Methodist Mission Agricultural Program
The Methodist Mission Agricultural Programme (MMAP) is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) of Methodist Church The Gambia. Our strategy focuses is on the mitigation of Climate Change by planting trees of high canopy for income generation in the community, through the sale of cashew nuts and mangoes.
We are now engaged in self-help micro projects such as a Processing Center, Bantang-Bantabaa Restaurant, a Well-Digging programme and the Methodist Farm and Tree Nursery. With these small units we finance other activities within the organization.
