The Gambia Office

The Charity has an office in The Gambia at Kotu, near Manjai Lodge. Visitors are always welcome to discuss sponsorship with the team and Existing sponsors can make arrangements to visit their sponsored children there.

Just before the beginning of each term the students and their parents descend on the office to collect their cheques. A report or receipt from the previous term is confirmation of attendance. They then proceed to the bank to cash them ready to pay for uniform, fees, shoes and so on.

The Gambian team also monitors progress on construction Projects operated by FoTGA and report back to the UK.

The staff hold a PTA meeting in January each year in front of the office with singing dancing and speeches from Teachers, Parents, Government officials and Students.
