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

First established 10 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 2017 we will embarked on our 10th trip as Ridgewood High School's Project Gambia.
