Thanks to the Marlborough Brandt Group (MBG) we were lucky enough to go on a life-changing cultural exchange to Gunjur in The Gambia, and experience a totally different life in a West African village, living and working with local families over the course of a year.

The eye-opening experience forged a strong affinity with the people, music and art of Gunjur, and a lasting friendship between us.
