GambiaRising is a small program that is focused on helping Gambian students who without our support would not be able to go to school. In order to help the maximum number of students, if a family can pay some of the needed costs, we ask them to pay that. We focus on grades 1 though 12. About 2/3 of the students we support are girls, but we consider all applications regardless of gender, religion, or tribal background.
All applicants are reviewed by a team of Gambian educators. To apply, download the appropriate form by clicking on "this form" below and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org
