Wellingara - Reach Education Centre

Nursery and primary school

The school is a ministry under Evangelical Church of the Gambia. It was founded in 2013 by Rev. Edward and Mrs. Patience Jatta.


More than 600 children go to school at Reach and nearly 40 staff take care of them. The majority of the teachers at Reach are Gambians. The school also receives volunteers through WEC International to work in the school. 


The goal is to provide good education for the children, but also share God’s love with them and pass on wisdom for their life. The everyday life of the school can be challenging and exciting at the same time. The children are full of energy and surprises.


Rev. Edward and Mrs. Patience Jatta
