If you are interested in this topic my best advice is Ttip Advisor forum.

Most Africans in The Gambia are from a Muslimic Culture.  That means females are beholden for life to the father wish and then the brother.  I'm my terms (sudo-Christian) believe in the principle but do not practice that much, these girls up to 25 are little more than domestic slaves and often beaten.

Some to escape this culture, they meet Euro men probably older, who will help and care in a way they never expected.

The Dutch are very good at this even 30 year relationships are not uncommon.  The very mixed family on the beach every Sunday.  Alas, UK law is very strict on entry visa and with the British Island Security Wall going up soon (Brexit),   be worse before it gets better
