Project Gambia

Due to Covid we were unable to collect our Christmas shoe boxes as we normally would but we wanted you to know that your teachers saved the day by collecting together and making up the show boxes for you. Each sponsored child will receive their Christmas box. Thank you staff!

Ms Harrison was due to load the container on 31st October but this was unable to go ahead due to restrictions. it is now due to be done on the 5th December. We hope this can go ahead but we will keep you informed and pictures will follow.

When the container arrives in the Gambia we will let you know.

A online Christmas stall is being organised as we cannot sell at Christmas Fairs this year. If you would like to view the things on offer and support project Gambia please follow the web address below:

We are still sponsoring our children at Hanna Vibe School. Thank you for your continued support!

We have been busy raising funds for Project Gambia in and out of school. Ms Harrison has been preparing and delivering Afternoon Teas for 200 people where over £600 was raised. 

this is a difficult time for us all at the moment and the effects are being felt widely in The Gambia. 

Project Gambia has been supporting families and communities with food packages and helping with teacher wages at our project schools.

Now in its 12th year, Project Gambia is a charitable organisation that aims to help communities in the Gambia by providing education, support and funding. Setup by Ridgewood High school, it provides the opportunity for students, staff and members of the local community to experience life in Gambia first hand. This will help students understand their responsibility as global citizens, that they can make a difference to the world in which they live.
For more information please visit the Project Gambia website.
Ms Harrison was due to visit The Gambia in March 2020 but this was cancelled due to lockdown and travel restrictions. However, we are still trying to support our friends in the Gambia where we can and there are many exciting projects still running. Hopefully we can all return to normal as soon as possible.
