FROGS Projects 2008

Winnies Day Care, Banjul - Provision of a Play Area

This school is on the second floor of an old building in the middle of Banjul, and the children had nowhere to play out of doors. We have transformed the ground floor backyard into a play area, with a hard play area with floor games and a soft sand area with wooded play boat and tepee.

FROGS members living in The Gambia, Sally and Malcolm did all the painting for this project.

This project cost £411 or D 17,775

Prince Lower Basic - Furniture for 2 Classrooms

Two Grade 2 classrooms were without furniture of their own – they borrowed from other classes which meant 3 children shared a bench and desk for 2.

FROGS provided funds for the 30 tables and 30 benches which were made locally for the two classrooms.

This project cost £716.00 or D36,640

Old Jeshwang Lower Basic – Computer Room

Barrow Kunda LBS – wall to enclose school compound

The school needed a wall to enclose the school compound, to enable them to have a school garden and kept the children safe from wandering livestock. To wall a large area was expensive so a local organisation Beakanyang Kafo shared 50% of the cost with FROGS.

The total project cost 728.00 or D32,282
