Welcome to the Smiling Child School!
The school has been established 17 years ago, by Amadou Tamba. By then the school was called Rosy Apple Noël Baker Nursery School. 4 years ago the Smiling Child of The Gambia Foundation started to support the school and therefore the name was changed to Smiling Child School. The school is located in Lamin Kerewan in one of the smallest countries of Africa called The Gambia.
The Smiling Child School has now a nursery and a lower basic school. After graduating from the Smiling Child Lower Basic School, the students can go to the governmental high school opposite the street. The most important educational fundament is accessible for the children of the village and surroundings. Currently, the foundation is making a huge progression in succeeding the building of the lower basis school.
Building the 4th Classroom?
When the next school year starts, it’s the aim of the foundation to start building the 4th classroom of Smiling Child Lower Basic School.
