Sponsors

Sponsor a child. Give a child a brighter future. Help a family in poverty.

We are continually looking for people to sponsor the education of some of the poorest children at Erenjang. The law states that in The Gambia all children can attend school from age 2, even if they do not have the funds to pay. For instance when this occurs it means their school fees come out of the teachers wages or water bills don't get paid for. Our goal is to have every child in the nursery sponsored.

What's the cost?

£60 a year is all is costs to sponsor a child through their education at Erenjang Nursery.

This cost translates to 2 and a half months salary to the average family in Kotu.

What £60 covers

£40 per year for school fees

£20 per year for uniform

5 years of education

Your £40 will pay for their school fees. These fees cover school equipment, water and electricity, teacher salaries and school maintenance.

Your £20 will buy two sets of uniform, school shoes and a new bag.

You will sponsor a child from the ages of 2 - 7 years old paying £60 a year. After the age of 7 your decision to sponsor is optional but encouraged to continue supporting your child throughout the next years of education.

Why sponsor?

Give a child a brighter future

Help a family in poverty

Sponsoring helps families who can’t afford to pay their child’s school fees. Without sponsorship help some children are left with no option but to miss out on nursery school from the ages of 2-8.

You will sponsor a child from the ages of 2 - 7 years old paying £60 a year. After the age of 7 your decision to sponsor is optional but encouraged to continue supporting your child throughout the next years of education.
