Since we began in 2001, we are proud to have helped establish, significantly expand and improve the system of education for young children in The Gambia particularly in the poorer more remote regions of the country.
We have provided or facilitated:-
and MUCH MUCH more!!
To help achieve our aims one of our major activities in the UK is that each year between April and October, we collect exercise books, pencils, art materials, stacking tables and chairs, metal cupboards, computers, science equipment, books both reference & reading, sporting equipment, and gardening & DIY tools. Items are stored in the UK until they are shipped to The Gambia in October. All the resources are subsequently distributed to the five schools maintained by the charity AND many others throughout the country.
We can only achieve all of this thanks to the tireless efforts and generosity of our founders, our helpers, our amazing sponsors and of course, the Gambian people themselves, whose genuine welcome and appreciation of our work will ensure a long lasting legacy. Each year there are opportunities for volunteers to go out to The Gambia to help with projects, if this sounds of interest to you please get in touch with us.
The Bradford Telegraph & Argus published the following article in September 2019 which gives more background and a detailed insight into what we do at the Trust.
