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.
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.
Currently we are raising the money to build a BACE clinic in Bonsa. However, the clinic will not just cater for our 100 students, but will also provide accessible healthcare for the 20,000 surrounding villagers.
Alongside these 2 major projects, we have also provided a borehole and pump, vegetable garden, playground and dental care facilities for our teaching staff and students at the school.
Thank you for your attention and in particular we thank the many people who have helped us to make a difference to the Bonsa community. If you feel that you can help in any way please contact the trustees through firstname.lastname@example.org
