The Gambia Education Support Organization GESO Transition Team is proud to announce that four secondary school students have been selected as the first recipients of GESO scholarship. The four were chosen after a series of interviews and background checks by our GESO Gambia Zonal Coordinators to ensure that help gets to the most needy.

On behalf of these students and their families, we would like to thank all those who contributed to making GESO successful: the GESO members. Thanks to their generous monthly contributions, some needy children will have an opportunity to continue sitting in a classroom.

GESO was established in 1998 after some Gambia-L members expressed the need for an organization to be established to help out education in the Gambia.

The Mission is to provide assistance to Gambians and Gambian institutions in education in the Gambia. A vital part of the Organization's mission is to become a medium through which intellectual, logistic and material resources of Gambians and friends of the Gambia can be utilized to improve education in the Gambia.
