You can see how they have developed over the years from the initial training in 2010-14 raising funds ` variety of ways, including creating local photobooks and calendars about my home town of Malvern back in 2012 to their very thorough training beginning Nov 2017 as shown here

They are obviously meeting great difficulties this season with few tourist able to travel but they are still able to offer their unique experiences to fellow Gambians and those who live permanently in The Gambia but mainly experience the coastal life.

They deserve recognition for the excellence, persistence and determination.
