Gambia Building Project

Dedicated to improving young lives in West Africa

The Gambia Building Project is a registered charity which works alongside schools in The Gambia to improve the education of children there.

In our experience, children and families in The Gambia view education as a precious commodity, but it is often too expensive and many children are unable to complete their studies.

Our aim is not only to ensure children are able to stay in school, but to improve the schools and facilities in the Gambia. We do this by fundraising in order to build schools and support the school fees, as well as donating equipment such as minibuses, sports equipment, school furniture and good quality school uniforms and clothing.

We are proud of what we have been able to achieve over the years, including taking six minibuses full of equipment across Europe and through North and West Africa to The Gambia in 2011.

Of course, we haven't been able to do this on our own and are immensely grateful to all the schools and organisations in Worcestershire and across the UK who have donated items they no longer need.
