Hanne Vibe School
The Hanne Vibe School is located in the Sancheba area of The Gambia. It is a small school with only 5 classrooms and approximately 140 pupils. Mrs Singateh, the head teacher, was a 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 has been unable to continue do this. Many of the children attend school but are unable to pay their school fees which means that the school has been struggling for finance and resources

Sponsor a Child Programme
Since 2019 our sponsor a child programme has enabled children who are not able to afford school fees to attend school.

Omega School
In May 2022 a new sponsorship programme has been started to support Omega School. The school is a small nursery school in Sinchu Sorrie, Kombo North, which is in the west coast region of The Gambia. Established in 2015 the school’s aim is to give poorer children in the Sinchu Sorrie area an opportunity to attend school. There are currently 194 children in the school which has 6 classes: Nursery 1 -3 and Grades 1-3. Although children should pay fees to attend the school; for uniform, equipment and stationery many of them cannot afford to.

Sponsoring a child costs £12 a month which pays for school fees, uniform and books. Sponsors receive photos of their sponsor child, termly reports and any letters/cards/ pictures etc which the children give us when we visit.

For more information about the programme and/or if you would like to sponsor a child please email Bev Hodt: bevhodt@projectgambia.org.uk More information about these schools can be found in the schools section of the website.
