Queen Fifi Soumah the reigning Miss Africa USA, having embarked on her journey as a Goodwill Ambassador will be supporting yet another community project, this time, the Gambian Christian People’s Association. The 6th Annual Weekend of Fun event promises to be a lot of fun for a very good cause.
The GCPA DC has successfully awarded more than 100 scholarships to date to the University of The Gambia, tertiary institutes and secondary and primary schools. These scholarships go directly to the Gambia and support students based on need and academic merit. GCPA DC will continue to organize “Operation Clothe Gambia” which has now become an event to collect clothing, books and toys in Maryland to ship and distribute to the needy both in urban and rural areas.
GCPA DC recently partnered with other Gambian organizations in Maryland on a successful “Support the Gambia Flood Victims” fundraiser which brought in over $6,500.00 in monetary contributions and shipped a 20-foot sea-land container full of clothes, shoes, food, exercise books, and other household items valued at $16000.00 to The Gambia that was distributed by The Gambia Red Cross Society.
One hundred percent of the funds we raise through our annual gala go directly to support projects in The Gambia. As we grow, we plan on embarking on bigger projects that will continue to directly impact Gambians all over the world. Gambian Christian Peoples Association of Metropolitan DC (GCPA-DC) is registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
Miss Africa USA Fifi Soumah feels very honored to have been invited as a Special Guest to support the GCPA DC fund raising event. She has kept a busy schedule since winning the crown, supporting various charitable causes across the United States of America. She hopes to continue promoting such noble causes as she continues her successful reign as Queen.
Queen Fifi Soumah is also very happy to join the GCPA DC Event Guest of Honor, Rev Father Joseph Gough, a household name in The Gambia as described by writer Ebrima Sankareh in the Gambia Echo. Rev Father Gough became an Honorary Citizen of The Gambia a couple of years ago, granted a Gambian Diplomatic Passport and named as The Gambia’s Ambassador at Large by the Head of State of the Republic of Gambia. Father Gough was recognized for his service to the African Nation promoting education and sportsmanship. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT FATHER GOUGH
