vice president of the republic of the Gambia and minister of women’s affairs
Aja Fatoumatta Jallow-Tambajang, on Friday presided over at the Alliance Française
and the celebration of its 70 years and pledged $1, 000 US as her contribution
to support the project of the French school to be built.
The ceremony was held at Alliance Française in Banjul and was graced by the French ambassador, Senegalese high commission and other dignitaries of the Alliance Française.
VP expressed delights, saying Alliance Française has exposed Gambians in both language and culture. “The money given to you is my personal pledge, it is not from the government,” she said. “I don’t want to waste the tax payers’ money because I love to give out my own money rather than using the government’s money for gifts.”
The chairman of the board of Alliance Française Cherno Omar Barry thanked the people present and also hailed the present executive for their commitment.
