Story

Oustas Wuyeh Njie is one of the most selfless, generous and charitable people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He is also one of the poorest people but despite that he has opened his home to over 30 orphans whom he provides for with his own family.

Mr Njie is also the headteacher of Darul Akram Orphan School where over one hundred orphans are able to go to school without paying fees and they learn alongside the other pupils. These children would not be able to learn without his dedication and determination to provide them with an education.

This all comes a cost; his and his family’s self sacrifice but also money. His home needs extending and repairing. The school has been so successful it has now grown from a nursery to a primary and now into a secondary school, but although they have had land donated for all of this they need the funds to carry out the building work.

    Wow over £500 thank you so much people - you’re brilliant and I’m so grateful! I’ve just returned from The Gambia and went to see the new school site and obviously the staff and students. At the new site the classroom furniture and blackboards they’d been using had been destroyed by arson! However Stamshaw Infants School have donated money to cover the cost of replacements. Next step a roof before the rainy season starts in June! I’ll post the photos and video I took. THANK YOU!!!
