Gambia: Grade 12 Student Appeal for Help to Settle School Fees

Mamadi Jaiteh, a Grade 12 student at the Nasir Ahmadiyya Senior Secondary School in Basse URR, is a Commerce student who should sit to his 1st Exams. He is a 20 year old who is very determined but desperate to complete his secondary education but the lack of fees is what is threatening his advance.

Mr. Jaiteh who hails from Mure Kunda, a remote village in the Wuli East District said he should sit to his final exams but is told that if he does not settle his bills he would be dropped. He said his parents are poor farmers and the 2011 crop failure has aggravated the situation of his family who has no means whatsoever to afford his education.

The school fees and other bills for Mamadi Jaiteh adds up to D3895.00(Three Thousand Eight Hundred and Ninety-Five Dalasis only).
