Our Involvement - progress, to date

  • We visited Sohm for the first time in 2011, and began assisting the schools the following year, by donating some books and stationery and teaching materials, to both schools. We found sponsors for a dozen local youngsters, to enable them to receive a decent education.
  • We began serious fund raising in 2012, and through the generosity of family and friends raised about £5,000 for the schools.
  • We arranged the twinning of Sohm Lower Basic school with Derwentwater primary school, in Acton
  • In 2013, during an extended stay in The Gambia, we spent the money that we had raised in Sohm, in ways that you can read about elsewhere on this website.

Sohm Lower Basic school has twinned with Derwentwater Primary school, Acton.
