Back

This is a selection of the sponsored children from Makumbaya Lower Basic School

They might look like a tough lot but these are some of the poorest children who live in atrouchious conditions in rural Gambia, up untill recently most of these children had no shoes and had to walk miles to get to school each day, yet every one of them was desperate to better themselves in the hope that through getting a better education it might leed to a way out of the poverty trap. Most of these children had previously graduated from Mason Nursery School when the school was held in an old goat shed at Bafuloto, before the new school building was completed.
