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.
