In the autumn term subject departments across NWHS donated teaching and learning resources such as textbooks, reading books, mini whiteboards, arts and craft items and even the odd skeleton that are no longer used by students at NWHS, to the Gambia Building Project.
The Gambia Building Project is a registered charity, which works alongside schools to improve the education of children. In Gambia families view education as a precious commodity but it is often too expensive for many students to complete their studies.
The aim of the GBP is not only to ensure children can stay in school, but to improve the schools and facilities in the country. They do this by fundraising to build schools and support school fees, as well as donating equipment such as minibuses, sports equipment, school furniture, books and good quality clothing including school uniforms.
