In the village of Tintinto, the Gambia, West-Africa, an eco buildingproject is taking place. Bonnie Vooijs, Adama Jallow and their friends in the Gambia are building a house in eco style made out of used car tires. The building of the 10 x 14 m house started in August 2011. Here you’ll find stories and pictures of the building project, a green Gambia and more. Picture: Bonnie and Adama “mama Africa”.

My neighbour Mariama came to visit me and without hesitation offered to help clean the kitchen from paint, cement, varnish and what-not. I’m grateful to have a neighbour like her. She is a wonderful, warm woman who always makes me laugh and, I must say it; this woman can clean!! If I had only half of her strength..
