Helping others to help themselves.
A few snaps of our recent revisit to Jamisa Lower Basic School in Brikama can be seen on the site as well as at our Facebook Page ( Dance2Learn.org).
It was lovely to see the school flourishing!
A surprise came through the letter box today, all the way from France... a card with a generous cheque inside for the next round of Wakawaka Solar Lights.
Dominique's gift will buy around 8 lights... One WakaWaka lights a home of 6-8 people... basically, safe, free light for around 50 people for at least 10 years!!! Wow, thank you sooo much on their behalf. Incroyablement gentille!!
What a great Christmas present!
Love "The Dance2Learn Team"
The thank you letter written to our local post office (here in Bassaleg) was handed over today. It reads "We of the above named school say a big thank you to the Post Office Lady for her generous gift of pencils - Sheriff Baye H/M (headmaster)
Thank you many many times. God bless you."
Difficult for us to grasp but the school, Jamisa Lower Basic in Brikama Gambia has over 3.5 thousand children yet the headmaster needed to search hard to find a piece of unused paper!
At last the photos from our recent trip to The Gambia to see the results of the Bring Home the Light Project are here! If you look closely, you can see the Wakawaka lights charging on the roofs of the compounds.
As well as these, there are images of one of the schools that The Gunjur Project Association are involved with as well as photos of the Project itself.
Click here to enjoy some smiles from those less fortunate than ourselves!
We're back from our latest trip to The Gambia with some great news and photos of the Waka-Waka lights in action. It's just a matter of sorting through the thousand or so pictures and videos in order to be able to post a visual report of the successful end of this first part of the project.
In the meantime we'd like to thank Jo Austin-Preece and all the volunteers at the Gunjur Project as well as Beppie Smits of Globergy for their invaluable help and support.
More coming soon! Watch this space ;-)
