Mucki visited the UK in September. He was here to promote his work in making links between UK schools and colleges and The Gambia. Mucki also works with the Sponsor a Gambian Child charity, run with Carol Kendal-Smith in Thame. Steve travelled to Thame to meet up with Mucki and finally got to meet Carol in person – after many, many phone calls over the past two years. It was really helpful to talk face-to-face together about how the two charities are progressing, and to hear direct from Mucki about some of the day-to-day concerns and successes of school life in The Gambia.
