This report is intended to give an update of progress so far in relation to the Basori project Gambia.
The picture above is children of the Basori Village re-integrated in to homes and rejoin in to school.
Due to high rate of unemployment and increasing poverty children are vulnerable in dropping out of school and eventually ending up in the street or a stay at home child leaving them with no hopes of what the future holds.
Our project team has been very active in re-integrating these children in to homes and re-joining them back to school. As part of our commitment to empower these children we provide school supplies and other basic amenities to support their studies and development
Today we visited the school in the village of Basori to support these children from donations received from GlobalGiving and we were overwhelm with the progress and commitment of these children
We are glad to state that our engagement with GlobalGiving has giving us confidence that we will be able to re-integrate and empower these children.
Although less than 3% of the funds required are donated we were able to donate school supplies and clothing to these children to cover the whole of the first term from September to December 2018. We believe this is a great achievement as the community is beginning to gain confidence and recognize our work as the children are progressing steadily within the shortest time of our involvement in the village.
The head master of the school express appreciation and thank the Organisation for the impact our organization is making in the village as well as making a special request which he refer to as pressing needs of the school to support these children.
He requested our organization to help the school in digging an extra borehole to supply water as the present one of the schools cannot carry the demand of the school.
He also requests our assistance in fencing the school. He said that the unfence school is making it difficult in controlling the children as well as exposing them to danger from outsiders.
To all donors and potential donors we thank you for helping us reaching out to these children as we believe this is the beginning of our commitment to serve. We consider the plea from the head masters very urgent as we hope to receive your support when launched.
We are sure that you are happy your donations is giving hope to these children and building a healthy community.
Your continued support is requested for us to be able to meet our target in continuously engaged in making a difference in these children education and social lives.
Please start a monthly recurring donation for a small amount as these will help us reach out to many more and make this community healthy.
Thank you for supporting SCEO and we look forward for your continued support.
