Below is the PRESS RELEASE…
This book is Makaylah Safiya Williams’ first book, which is based on a true story.
She bravely travelled to the Gambia despite having fears about lions roaming the streets. When she arrived, Makaylah discovered that television told children lies; there were no lions to be found only beautiful people from the African Diaspora with amazing stories to tell.
Parents agree this is a great bedtime companion for children aged 8+. Teachers can use the quiz page at the back of the book as well as the poetry challenge for classroom
‘My First Trip to The Gambia’ is a great way to teach children more about the continent of Africa and develop their confidence, self-esteem and sense of adventure.
10% of book sales will be donated to the
Manhood Academy for Boys’ rites of passage
programme and The Womanhood Academy for Girls.
Bulk copies are available for purchase.

NOTES FOR EDITOR
“Had Makaylah not been so brave, determined and open-minded, we would never have gone to The Gambia and The Manhood Academy would never have been born”
