Education & Values

Spot Academy provides free schooling for children between the ages of 7-16. We have built a boarding school for orphans which also acts as a community school for the local community. We are situated on the West coast of Africa, in The Gambia, Tujereng

We pride ourselves on our positive ethos which supports and enhances the personal development and well-being of every child. As a vibrant institution, we provide learning opportunities in an environment where students are frequently challenged and encouraged to reach their full potential. 

Our curriculum incorporates English, Maths, Science, Islamic Studies, Arabic, Public Speaking, IT and Life Skills. We provide funding for university to ensure that each student is fully supported throughout their journey to become responsible, well-rounded individual who will be prepared for adult life. 


Our first task is to inspire these children and rebuild their faith in society. We receive them traumatised and distrusting of the notion of ‘good will’, so we work to stimulate their imagination and ambition. We aim to work on self confidence, raise aspirations and encourage creativity from a young age. We aim to inspire and enlighten the people of tomorrow.


Once the children at SPOT academy have successfully assimilated into our ecosystem at SPOT Academy, their journey of education begins with Arabic, English and Islamic Studies lessons as per the local culture. With the completion of the primary school and learning centre, there will be numerous opportunities for our students to learn trade skills in various industries as well as the national curriculum.


We provide education, training, and funding for further education in order to nurture the next generation of pioneers. By producing outstanding citizens and providing them with key life skills and opportunities, we aim to transform the landscape of the next generation. Changing hearts and minds is changing society and changing lives is changing the world.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows SPOT Project to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to SPOT Project we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like SPOT Project to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that SPOT Project will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When SPOT Project receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
