AYA donates to model nursery, LBS

By Olimatou Coker

Action for Youth Africa recently donated 42 cartoons of books including toys, clothing and three tablets to Model Nursery and Lower Basic School in Bundung central.
Co-founder and AYA trustee Elicia Gardner said 20 thousand pounds was also donated, and that a college in UK has gathered over 800 books to be shipped for the school.
A charitable non-profit organization, AYA was founded some six years ago, and one of its aims is to work to ensure people in local communities live a dignified life and create their own industries.
She advised students to read “harder” and make best use of the school’s library.
“We will continue donating. There are students here with a bright future and I think by investing in them, we can give them a very good future,” she said.
Musa Saidy, AYA director, said parents and other stakeholders need to work harder in preparing children for a better tomorrow.
AYA chairman Kebba Jobe, Hassan Glassay Kamara and Ms Isatou Touray Williams, the Proprietress of the school, also spoke at the presentation.
