BFiG is really lucky to have MoJo Construction working alongside them on The Busumbala Nursery School Project. MoJo Construction has worked really hard to complete phase one of the project and is now aiming to complete the second classroom in the next few weeks.
MoJo Foundation co-founder John Evans would like to tell how MoJo Construction came into existence.
MoJo Foundation is a charity registered in The Gambia and founded by Morro (“Mo”) Fatty and John (“Jo”) Evans of New Meaning (a UK social enterprise). MoJo Construction is the operating arm.
“We employ up to twenty five workers.”
We employ up to 25 workers, depending on contract size, with a 5% matched donation from their “living” wages. When sufficient funds are saved the original employee may then nominate 2 friends, peers, colleagues for education in construction skills. In this way each trainee enables two more to be trained.
Additionally, we commit to 50% of profits from our construction schemes (after investors repayments, salaries, etc) will be reinvested in The Gambia in further charitable schemes and more social enterprise construction projects.
We have purchased 4 hectares of land near Jambur for our first MoJo Village Community Enterprise scheme: 54 homes, 5 social enterprise businesses, a mosque will be built here employing 250 local people and training over 500 from the sales income. All built with environmentally friendly compressed earth blocks.
