Welcome to the home of Ridgewood High School's Project Gambia

First established 11 years ago the aim of the project was for students, staff, and members of our local community to travel to The Gambia for a week each year to experience first hand life in a developing country, so that they become aware of their responsibilities as global citizens, develop a respect and appreciation of their own culture, and make a difference to the world in which they live.

However the project has become much more than that.

Working alongside Gambian schools and communities we go beyond 'handouts' to provide the education, support and funding needed for people to become independent, and find a sustainable solution to poverty. In March 2018 we will embarked on our 11th trip as Ridgewood High School's Project Gambia.

In March 2018 Project Gambia will made our 11th visit to The Gambia. This year a record 106 people travelled to The Gambia over a two week period. We were delighted this year that staff and students from Earls High School and Stourbridge College joined us alongside all the adult volunteers (for some it will be their first trip)) as well as staff from Olive Hill, Newfield Park, Hob Green and Peter’s Hill Primary schools.
