Education is key for a sustainable development

Education is key for a sustainable development

As an international training institution, education and professional development is a matter close to our heart.

This is especially true where support for a school project gives ambitious young people the opportunity to graduate, find a job and live their own life. Education opens up new horizons for them within their own country so they no longer see emigration as their only option.

The secret of success of this privately operated school in The Gambia lies in the well structured pedagogical concept, and in the close cooperation between the German foundation and the school management and parents’ association, founded in 2015.

Today some 650 students attend this non-confessional school, which has meanwhile become one of the best schools in The Gambia and will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Last year donations from En GardE helped to build a new classroom and to buy laptops and a mobile solar unit, providing modern infrastructure for the school so that it can now offer IT courses for classes 6-9. This is an important step towards creating the basis for entrance to university and further professional training, while also ensuring that the school has a reliable source of electric power. Democracy is still young in The Gambia, which is one of the poorest nations in the world, but offers hope for a better future.

We at En GardE want to make our small contribution to this country’s future. For more information about this project (currently in German only), please visit:
