By Maimuna Sey-Jawo Philanthropists from England have recently donated solar panels, computers, printing machines, among other items amounting to more than two hundred thousand dalasi to Kiang Nema Lower Basic School in the Kiang Central District of the Lower River Region. The materials are donated by Martin and Adrian from the ADM Computer Science Ltd in UK through their friend Yankuba Jawara of Nema Village. The items they added will go a long way in complementing the efforts of the school management in its quest to not only provide quality education but will also reduce the cost spent in preparing examination question papers for students. Speaking at the presentation ceremony held at the school ground, the coordinator of the project Yankuba Jawara spoke at length on the significance of the gesture, thus commended the donors for their humanitarian assistance, adding that similar occasion was held last year when the donors also supported the school. Mr. Jawara described the donors as development oriented people who prioritize the development of the country. “We have to understand that huge amount of money has been spent in purchasing these items for the school. They have to be used for their intended purpose in order to enhance students’ performance in the school,” he emphasized. The headmaster of the school, Masanneh Darboe, dwelled on the importance of the donated materials to the school. “We have to go up to the Greater Banjul Area which is almost 157 kilometers away from the school to prepare for our examination question papers for our students. But now having the printing machine in the school, it will reduce the cost and will also generate income for Nema Lower Basic School,” the headmaster added. “I am not going to compromise the use of these items and it is the responsibility of all of us to ensure the solar panels last. Now with solar panels students can even come for night classes,” the head master stated. Kemesseng Jawara, the village alkao of Kiang Nema and Sally Korta, a women leader, both thanked the donors. “The items belong to the school; therefore we will stand firmly in ensuring that they are used wisely. The entire women are happy for the continuous support of Martin and Adrian to the school and we will continue praying for them,” the women leader added. The headgirl, Kadijatou Jawara, commended the donors for the support, adding that it will help them to achieve quality education.]]>
