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 Singateh, 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 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

To support the school in April 2019 Project Gambia set up a ‘Sponsor a Child’ Programme. Sponsoring a child costs £10 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 or if you would like to sponsor a child please email Bev Hodt: bevhodt@projectgambia.org.uk
