About Us

When first established in 2007, the aim of the project was for students and staff from Ridgewood High School in Stourbridge to experience life in the developing world, giving them the opportunity to challenge their own outlook on life. However, Project Gambia has become much more than that; enabling 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 in the developing world. 


We have 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. 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.”
