Luminos in The Gambia
The Gambia is one of the smallest countries in Africa — with just less than 2.5 million residents. Almost 50,000 primary-school-aged children are out of school, according to the World Bank.
At the request of The Gambian government, Luminos is providing curriculum development support and advisory services to the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE) and co-creating a practical plan that will ensure all out-of-school primary-aged children in The Gambia receive a second chance at education.
Looking ahead, Luminos is excited to grow our partnership with the government and realize our vision where thousands of children catch up to grade level, reintegrate into government schools, and prepare for lifelong learning.
“Every child deserves to be given the opportunity to explore and realize their full potential through schooling. This is my conviction.”
Mr. Momodou Jeng, Director of Curriculum Research Evaluation and Development Directorate at MoBSE
In 2022, Luminos invited The Gambia’s MoBSE to visit our programs in Liberia, where they had an opportunity to see the benefits of continuous training and feedback for teachers. Above, Luminos Associate Director of Programs, Emily Joof, shakes hands with a Luminos Liberia teacher after visiting his classroom with Mr. Momodou Jeng, Director of Curriculum Research Evaluation and Development Directorate at MoBSE and a key partner to Luminos.
