Mr Ceesay said the donation was the latest among a series conducted in Lamin town and other places adding that he will continue as the foundation expands.
Mr Mafugie Kujabie, the deputy headmaster of the beneficiary school commended the foundation and explained that the donation will help the pupils with more reading materials and reference books to enhance their education.
Another member of staff welcomed the foundation members and encouraged them to consider extending more support to the school which has an enrolment of 288.
