Bottrop project, through its coordinator Pa Aruna Jagana recently presented
desktop computers to six government and non-governmental institutions within
the West Coast Region.
The beneficiary institutions are; The Gambia Association of the Physically Disable, Regional Disaster Management Agency, Department of Social Welfare, Brikama District Hospital, Regional Youth and Sports office and Kaira Nyining Community radio station.
Handing over the equipment to the beneficiaries at the governor’s office in Brikama, Mr. Jagana said the Bottrop project attaches great importance to the socio-economic advancement of the people of The Gambia.
The donated items, he said, would help beneficiaries in daily office management, enhance work productivity and reduce the burden of work load.
Founder and head of the Bottrop Project Wolfang Gerrits said they have been helping schools and institutions that are in need of help, by offering support on humanitarian purpose and to instil hope in some of the less privileged people.
Governor Bakary K. Sanyang thanked the Bottrop project for their timely intervention, saying government alone cannot do everything.
While commending the Bottrop project for complementing government efforts, Governor Sanyang said these regional offices where neglected over the past years.
President of The Gambia Association of the Physically Disable, Edward Preirra said the computers will help them to keep records, improve accuracy and timeliness in their work.
“We are often being forgotten by not only members of the society but also by philanthropists. But we thank officials of the Bottrop project for their foresight.”
Regional Social Welfare coordinator Haruna Badjie expressed delight in receiving the items, adding that it came at a time when it is highly needed.
