Changing lives… including yours
Working with a range of partners both in the UK and in The Gambia, Project Gambia has, since 2007, established a range of projects in schools, villages, and farms to provide education, support, and funding to enable people to find a sustainable solution to poverty.
Each year Project Gambia organises several trips to The Gambia. This is a vital part of the work we do as it enables students and staff from a number of schools and colleges, along with local community members, to work in partnership with Gambian communities to make a significant difference in a variety of settings to the lives of the Gambian people. This not only changes lives of people in The Gambia but also of those of us who visit The Gambia, so that Project Gambia is consistently achieving its objective of “changing lives…including yours.”
Many local schools and community groups support our work through donations of clothes, shoes, school resources, Christmas shoeboxes etc, as well as fundraising for our latest projects. These donations are shipped each year on a 40ft container to The Gambia. Many of these schools, alongside individuals, also sponsor children to attend school at Hanne Vibe, Omega and Wisdom schools. Through assemblies and lessons we introduce pupils to what life is like for children in The Gambia and support staff to embed global learning into the curriculum.
