WHY NOT GET YOUR SCHOOL/CLASS INVOLVED?

'LEARNING ACROSS CONTINENTS PROJECT'

Children can be educated by learning from children in other parts of the world. The Gambia and the way of life in Africa is a million miles away from how our children live. Just like children in The Gambia cannot possibly imagine the way of life children have in the west, likewise children in the west have no idea of the way of life of Gambian children. Living without electricity or running water, where going to school is an unaffordable dream and transport is either walking for miles or a donkey cart. 

Children are the future and to make children aware of how others have to live can only educate them and encourage them not only to actively want to help change things, but also to show them that how every one lives their lives can impact on others. If one child grows up wanting to see and bring about change, the impact that can have is like a stone in a lake, the ripple affect goes on and on, touching others and encouraging others, empowering and educating and so on through the generations.      

WHY NOT TWIN WITH A SCHOOL OR CLASS IN THE GAMBIA?

Or

PERHAPS YOUR SCHOOL OR CLASS WOULD LIKE GAMBIAN CHILDREN AS PENPALS? 

We are pleased to say that a penpal scheme between a UK school and Misera Basic School has been set up. This will enable children from both countries to learn about each others cultures and countries.

FUND RAISING IDEAS FOR CHILDREN:

1. African Dress Day.
The children get sponsored to dress in the African way or alternatively have a Fancy Dress Day or a Non Uniform Day.

2. Face Painting. Animals of Africa with the children contributing some of their pocket money.

3. Donate a Present. The children each donate a present or the cost of a Christmas or Birthday present, instead choosing to send an appropriate present to a Gambian child or donating the money instead or alternatively use the cost of the present to buy a gift from our shop. The children could join together and each donate the cost of one Christmas and then pick a very much needed larger gift.

4. Christmas Boxes. Each child could fill a shoe box for a Gambian child, with items picked from the list on this page that Gambian children are in need of. 

5. Classroom Quiz. A quiz for children is available to download, they could get sponsorship per question so the more questions they get right the more money they raise. 

6. Donate Your Unwanted or Too Small Clothes.
Children grow very quickly and could donate their unwanted clothes. Children in The Gambia have little if anything in the way of clothes.

7. Donate Your Unwanted Toys.
A toy of any sort is an unaffordable luxury to a child in The Gambia and would bring much enjoyment and happiness.

8. Organise a Sponsored Read.
The children can read, learn, and raise money at the same time.

9. Donate An Easter Egg
Children can donate the cost of one of their Easter Eggs, having one less instead.

10. Donate A Christmas Present
Children can donate the cost of one of their Christmas Presents and have one less. 

11. Hold A Disco
Hold a disco with a donation for entry

12. Hold A Talent Competition/Show

13. Give Something Up.
Children, teachers and parents alike can be sponsored to give something up.

14. Sponsored silence!
Children? Teachers?

15. Parent/Teacher Auction
