Brufut AVI Nursery School, The Gambia
Gambia School Support (GSS), the UK charity, now supports now three nursery schools in the Brufut area on the southern banks of the Gambia river.
These schools make a critical difference to the lives of the children by providing early education that they would otherwise not be starting until they were 7 years old (when state provision begins). GSS also provides nutritional supplements and employs a full-time medical assistant.
The project brief was to do a concept design including four classrooms, two administrative offices, a kitchen, six toilet cubicles, a handwashing station, ‘the bantaba’ (an outdoor meeting space under the mango tree) and a playing area.
Building work has started on site in June 2018 and should be complete by April 2019.
