Last month The Gambia Experience’s School Development Fund donated a total of £3,886 to four schools in The Gambia.

This is all thanks to the wonderful donations made by guests and staff, as well as the company itself.


Toniataba Lower Basic School

Toilet Block

Sering, one of our Gambia Experience representatives in resort, presents £1,243 to Mr Charty from Toniataba Lower Basic School to fund the building of a new toilet block made up of 8 pit latrines. Currently the school has only 4 latrines shared by a total of 425 students and staff, so the new toilet block is in great need.
