The Lisa Kent Memorial Nursery School
This school was rebuilt on a new site in 2015 and is now called the Lisa Kent Friendship Nursery school. To find out more about the new school, please visit out dedicated page .
The Lisa Kent Memorial Nursery School is for Christian and Muslim children aged 3-7 years old situated in a village in the South Kombo area of the Gambia.
After gradual development the school had three classrooms, toilets and showers, a Headmaster’s office and store. The school also had running water and electricity, thus providing lights and fans in each classroom.
There are many children in this area who are unable to attend school as their parents are unable to pay. For this reason the Trust operates a sponsorship programme allowing some of these children the chance of an education and a better start to life.
Originally there were five nursery schools in the area, now there are only two and demand for places is high.
For this reason the Trust set up a sponsorship programme for the children in most need.
This is now extended to other schools. We hope that a sponsor will where possible sponsor a child throughout their education. The Trust oversees the sponsorship of all children when they move to primary and secondary schools.
The parents are extremely grateful for the help which provides their children with an education that would not otherwise have been possible.
The Lisa Kent Memorial Nursery school has now moved sites as it known as The Lisa Kent Friendship Nursery School.
