BACE - In The Gambia

BACE (Building and Assisting Communities with Education) is a small charity with a long reach. We formed to help children in rural communities in The Gambia access education and health services and our first project was in 2011 when BACE Volunteers and the local community of Bonsa built the Favour Preparatory Nursery School.

Latest News: BACE has delivered a First Aid Land Rover to the Gambia with help from some fantastic supporters, read about it here.

BACE now manages and funds the school which cares for 100 3 - 7 year old children who otherwise would be walking 6 miles to school. We continue to support the teaching staff, stock the school with the best materials we can and improve the learning space year on year.

In 2014 we raised the raised the money to build BACE Primary Health clinic in Bonsa. This clinic will not just cater for our 100 students, but will also provide accessible healthcare for the 20,000 surrounding villagers.
