The Bansang Swiss Project on Friday completed distribution of 120 tables and 240 chairs with a total estimated worth of D960.000 computers, educational materials and more to six schools in the Bansang area.

The Bansang Swiss project secured the donation of furniture from a highly regarded financial institution of the Vaud region of Switzerland, who was keen to contribute to the wellbeing of Gambian students.

Further donations included 7 SSD computers with screens; about 200 English teaching books from kindergarten to senior secondary level, including digital coursebooks, all presented in a workshop on-site; as well as high quality items of clothing for the sports teams. The handover ceremonies were held in each of the partner schools, namely Bansang Upper Basic School, Bansang Senior Secondary School, Dobangkunda Lower Basic School, Bansang Lower Basic School, Njoren Basic Cycle School, Daru Lower Basic School. Discussing the distribution, Nicola Ambrosi de Magistris Verzier, Treasurer of the association said: “We are thrilled to once again be able to work with our partners in Switzerland and The Gambia to deliver high value materials to support the students of the Bansang region. Philanthropy makes little sense without a plan, so we thank again our local coordinator Mr. Yahya Faal and the schools for their close collaboration in establishing their needs and for allowing us to deliver support for the youths, in turn, to the best of our abilities. Our longterm partnership grows stronger and will continue to do so.
