About The Gambia

Gambia is a narrow, 400-km-long riverside enclave that virtually divides Senegal´s Casamance from the rest of the country. It is home to 30 People Groups, 16 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Mandinka who live along the Gambia River. They believe in Islam but it has been heavily blended with their traditional beliefs. Islam is the dominate religion in Gambia but it is a more mild form than that practiced in other parts of North Africa so Christianity is somewhat tolerated.

Christian Aid support indigenous ministers focusing on the various Islamic people of Gambia.
