We have teamed up with Our Global School (OGS) and Orkidstudio to help design and construct an early years centre in The Gambia. the project will replace the existing nursery school (damaged in a storm in 2015) with a new and improved facility. We hope to provide a space where children can learn and play, imagine and be creative. The project has the full suport of Gambia's Education Ministry, who will use the centre as a precendent to transform nursery teaching across The Gambia.
OGS have been working with the community of the Mbollet-ba for 6 years, developing the quality of education for the school. After many simple projects, OGS and the school are now ready for a project to transform the nursery classes to a new child centered model of 'learning through play'.
We (Olivia and Ben) are recent graduates from Portsmouth University, and have the opportunity to use the knowledge we have learnt to make a difference. It will be a great opportunity to work with the community to develop a real life project that is greatly needed.
The money we raise will go towards the material site related costs, funds for the families hosting us, and any additional money raised will go towards insurance and flights.
We will keep you updated throughout the project, thank you for reading!
