Gambia Project

Gambian Scholarship Program.
In the Gambia, west Africa, the government is able to provide free education for all elementary school students. Junior high and high school students can only go to school if they can afford it. But school in the Gambia is very inexpensive by Western standards. For only $75-$100 for a whole school year, a student can go to "junior secondary school" or "senior secondary school" (junior high school or high school).

Please help sponsor a student! You can make a donation of any amount, or, if you would like to sponsor a student for a year, we will pair you up with a specific student and you will receive their name and contact information.
