How To Register & Start A Charity Or NGO In Gambia


Solie Law Chambers provide legal advice to groups, charities, associations & organisations in The Gambia.

There are various different types of groups. In this context we are not using the word with any legal meaning but just to signify a collection of people who have got together for some purpose.

They may be an entirely informal association, they may have set up a club and set up a constitution or they may even have some form of corporate structure. Usually, the aims of the organisation are not commercial.
