Once a boy has finished primary education in Gambia their education is no longer free. As well as needing to provide uniform and school stationery they need to pay school, IT and exam fees as well as buy their textbooks. These things all add up. The costs don't seem much to us in the west but when you are a subsistence farmer having money to spend on education is difficult to spare. Many children drop out of school to work on their farms, or worse, sit around with nothing to do. Helping a child complete a secondary education will help them to realise their potential and allow them to contribute to their community's sustainable development. BEA works closely with the Bansang community and teachers to ensure progress of the child. updates and termly reports can be sent to you, the sponsor, so you can see how your gift is improving a child's life.
