The construction of the new technical school is progressing steadily. Please help us to equip the classrooms! Donate surplus tools or support us with a financial contribution.
Last Monday, Karamba Saidybah, on behalf of Karamba Foundation and the residents of Toniataba, under the watchful eye of Gambian television, signed for the transfer of the land for the construction of a new technical school. The construction can start!!!
… but this is where the “Senior Secondary School” will soon rise!
In June 2020 we told you about our plans to set up a vocational school for the children in Toniataba and Soma, Gambia. And now the time has finally come, the construction has been approved, indeed, next September the school will already be completed!
The construction itself is financed by the MRC-Holland Foundation (www.foundation.mrc-holland.com), the running costs are covered by the Mobse, Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (www.eduagambia.gm) and we are responsible for furnishing the practical classrooms.
So there is no time to lose, and that is why we are diligently looking for generous donors. Would you like to help us? You can help us in several ways:
- By donating materials to equip the practice rooms (tools, workbenches, etc.)
- By making a financial donation
- And of course by spreading this message as much as possible!
- Will you help us?
From the pieces of cloth that remain after making the bags (see our previous post), volunteers Marina van Veen and Bep de Vries make pen cases for the school children in Toniataba, Gambia. We fill the cases with pens and pencils, donated by Open Doors. Do you have any school supplies left? We will be very happy with them!
