How to Help

We are hugely grateful for your support and if you wish to help, you can do so in a number of ways: 

Donate School Equipment

The Gambia Building Project regularly sends a container of donations to the schools in the Gambia to help furnish new classrooms, or provide them with essential equipment - See Our Mission to find out what we are currently in need of. If you have anything to donate, please email us on We are able to arrange collection of the donations if necessary. 

Monetary Donations

The project is raising £10,000 to complete building a school in Basse. You can help us reach this target of £10,000 by donating through the Paypal button on the left or by sending a cheque made payable to the Gambia Building Project, to: Gambia Building Project, Units 16-17, Three Springs Trading Estate, Vincent Road, Worcester, WR5 1BW

Donations will also go towards the cost of sending our containers to the Gambia, as well towards the school fees of the children. 

Sponsor a Child

Keeping a child in school costs £10 a month, which includes school fees and equipment. If you are interested in sponsoring a child or would like to find out more about the school, please contact us or send a cheque made payable to the address above. We are in close contact with the school and photographs from the children can be arranged.
