By Maimuna Sey-Jawo Effecting Real Change, a charitable foundation based in the United Kingdom UK registered in the Gambia and Indian, has boosted Bakau New Town Lower Basic School with a computer lab. Musa Saidy, the founder of Effecting Real Change, said the organisation is establishing the lab together with a project for the school called the Gambia Art Project. “Basically, the two projects are for the school—the construction of a computer lab which is currently under way as well as the Gambia Art Project. All this is geared towards boosting children’s knowledge and understanding of computer and art as a subject in their early ages,” he said. He said the projects are up and running because of a donation from different charitable organisations in UK at the tune of at least 12, 000 Pounds. He said the building of the computer lab started since 11 January 2017 and it is finally expected to finish this week. He said everything will be handed over to the school head mistress together with computers in the laboratory, noting that the volunteers are currently in the Gambia making sure that the work is complete. Musa also thanked the donors and urged them to continue doing more for Gambian children. Elicia Morgan while speaking on behalf of the donors, expressed gratitude to Bakau lower basic school for accepting the partnership. Madame Morgan assured them their commitment to continue doing more for the school as a charitable foundation. She also urged the school mistress to allow the students to use the computers.]]>
