Inspirational Gambia

Grundstück in Tujereng, Gambia

It was really strange. As if out of nowhere, a picture appeared in my mind with five round houses that I was supposed to build. This happened in January 2019 and I was on my first trip to Gambia.

A vision out of nowhere

In order to check this vision, I traveled to Gambia again in April 2019 and to the north of Senegal for 14 days. The image solidified. I was bubbling over with ideas and the concept took shape.

In April 2019 I was looking for a plot of land with Baba Sillah. We have already met some real estate companies. Near a well-known fishing village, we found the perfect property, not far from the main road: 1000 m2 of sandy soil, 150 m from the flat, pristine sandy beach, only separated by a dune with bushes. A big advantage in terms of erosion.

The purchase was made quickly and I can now call myself Tujereng, landowner in Gambia. What a day, what a joy!

You can find out more about our vision in the article “Vision einer Seestädterin in Afrika” on or in the workflow (from page 14) “Die Mutmacherin”.
