One of The Gambia’s lower basic schools urgently needs help. Until September 15 last year, Jiffin, a village situated few miles from Soma town in the Lower River Region, was without a school. Despite being located in a small village, the new school has a total pupil population of 141. But the school needs support to serve its purpose of being a conducive learning institution. The school’s management, in collaboration with Parents Teacher Association, has identified that Jiffin Lower Basic Schools urgently needs furniture: chairs, tables, and lockers. The school also needs stationeries, taps and staff quarters. It is in this regard that the school’s headmaster Abdoulie Sabally is soliciting support in cash or kind from individuals and philanthropic organisations to guarantee good learning environment for future leaders of the country. Investment in the education of any future generation of a community or country is second to none, which is why natives of Jiffin desperately want to have their own school. Their goal is to have a school that provides quality education for their children. Those willing to help can do so through Tumani Dembajang who can be contacted at +220 770-4556.
