Karmic Angels, a charity operating in the UK and The Gambia recently handed over a newly built nursery school to the community of Sitanunku, in the Upper Niumi District, at a ceremony held at the village.
The charity which was founded in The Gambia by a British couple, Alan and Stephanie Turner, has been working in the country since 2008, with keen focus on four main areas such as education, health, agriculture and sports.
Speaking at the occasion, Governor Queen Jammeh extolled the humanitarian gesture of Karmic Angels, describing them as 'true friends of the district'.
He indicated that the school would go a long way in helping the village in its quest to have access to early childhood education for their kids. He added that the advent of the nursery school is also part of commitments aimed at complementing government's efforts in attaining early childhood education for the country.
"There cannot be any development without unity and strength," he said.
