Muslims around the world celebrate, Eid el-Kebir, the Feast of Sacrifice, known in The Gambia as Tobaski. Families in the Senegambia region in West Africa travel great distances and spend more money than they actually have to be together for this celebration. Tobaski is a religious holiday, but aside from the brief prayer said before the sacrifice, this didn’t feel very religious either.

No doubt, the Tobaski party in London gather together families and friends to spend quality time with one another. Love is expressed through the sharing of food, and all put on fancy clothes to remind one another that every once in a while we can party.

  • Gambia United Society Magazine

    Welcome to a new chapter in the history of The Gambia United Society, what a great way to kick off a new year by introducing GUS Magazine (GUSMAG), a new  publication ready to promote excitement in this fascinating society of ours.  Whether you’re a reader seeking relevant information, a researcher seeking more knowledge or someone just looking for the latest Senegambian related news, GUSMAG will have something for everyone.  We will provide material that will inspire as well as motivate from some of Gambia’s best journalists and writers in The UK and elsewhere.

    The community wants to hear from people in the know, what they are doing, their thoughts, accomplishments and more importantly their fallers. All that information would help strengthen our organisation, the Gambia United Society and propel it forward with more successes.  
    Please contact GUS secretariat for more details.

  • Our Special Funds Appeals

    Voluntary Trust Fund

    GUS is run by volunteers who are members and their contributions. Our main source of funds is contribution paid by members. We use organise cultural musical shows by bringing Senegambian artists from Africa over to the UK to promote our culture and raise funds at the same time. We organise annual events such as summer barbeques, family fun days and Eid Parties for fun and income generation as well.

    Repartriation Fund

    Recently, we have been contacted for help by families whose relatives have died and wish to send the body back home for burial as preferred in The Gambian community. This is inevitable and cost no less than £3000. We've set up a special fund for this to which people can contribute. This would ensure there are available funds for use in the inevitable event of death of a member in the UK and the body is needed to be sent back to the Gambia for burial.

    We are appealing to all Gambians and non-Gambians alike to help us raise needed funds in order to meet our charity objectives. We appreciate all contributions our volunteers and sponsors are making geared towards improving the lives of many vulnerable people while promoting Gambian Culture .

    Become a member or make a gift

    Our membership is open to all Gambians and friends of The Gambia. We wish to hear from everyone and anyone who has The Gambia at heart. Contact us today and register to become a member.

    Help fund a project

    You can donate to a specific project, for example the malaria project and keep up to date with the project development. £5.00 would buy a mosquito net and you could save the life of a child in The Gambia.

    Donate goods

    You could support us by donating us unwanted computers, books and clothes suitable for reuse. These items are as good as new to the people receiving them and would go a long way in improving their livelihood.

  • GUS REPORT Presented at 2013 AGM

    This report highlights how we are currently performing and the ways we are working to improve our services. Over the years, the organisation has worked hard to improve in all areas of operation in spite of the challenges we faced, mostly due to lack of funds. We are determined to move to higher heights and reach out to as many people as possible to make the GUS more national.

    On the financial front, we are operating on limited funds. We have made long-term investments in anticipation that the Charity will become self-sustainable in the coming years.
