This is our story
Three young Gambian friends with the passion to make a difference in the lives of children and young people in The Gambia started a charity. That was the birth of Spring of Life Association Gambia (SOLAG).
Spring of Life Association Gambia (SOLAG) was officially registered as a charity in The Gambia. (Charity no: 2014/C546)
A run-down building was rented and transformed into a school and the result was, Spring of Life School in Sinchu Alagie, The Gambia. The school started with six children and one teacher.
Onside Soccer Gambia, a project aimed at mentoring young people through sports started with a few kids and today over 80 young people benefit.
Spring of Life School grew to over 50 children. The rapid growth is attributed to the quality and afforability of education at the school.
Spring of Life School held its first-ever graduation ceremony for the children graduating from our nursery school.
A makeshift classroom was built to aid the transition into primary school cycle as well as to meet the increasing demand for enrolment.
In 2015, the number of children at Spring of Life School was 6 but today, that number is 160. Due to this growth, another classroom extension was built.
