The organisation GETS originated in the UK and is a fully registered education charity (No. 343/2011) in Gambia supporting teachers and students. (Donation & fundraising details are on their site.)

After a holiday back in 1997 Mr. Francis Glynn and his family founded the Gambia Tourist Support Organisation (GTS). Its goals were to create training and job opportunities for local people.

In due course GTS managed to construct a fully functional school. As the years passed by it became clear that another charity was required to collect, administer and manage funds for the school and for any possible further education projects by creating a membership support base. This aim was realised back in 2004 when the Gambia Education and Teaching Support (GETS) was registered as a charity in the United Kingdom (No. 1110998).

Since 2004 the education charity has assisted over 600 students with sponsorships, managed projects for other charities, assumed the administration of an Education Centre and operated an English speaking nursery school in Bakoteh Estate (since merged with the Sunrise Centre).

You can support the work of GETS by becoming a member and you will receive regular newsletter updates on the progress of their various projects. You can make a monthly or annual donation by cheque, standing order or online. Furthermore, if you are a UK taxpayer you can give money as Gift Aid which means any tax you have already paid is sent back to GETS.
