Education is a very important tool in the socio-economic development of any nation. It helps to provide, build, and expand the skills that are necessary for development.
The Gambia is a developing country with a high level of poverty and illiteracy rate. Hence, Spring of Life Association Gambia (SOLAG) is geared towards complementing the efforts of The Gambia government by providing and supporting the education of children in order to reduce the level of illiteracy in the country.
As a result, Spring of Life School was founded in 2015 by three young Gambians driven to support children held back by poverty. The school started with 6 children and in 2020 there are 160 children enrolled and receiving an affordable quality education. The numbers keep increasing on a yearly basis due to the demand.
