Helping Children

Our school opened in 2013 with 67 children aged 4 – 7 years old. For the first time receiving an education and the chance for a future.

In 2014 with generous support from customers and suppliers we dug a well and installed a solar powered pump to provide fresh, clean water.

2015 saw us raising funds to build a wall around the school yard to keep the children safe and keep animals out ! Thank you to everyone who contributed to the project – WE DID IT!

We cut the ribbon to the new school gates when we visited in January. The school now has a great area for the children to play safely in and the ladies of the village have cultivated an area to provide fruit, vegetables and salad for the children.

Since 2014 we have had 24 children reaching the standard where they could graduate to the next school. We set about getting individual sponsors for each of them so they could continue their education which we are also proud to have achieved. We are now looking for sponsors for our 2016 graduates.

Our project needs ongoing support and there are a number of ways you can help so please take a few minutes to look at how. Every penny goes to the school and the children and every penny counts.


Thank you from Lisa, Derick and all the Children of Kafuta Tumbung

Donations

We have a range of jewellery and other items sourced from The Gambia which is on sale in the shops and phone box. ALL the profit goes back to the Gambia supporting the school and the education of girls in particular.

If you are interested in sponsoring one of our children at £5 a month or making a regular contribution to the school, please talk to us and we can explain how it works.

25p from every cream tea sold and 20p from every handwritten hanging Christmas plaque goes towards the project.

Any donations of educational equipment or books will be gratefully received. We will be sending parcels out regularly. Any other items we can sell would be great also.
