The Don McMath Foundation


The Don McMath Foundation

Anne McMath made a return visit to the club on 16th May 2006 to give an update on the Don McMath Foundation. The project in memory of Anne late husband started by sponsoring children in the Gambia to go to school and now she has built a 6 classroom school which the Foundation fully funds.

Anne personally Project Managed the building of the school which was completed for only £28,700 and was opened last November by the British High Commissioner. The school currently holds 182 children which are drawn from poor families that otherwise would have no chance of an education. Anne has now also initiated Adult Literacy classes at the school. The school has mains power (sometimes!), running water and flush toilets they also grow their own fruit in the grounds to improve the children’s diet.

Anne is now in the process of building a second 4 classroom school which will enable the full range of children to be educated from the age of 4 to 14.

The cost of sponsoring a child is £50.00 and Anne has raised all the money necessary via boot sales garden parties and sponsorship. See her WEB site for further information.
