Future In Our Hands is well known in The Gambia for its quality and reliability in construction of school buildings. The Construction and Technical Training Program works withe contracts from both internal and external projects.
External projects form the majority of projects and are mainly received from the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE) through their Project Coordination Unit (PCU). The ministry has a number of donors namely UNICEF and the Fast Track Initiative (FTI) through the World Bank among others.
The school development program is working with in-service teachers training in order to enhance the quality of education in Gambian schools. An early grade reading methodology adapted for Gambian conditions has been developed together with the Swedish Publishing House Serhoit.
The program called SEGRA (Serhoit Early Reading Ability) has been implemented since 2009. The SEGRA methodology has one of the best results in the country by increasing a significant number of children who are able to read and write in early grades.
The Community Development Program is working for “poverty reduction through strengthened community based organisations/institutions with particular focus on rights-based advocacy and skills capacity building to enable poor and marginalized to improve their livelihood and independence through enhanced access to rights and democratic influence.”
