Charity Organisation over the weekend donated education and learning materials to
35 students of Bakau Primary School.
The presentation ceremony, which was held at the school’s ground included books, pencils, rulers, school bags, among other materials.
Parachute is a registered charitable organisation, based in the country with the aim of contributing towards the socio-economic development of the country, particularly in the area of education.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Lamin Njie, chairperson of the organisation, who is also the founder of Parachute, spoke at length about the significance of the donated materials.
He urged the beneficiary students to make the best use of the donated items.
Parachute charitable organisation, he explained, was established with the ultimate aim of supporting needy students, especially those who could not afford to buy education and learning materials.
“Two weeks ago, we did some charity works from Traffic Light to Westfield and the funds we accumulated are what we used to purchase these items we are donating to Bakau Primary School,” he stated.
The chairperson of the organisation lamented the lack of resources at his organisation, and according to him, at the moment they are focusing on Bakau Primary School.
Njie expressed hope that such benevolent gesture would continue, if the necessary funding is at their disposal.
The Head Master of the School, Saikou Ceesay, expressed appreciation to the donors, while describing the gesture as timely.
Ceesay explained that the 35 beneficiary students are the needy ones in his school, which was established in 1947.
