My Farm

“From our base in London to our school in Brufut, the Gambia – we aim to empower the youth through access to quality education, skills,  sports, tools and IT.”


Our Aim

We started The Gambian Schools Project following a holiday to  The Gambia. We visited a school while we were there and were surprised at the conditions the children were having to learn in. We discussed the situation with our two guides who helped us find a school in the slums of Serrakunda, the main town in The Gambia, called Badala, and we decided we would see what we could do to raise some money when we returned to England.


About Us

Gambian Projects was established in 2008 by UK teacher  Debbie Williams and her Gambian husband Modou Fatty.  With support from UK sponsors they provide opportunities for people in The Gambia to improve their lives through education and skills training.

About Us

The BUILD A SCHOOL IN GAMBIA project came about as a result of Martin Englefield’s on-going involvement with the Gambia. He wanted to help with the education of their children in 1994 after visiting The Gambia on holiday.  The Gambia is situated on the coast of West Africa, has an average daytime temperature of 32°C/89°F and beautiful beaches: a seemingly perfect holiday destination. One year Martin decided to visit a few local schools in order to try and better understand what education was available to the local children.
