As part of its cooperate social responsibility, Radville farm, an agro industry in The Gambia, recently donates food aids to Nemakunku lower Basic school and Toubakuta nursery school.
The donated items include twenty bags of 50 KG sugar, which were distributed amongst the two schools.
The items were for the school children, school committee and teachers respectively.
The presentation was done by Mr Sulayman Mboge on behalf of the management of Radville Farm Company.
Speaking at the presentation, Giberiel Bah, Alkalo of Nemakunku disclosed that Radville Farm Company has a long history in Nemakunku. He cited that since in the 1980s, Radville farm has been operating in Nemakunku.
According to the Alkalo, since then it has been a “win-win” situation between the community and Radville farm company.
He commended the management of Radville farm through Sulayman Mboge.
He also seized the opportunity and thanked Radville farm management on behalf of the Nemakunku communities for their “benevolent gesture”.
He said the gesture has come at the right time as people are in the middle of the holy month of Ramadan.
Also speaking, the head master of the school, Buba Bajo, thanked the Farm.
He said this “very generous gesture” was geared toward empowering and encouraging the school-going children. With 462 pupils, he said the significance of the donation cannot be overemphasised.
Bajo said the school was in fact initiated by Radville Farm who provided the land and built the school.
