Welcome to the Lisa Kent Trust

The Lisa Kent Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to providing the children of the Gambia with the education they need for a brighter future. The Trust established charitable status in 2003 continuing projects already underway from 2002. The Trust is also a registered charity in the Gambia, named after Lisa Kent, who died tragically at the age of 19.

What do we do?

Lisa Kent Trust delivers a quality education to children & young people in deprived communities of The Gambia, who otherwise would not have the opportunity of schooling.

This is achieved by providing quality school buildings, experienced teachers and searching out the best in educational resources, whilst ensuring we attend to the pupil’s medical needs.
