Jah, Chairman of the Q-Group, expressed his delight in launching the 14th edition of Q-Ndogou.

This act of charity embodies the month of Ramadan as a time of blessings and giving.
