Smiling Child of The Gambia: 3 documentaries about Smiling Child School

This month was all about 3 documentaries for Smiling Child School. Wonderful documentaries with which we strive to give a positive and interesting account of our school in Lamin-Kerewan, The Gambia.

Smiling Child Schools

In the first documentary, you will see a complete view of our nursery school and lower basic school Smiling Child Schools. The school was founded 17 years ago by Amadou M. Tamba in Lamin-Kerewan, The Gambia. In one of the smallest countries in Africa. Since 4 years the school is supported and maintained by the Foundation Smiling Child of The Gambia. Our teacher Sainey tells you about the history of the school and the contribution of the foundation.

Proud of our Sally

We are extremely proud of our Sally. She was incredibly people shy at the age of 4. Now she is 9 years old and she proudly talks about the opportunities she has received at our school. She has grown tremendously in her younger years. With pride and passion she tells us why she would like to become a doctor in the future!

Sainey takes you into his life

Sainey is one of our passionate teachers. The success of our school lies in the cooperation with the foundation and the shared passion to give these children a chance for a better future. Sainey is now 24 years old and has been teaching at Smiling Child Schools for over 6 years. “As a teacher you are responsible for developing the new generation. Thanks to the foundation’s involvement, a lot has changed at the school.” We continuously work hard to grow and develop the school.

A triptych full of inspiration and passion

The Smiling Child of The Gambia Foundation had these documentaries made in collaboration with sponsors and a creative agency in The Gambia. Together we made a beautiful triptych of short documentaries. We are extremely proud of the development of these documentaries. We hope you are too! Would you like to see these documentaries more often? Follow our Youtube channel or our website.

Together we provide a better future.

More than 400 children now go to school at the Smiling Child Schools. These children deserve a chance at a better future. The foundation cannot do this alone, we dependent on sponsors. Do you want to help the foundation with the development of a better educational environment or do you want to support the children directly? That is possible! Please contact our foundation.
