Mansajang Female Co-operative – Beneficiaries to current fundraising

Baotic: A business with a social conscience

Co-founders Isatou Njai and Paul Blackler met in The Gambia in 2008, through Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and continue to support community development projects, largely through helping to establish female co-operatives working to improve income, health and nutrition.

Drink Baotic commits 10% of all profit to continue to support their community development work, through collaborative support with international and local NGO partners, and directly with the community.


Baotic is delighted to sponsor the Gambia River Run, a virtual running community running virual laps of the river Gambia (696 miles) for start-up agricultural community support. #Miles4Smiles
