For some 25 years, through our School Development Fund, we have assisted over 130 school projects in The Gambia, from building classrooms and renovating teaching staff quarters to equipping vegetable gardens and mending wells. When it was originally set up, there were few other organisations who supported education in this manner, however, over the years many excellent charities and NGOs have started assisting Gambian schools.
With this in mind, rather than solely supporting education projects, we decided that it is time to change how the School Development Fund operates and what projects we fund. We renamed the School Development Fund, the Community Development Fund giving us the opportunity to not only support Gambian schools in the future, but communities as a whole as well. And rather than just giving funds, our aim is also to empower Gambian communities to help themselves.
