Building Bridges: London to Gambia

This is our Group Fundraising page. Individually, we each must raise £1000. Please mention the person's name you are making the donation for! Thank you!

I Know I Can

We are a collective group of diverse individuals; young talented academics, entrepreneurs and community leaders. As a group we are dedicated to working both holistically and effectively to strengthen and empower members of our community in every way that we are skilled and equipped to do. Simply put, we are a family, united by a shared passion - to be selfless and to be successful.

Our Story

As a team of young professionals, we work together to think ‘outside of the box’ and provide community groups, organisations and services with fresh new perspectives, striving for the previously unthinkable. We tackle challenges and support existing groups in order to see communities flourish. We have brought forward our passions as individuals to create our mission: I Know I Can believe every young person should have the platform, the support and the opportunity to be empowered. We believe that the passions of young people need to be nurtured and that all our children should be free to explore all matters of the earth; fully resourced and informed. We believe that communities must work holistically to tackle problems from the grass roots up with everyone’s best interest at heart.

We want to create an “I Know I Can…” culture where dreams are dreamt, beliefs are championed and achievements are celebrated.

Support us!

This September the I Know I Can family will be embarking on a huge challenge. We will be travelling to Gambia in West Africa to deliver a community development project. We will be working with schools, orphanages, hospitals, nurseries, community groups and villages. Our vision for this summer project is to build global bridges and work towards nurturing the lives of young people and the community through co-created activities and collaborative working.

You can contribute by making a donation, which will support in funding this journey, or by donating resources such as clothes or books etc. Alternatively, you can offer your prayers and best wishes in hope for a fruitful journey.

Thank you so much for reading!

We hope you can support us and spread the word,
I Know I Can
