Ba Musa Ceesay and Arfang, both from the Ceesay family, have donated 10 laptops to the Mayor of Banjul, Rohey Malick Lowe for onward delivery to the youths of Banjul so that deserving city students can study from home during current school closures caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“When we heard that many Banjul students weren’t going to be able to learn from home without laptops, we quickly decided we wanted to help and provide these students and their teachers, with the technology they need to begin learning online,” Mayor Lowe said on Thursday.
She thanked the Ceesay family for assisting city students to be able to learn while staying at home. She promised her unflinching support for the education of the youths of Banjul.
Presenting the laptops on behalf of the Ceesay family, a former long term resident of Norway Mr. Sheikh Tejan Nyang, said the gift aims to complement BCC by enhancing the education of the city’s school children. The plan is to donate more computers in the short term, and Banjul students will be trained to support the distance learning in the meantime.
