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. Over 20 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 Half Dye or Hanne Vibe 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. More information on all of our projects and sponsoring a child to go to school can be found in the projects section of the website.
