Building Futures In The Gambia

Registered Charity Number 1159520

Building Futures in The Gambia (BFiG) has evolved through the collaboration of teachers, schools, teacher trainees and school children in the UK. Over many years, travelling to The Gambia, members of BFiG have explored and investigated the Global Dimension within education. They have met with, and continue to regularly talk with Ministers, Head Teachers, Teachers and pupils in The Gambia to identify needs and prioritise areas for action.

BFiG has engaged with a range of initiatives that have recently included:- school based curriculum projects; the building of a library; classroom construction and sanitation installations in rural and urban areas. Most importantly, needs are identified by Gambian schools through their School Development Plans.

Led by experienced teachers, with knowledge gained from over a decade of work in the Gambia, the BFiG is currently embarking on a portfolio of sustainable initiatives. As a relatively small organisation, our aim is to ensure every pound, euro, cent and yen is directed in the most sustainable and cost effective way possible.

Our current exciting project for BFiG is the development of a new nursery school for the village of Busumbala. Located approximately 3km from Makumbaya and Bafuloto Quarry, Busumbala is an expanding semi-rural locality with a dire need for nursery school provision.
