• SkillCenter Simma (Gambia)

Simma Vocational Training Institute & Women’s Resource Centre is based in Bundung, a densely populated part of the city of Serekunda. The school has many pupils from the outskirts of the city and mainly concentrates on girls. There are two levels at Simma, pre-vocational and vocational. All training courses on offer last three years.

In total, the school has around 200 students (full-time and part-time pupils). Locally, this school has a good reputation. It is possible to follow vocational training courses for work as administrative assistant/secretary, seamstress, bookkeeper, or to take cooking lessons.

We started sponsoring pupils at this school in 2008.
