Welcome to CoGS (Children of Gambia Services)
CoGS was formed in April 2007, and is a UK based charity dedicated to meeting the educational, welfare and medical needs of children in The Gambia.
CoGS fund the running costs and further development of a nursery school for 100 children at Jabang village, which now recently includes a bore hole delivering fresh water which greatly benefits both the school and the local community. The next aim is a medical facility on adjacent land to the school which the school owns.
The children at the school have won inter-school competitions and in 2011 the first 21 children graduated to primary school. The primary school headmaster praised the quality of the educational achievement of the children and affirmed the invaluable start the school had provided the students.
We are all volunteers, so ALL money raised benefits the children in The Gambia.
We still need to find generous sponsors for children to ensure they can complete their nursery education and raise funds to complete the medical facility. When this nursery school is securely funded for the long-term we wish to support further nursery schools which are in desperate need of support.
