I am from Niani in the Central River Division of The Gambia on the West Coast of Africa. It is predominantly, made up of the Mandinka,the Fula and the Wollof language groups. There are other minority groups such as Mansuanka, Balanta, Manjago, Jola etc. All living together with mutual understanding and respect for each other's traditional norms and values. Islam and Christianity are the main religions in this area. The main economic activity is farming. A wide range of crops such as peanuts, millet, sorghum, rice, maize, potatoes, sesame etc are cultivated.
