Gambia: Dara Al Muhtarem Quranic School Solicits Support for the Construction of a Classroom Block

Learning and teaching have temporarily been brought to a halt at Dara Al Muhtarem Quranic School in Bundung Borehole, following the collapse of the school structure a few months ago, thus forcing the school authorities and pupils to conduct lessons in makeshift structures. The school authorities bemoaned the unfavourable condition under which children are currently learning and called on good Samaritans to come to their aid by financing the construction of one classroom block with a dimension of 7m x 5m.

Talking to Foroyaa, El Sheikh Kabiro Saidy, the school head teacher, expressed concern over the untold condition under which his pupils are learning. He lamented his inability to address the issue due mainly to financial constraints that continue to besiege the institution. He therefore solicits support from individuals, non- governmental organizations and other good Samaritans to come to the aid of the school. "Allah the Almighty says in the holy Qur'an that whatever good you send forth for yourselves, you shall find it with Allah yea better and greater in reward", he revealed.

According to El Sheikh Saidy, the projected total amount that is needed to construct a classroom block with a dimension of 7m x 5m is tagged at D17, 960.00 (Seventeen thousand, nine hundred and sixty dalasi only). He can be reached on phone at 6883317 or 9883317.
