About Us

Behati Foundation was initiated in June 2019 by a group of individuals committed to giving the most vulnerable children and young people a brighter future by strengthening education in The Gambia, West Africa. 

We believe that access to good quality education is a right and not a privilege, and aim to achieve what every child deserves – the opportunity to realise their potential, no matter where they come from.

Our Approach

We root our work in real life experiences and work with local communities to deeply understand their challenges. Our projects are led on-the-ground by local staff ensuring local communities participation and support, and are driven by what is best for the children we work for.

We strongly believe that only by working in partnership with local communities and by applying participatory approaches difference can be achieved.
