African Orphans (SAO); a Gambia and US registered non-profit charity
organisation in the state of Washington, United States have donated 12 bags of
rice and clothing to Orphans at Wullinkama Islamic school, last Saturday.
organisation was founded by Njemeh Bah; a US-based Gambian female journalist
and social worker to support African underprivileged Orphans and their families
by giving them hope for a bright future.
at the handing over ceremony, Lady Njemeh said the charity maintains a 501 (C)
(3) status that earns it tax-exemption qualification.
said, she created the charity to help Orphan, saying she was raised by her late
mother and was a victim of early marriage that upset her early education and
became a single mother. “I dreamt of a world without poverty; a world in which
all persons have the freedom and opportunities to pursue happiness and achieve
their maximum potential,” she added.
Jarju, English teacher at Jawhariatou Islamic school thanked Lady Njemeh and
her team for the support they gave to Jawhariatou orphans, saying they would
still need support in the provision of tables, chairs, blackboards, classrooms
and other educational materials.
