Fundraising Progress - Brikama


Joan Dyer launched her appeal for funding on 12 September 2010 to raise money to provide schoolrooms for the   9-13 year old children in Brikama. They do not currently have suitable buildings to use when the reach the age of eight.  They leave the facilities we have built for them. Join the exclusive Brikama Brigade and donate monthly for 12 months to enable Joan to hit her target of £10,000.

What are the benefits?

Together we will provide an everlasting education facility for Christian and Muslim children. They will be educated in harmony in this Methodist funded mission school. All money raised is strictly controlled and every pound is spent on construction.  Funds are controlled by a methodist minister in the Gambia and only paid out against materials and labour directly used for the school.
