The African Oyster Trust is currently focused on supporting education projects in The Gambia, particularly the building and running of nursery schools for which no Government funding is available.
Not only are they providing a solid pre-school education for some of the world’s poorest children, but they are also places of hope – somewhere for these most vulnerable of children to be cared for, nourished, supported and encouraged.
Pre-school education is a vital first step out of the cycle of poverty for young Gambians aged three to seven years. As well as giving them a head-start when their primary education begins (free from seven to 14 years of age), it can also provide a lasting sense of ambition and opportunity.
