Self Sufficiency is a Global Need – Women In Gambia Learn Literacy, Health and Economic Self-Sufficieny

It’s Nice To Be Nice(INTBN) is an international organization teaching free literacy, health education and economic self sufficiency to women in Gambia, West Africa and Chicago, Il, USA.They have been teaching literacy since 2009 and also donate goods to families in need.

Victoria Blakey started this program after a short stay in Gambia in 2004. Concerned with the cycle of poverty these uneducated women lived in and seeing girls who were being set up for the same fate encouraged her to get involved and create the change she wanted to see.
