Gambia: Still Looking for Financial Assistance for Further Education

Education is the most necessary enterprise for all human development on earth, without it nothing works. As a result two young boys namely; Gibbi Dem and Yunusa Dem residing at Wellingara have completed their grade 9 at the Latrikunda Sabiji Upper Basic School. They are now to attend Masroor Senior Secondary School Grade 10 at Old Yundum but because of financial constraints, they are afraid their dreams may be shattered.

Gibbi Dem and Yunusa Dem, two brothers said they are looking for financial assistance to enable them continue with their education.

They said their parents who should have paid for them are now old and are now depending on others to survive. According to the two boys, the parents ask them to go and learn skills training like carpentry etc which they said is not their calling as of now.

The two said their Uncle, one Chorno Bah who brought them from the village and was responsible for all their educational cost from grade 7-9, unfortunately passed away in 2011, and there is no one to help them financially in their educational pursuit.

The total bill for all the needs of the two desperate young boys amount to D6350 for each of them.

These students are very eager to continue their schooling and are looking forward to anyone or institution that may wish to assist them. They can be contacted on this telephone number: 7683395 / 9242276 or Foroyaa: 4393177.
