About this cause

About our cause

GEMS (Gambian Educational and Medical Services) is a small charity, primarily supporting a small school in Sinchu Balia, Gambia. The school (known as Jenny and Lynda's Nursery school) is situated in Sinchu Balia, a small village half an hours drive from the coast.

The school currently has 106 children on roll, with three teachers: Mr. Abdoulie Laye, Mrs. Amie Sanyang (Deputy Head), Mrs. Fatoumator Sanyang and the Head Teacher Mrs. Fatou Barrow.

The school was originally built and set up by Jenny Saunders in 2000 with the help of friends and family in and around the Crowborough area of Sussex.
