The trust team in The Gambia, led as ever by Kira Dalton, has embarked on another exciting project - this time building a completely new three-classroom nursery school and compound for children in Talinding.
The facility is badly needed; when Kira first visited the existing JTT Nursery School she found 134 children aged from 3 to 7 years crammed into a single room with no space for proper teaching or play activities.
Read the full report here, and please do stop to think whether you can make a donation to the project (our donation page, including online facilities, is here).
Every new project we undertake makes a world of difference to the lives of these young children, but we are only a small charity and every intervention depends on the goodwill and support of our individual and corporate donors. We are grateful to each and every one.
