Supporting Families and Children In Gambia

Through the kind help of a former member of staff, Robert Leder, Claires Court is supporting 'Charity Pearl The Gambia' in its efforts to make substantial improvements to day to day life in the Brufut area of The Gambia.

Charity Pearl The Gambia is an organisation that has been helping families and children from a disadvantaged background in the Brufut area of The Gambia since 2012. The Gambia is an impoverished country where many parents are illiterate so the education of their children is essential to empower them to gain skills to earn a living and help support their families, which they do by:

  • Helping vulnerable and underprivileged childrenGambia children
  • Improving the quality of life for families
  • Promoting  and helping to provide education, for children from pre-school to High School

Their focus is the building of an Education Centre, which will provide: 

  • A day care centre
  • A nursery and kindergarten
  • Teacher training programmes
  • Female empowerment projects

Claires Court has already helped fund the building of the Pearl Education Centre, along with the digging of a borehole and well to provide clean water to the community in Brufut.

As a School we are now looking to contribute further to help fund the building costs of an additional classroom in the Education Centre, with a view to this becoming the centre’s first computer lab. To support our fundraising efforts please make a donation by visiting our JustGiving page.
