Why We Chose Sambuyang, Gambia

Introduction to Our Philanthropic Efforts

For over ten years, All Around Tampa Paver Services has been working hard to offer reliable paver sealing, installation, and repair services in Palm Harbor, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, Florida. Alongside our business, we’ve always felt a strong pull towards giving back. Our time spent working in Gambia has deeply touched us, inspiring us to give back to the people of Sambuyang. This heartfelt connection motivates us to support the community in meaningful ways and show our appreciation.

Connection to the Community

Our business (Banyan Bay Trading) in Gambia has always been more than just a commercial venture; it has been a partnership based on mutual respect and gratitude. We recognized the opportunity to extend our thanks to the community by investing in their future. This gratitude translated into tangible actions such as building schools, sponsoring local events, drilling boreholes for fresh water, and constructing family residences. Each project was driven by our desire to contribute to the well-being and development of Sambuyang.

The Kindness of the Gambian People

One of the most remarkable aspects of our experience in Sambuyang has been the unwavering kindness and generosity of its people. Despite the challenging conditions many of them face, the residents of Sambuyang have shown us immense hospitality and warmth. Their spirit of community and happiness, even in the face of adversity, has been a source of inspiration for our philanthropic efforts. The people of Sambuyang have taught us that true wealth lies in the strength of the human spirit and the willingness to support one another.

By sharing our journey, we hope to shine a light on the incredible resilience and generosity of the Gambian people and to encourage others to find ways to give back to communities in need.

Our Ongoing Projects and Their Impact

Schools Built

Education is a cornerstone for any community’s development, and in Sambuyang, Gambia, it is no different. Over the years, we have constructed multiple schools to provide the children of Sambuyang with access to quality education. These schools have become vital centers for learning and growth, offering a safe and supportive environment for students. By investing in education, we hope to empower the next generation with the knowledge and skills they need to build a brighter future for themselves and their community.

Event Sponsorships

Community engagement is essential for fostering a sense of unity and cultural preservation. We have had the privilege of sponsoring numerous events in Sambuyang, ranging from cultural festivals to local sports tournaments. These events play a significant role in bringing the community together, celebrating their rich traditions, and promoting social cohesion. Our support for these events reflects our commitment to enhancing the cultural and social fabric of Sambuyang.

Boreholes for Fresh Water

Access to clean and safe drinking water is a fundamental necessity that many in Sambuyang previously struggled with. To address this critical need, we have drilled several boreholes throughout the community. These boreholes provide a reliable source of fresh water, drastically improving the health and well-being of the residents. The availability of clean water has not only reduced the incidence of waterborne diseases but also alleviated the daily burden of water collection, allowing community members to focus on other productive activities.

Family Residences

A safe and stable home is the foundation for a healthy and prosperous life. Recognizing the importance of adequate housing, we have constructed six small family residences in Sambuyang. These homes offer shelter and security to families, providing them with a dignified living space. The impact of these residences extends beyond the immediate recipients, fostering a sense of stability and hope within the broader community.

Our ongoing projects in Sambuyang reflect our deep commitment to making a positive and lasting impact. Through these initiatives, we strive to support the community’s growth and development, ensuring that the benefits of our efforts are felt for generations to come.

Continuing Our Mission of Kindness

Future Goals

As we look to the future, our commitment to Sambuyang, Gambia, remains steadfast. We are dedicated to continuing our efforts to support and uplift this wonderful community. Our future goals include expanding our educational initiatives by building more schools and enhancing existing facilities. We also aim to drill additional boreholes to ensure that more residents have access to fresh water. Moreover, we plan to construct more family residences, providing safe and stable homes for those in need. Our focus will always be on projects that bring the most significant and lasting benefits to the people of Sambuyang.

Encouraging Others to Give Back

Philanthropy has been a deeply rewarding experience for us, and we believe in the power of collective effort. We encourage everyone to find ways to give back to their communities, whether locally or globally. Acts of kindness, no matter how small, can make a significant difference in the lives of others. By sharing our story, we hope to inspire others to contribute to causes they are passionate about and to help create a better world for all.


None of our projects in Sambuyang would have been possible without the support and collaboration of numerous individuals and organizations. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our partners, both in Gambia and back home, whose unwavering support has been instrumental in our efforts. We also thank the residents of Sambuyang for their trust and collaboration, which have made our projects truly meaningful. Our journey is a testament to what can be achieved when we come together with a shared purpose and a commitment to kindness.
