Story

When you cast your mind back to your primary school days, I bet your memory clouds over into a fuzzy haze of nursery rhymes, colourful wall murals, playtime and stodgy school dinners, Happy memories, simple times.

During a recent trip to the Gambia, Western Africa, we found ourselves going off the beaten track, digging and delving into true Gambian life and really sinking our teeth into the rich colourful culture this country has to offer, upon our travels we found ourselves in the principals office of a rather small school just out of Banjul in the town of Brufut; being in a principals office without having been up to mischief prior was a new thing for me. Alas, we were in deep convosation with the headmaster, we discussed how WE could help the school, the children, staff, grounds, anything to help provide a fun, safe, comfortable learning and teaching enviroment for pupils and staff alike. Dont get me wrong, the staff do an amazing job! But i couldnt help but wonder, as i played with read too and laughed with these wonderful little people, people who have very very little, but seem so happy with

what they have, i wondered if there was anything I could do.... me, a 30year old mother of two, was there not something i could give back, was there not a way to help support these children??? I mean, EVERYBODY deserves the best start possible, dont they? These children have a good start, they are in school at least.... but isnt there anything i can do to boost that, really ensure the children get a really good solid start to their student lives? And grow and go on to do amazing things.

So I have set this up.

To raise money. Buy supplies that they so desparatley need, or uniforms for children whos parents simply cant afford to buy, food supplies to provide a nourishing meal, stationary, toys for the nursery school, clothes for babys, and sanitary products for young ladies.

And ship them over.

Thank you for your time!
