New Life Children's Centre has been providing education and a future for African children for 20 years now, through the provision of educational and now medical support as well as through the establishment of children's churches in Africa's smallest nation, the Gambia. NLCC now has two schools and educates 1,300 students a week, supporting another 700 through its outreach and Christian education programmes.
In a country of 1.5 million with approximately half the population under 14, the average age being 17, life expectancy just 52, the work of New Life Children’s Centres is making a huge difference in the lives of these African children.
The directors of the work are Ken and Sylvia Morgan based at the Everyday Champions Centre, Newark. A management board consists of 8 trustees who are responsible to the Charity Commissioners for the operating of the charity. In The Gambia, 55 full time staff including teachers, administrators and outreach workers are employed.
