Charity information

Wonder Years Centre of Excellence (WYCE)

In the UK, we raise awareness and funds to support our team in the Gambia who - working with the Gambian government - provide education and a hot meal for more than 500 children each day, adult literacy classes, a healthcare and maternity clinic, an emergency hospital transfer service, skills training and livelihoods for local people.
In the Gambia, WYCE is run by Gambians, for Gambians.
