Project Gambia

In December 2013, staff and students from Farringdon travelled out to The Gambia in Africa to work with the children, young people and families in the Gunjur region.  Whilst there students transformed classrooms, distributed the contents of our 40 feet container to some of the poorest families in the region and organised lots of games and activities for children and young people in the local schools. Students worked with some of the most vulnerable youngsters and helped to make a huge difference to the lives of many families.

The Gambia experience was also instrumental in changing the outlook of all the students who took part. Some described the experience as ‘Life Changing’. The volunteering opportunity in The Gambia enabled all 23 students who took part to gain a platinum youth achievement award which was presented by the Mayor of Sunderland, Councillor Stuart Porthouse in June this year.

Project Gambia is an ongoing initiative in partnership with The Box Youth Project that will be available to students on an annual basis. Although the cost participate in the experience is £1300 per students, there are many opportunities in the lead up to the visit for students to raise the funds needed.

Project Gambia has received lots of support from local primary schools to date, for which we are we are very grateful.  We hope that the partnership with the primary schools will further develop so that we can continue to make a real difference in the lives of those less fortunate in The Gambia.
