Hanne Vibe School
The Hanne Vibe School is located in the Sancheba area of The Gambia. It is a small school with only 3 classrooms and approximately 80 pupils. Mrs Siangateh, the head teacher, until recently was the School Monitor (equivalent to an OFSTED inspector in the UK) for the area. As many of the children cannot afford to pay school fees, she had been funding the school through her own finances. However, since retiring she was unable to continue do this and subsequently the school was struggling for finance and resources. The school had very few resources: the classrooms needed refurbishing and the broken-up floors in classrooms and the outside yard needed replacing.
Sponsor a Child Programme
To support the school Project Gambia established a ‘Sponsor a Child’ Programme in April 2019. (For more details about this programme go to the Projects Section of this website).
Refurbishment of the School.
Since 2018 teams visiting the school have painted and decorated the inside of all the classrooms and the outside walls, floors in the classrooms and the outside yard area have been replaced and with the help of Peters’ Hill Primary School and Mount Pleasant Primary School we have been able to purchase playground toys. A new toilet block has also been built.
