In her official launching, Madam Charlotte Barney expressed joy and appreciation to the parents who graced the launching of the breakfast program, saying “The school which was established by my late mum is very much concern about the welfare of children especially those studying in the school”. “My late mother has been coming to the school before her passing and always how she used feel seeing children coming to the school without food.

She used the opportunity to thank her partners from Sprout Mission based in California for helping make the dream a reality. The Chairman of the school parent teachers association, Modou Cham applauded the gesture describing it as a very timely and a worthy cause. “As far as education is concern providing food for children is very essential. This breakfast program will serve as a motivation and encouragement for the children to come to school and concentrate more on their education”. He further expressed his appreciation to the donors and founders of the school for making his work easier. “I will also like to advise the parents to cope with the PTA in the school and try to help the teacher, in ensuring that the kids turn up for school every day because the teachers cannot do it all alone. For our donors all i can say is that we are more than delighted to have this kind of gesture,” he added. He continue: “ We will continue to pray for the long life of the founder and let God give her the ability to find more fund to help school children in The Gambia”. Meanwhile, the secretary general of the school PTA, Mustapha Jatta expressed similar sentiment and commended both the sponsors and the headmaster of the school for the bold initiative and prayed for the sustainability of the program which he said will address some of the burdens on the children at the school.
