2014, Feb. 13-14 Payment of School Fees
A major component of our work in The Gambia is supporting children in school. We primarily support orphaned students – paying the school fees, the school badge cost, paying for 2 uniforms, 2 pairs of shoes, books, supplies and a daily lunch. Some of our program beneficiaries are below:
Today and yesterday we visited Banjulinding Primary and Upper Basic Schools to connect with the children we are supporting. At fundraising events in Seattle, donors have the opportunity to purchase a backpack full of school supplies for $75. Those backpacks were given out here.
