'Please help'-Let's improve lives..... I was touched and inspired and also deeply disturbed by my findings at a local school in the Gambia.
The school was the size of a shed, the smell of mould and damp was breathtaking, inside were 25 children aged 3-7yrs and two teacher's who beamed and we're proud to show me their school.
I have never seen such passion and commitment than that I experienced from the teachers that day, the children were hungry for education. All the books and learning material had been destroyed by termites, the tin roof had holes, children shared dried bread as they had to have lunch to come to school (many children walked up to 10 miles daily in poorly fitting footwear with trodden down backs)
The two teacher's worked wage free and prayed and kept hope that someone would come and support them to keep their school open.
The head teacher was proud to show me the toilet he had built, it was amazing but heartbreaking at the same time.
I am flying to the Gambia on the 16th January and help raising funds to move this school to a more suitable building, provide books and stationery and games, footwear, containers for storage to stop termites, desks, chairs/benches, tools for building, storage, a meal of rice daily for all who attend, pots to cook, toilet facilities, clean water, roof, wages £30.00 monthly for 2 teachers, £30 monthly for rice. Dad is coming to build and repair and I am going to do everything within my power to give these amazing humans the school they deserve.
If you can donate any learning materials, tools, books, plimsoles, uniform, stationery, time or experience to this project . I want to hear from you.
I have an apartment with a spare bedroom for anyone who wants to help for £150 weekly with breakfast provided. Let's fund raise together and make something amazing happen 💚💖❤💙
