Got time to catch up on our news?

When we talk with people about Project Gambia we’ve noticed that if there’s one thing that helps people understand about our drive, activities and progress, it’s the stories, the real life events and interactions that we and other people have had with our friends in The Gambia. In many ways this replicates how children learn best also, by having genuine, first hand concrete experiences which helps them to understand the component parts of a situation.

 

We will try and bring you these reflections, stories and information about Project Gambia from time to time, to help share our progress and the part all of our supporters have had to play to make this possible.

It is with great sadness that we inform our supporters of the tragic loss of one of our trustees and Project Gambia secretary Rosemary Albone. She passed away after a short illness.

All those involved in the charity have been devastated, as she was a huge part of the success of our work in The Gambia.
Rosemary was an amazing person. She was highly intelligent, kind, generous and gave so much time to Project Gambia. Thanks to her so many lives have changed for the better in the village of Gunjur.

We have lost a very special lady and the charity will never be the same. However, we must carry on our work in her memory and ensure children in the village get the best education possible

Our thoughts are now with Steve and her family to whom we send our sincere condolences.

2019 Trip to Gunjur and beyond!

Our annual trip to Gunjur was another successful, interesting and challenging one. With 7 Preschools now up and running to capacity we are proud to say that currently we have 968 children receiving a quality early education. We’ve tried to capture some of our story in this newsletter. Time to pop the kettle on!
