We would like to thank everyone who has already donated and supported our charity.


Each month we donate a small amount of money to our teachers, which allows the children to attend our schools for free; we also supply the necessary equipment and materials, including tissues, disinfection and soap.


We desperately need funding and have decided to set up a “Once a Year Club”, we are asking for £12 a year, £1 a month, and would really appreciate your help. Hildred will be returning to Gambia shortly and will keep you updated with photos and the progress we are making.
