BACE - In The Gambia

BACE (Building and Assisting Communities with Education) is a small charity with a long reach. We formed to help children in rural communities in The Gambia access education and health services and our first project was in 2011 when BACE Volunteers and the local community of Bonsa built the Favour Preparatory Nursery School.

New Trustee - Tania Price

BACE are delighted to announce and welcome a new Trustee to their team, Tania Price.

Tania has travelled to the Gambia with the charity on many occasions with her family, and has become an asset to the team.

Tania is a Customer Experience Manager in Digital Delivery within the Civil Service, working to ensure 4,500 users have the correct equipment and tools within the rail, maritime, air and roads policy.

Tania's experience in planning, communication and co ordinating large groups of people will be an asset to the strong group of Trustees and our team in The Gambia and we all look forward to working with her.

BACE manages and funds the Favour Preparatory Nursey School providing facilities for over one hundred 3 - 7 year old children who otherwise would be walking 6 miles to school. We continue to support the teaching staff, stock the school with the best materials we can and improve the learning space year on year.

In 2014 we raised the raised the money to build BACE Primary Health clinic in Bonsa. This clinic not only caters for our 100 students, but provides accessible healthcare for the 20,000 surrounding villagers.
