Here’s a GoPro video made by Newman Student Laura Grace following the 2017 Newman University Birmingham visit to The Gambia. Laura writes…
Please enjoy some of the many highlights following our visit to The Gambia in January 2017. Our group from Newman University in Birmingham travelled to West Africa to support the work of BFIG – Building Futures in The Gambia. BFIG is a registered charity that aims to facilitate educational opportunities for children and young people in The Gambia. Many of us are trainee teachers and so we were very interested to see and learn all about this. We visited many schools during our trip and it was our privilege to teach some of the wonderful children. BFIG is currently building a school in the village of Busumbala.
