The ex-students of Muhammadan Primary School in collaboration with their Gambian partners based in Oslo and Bergen in Norway continue to give priority to helping the school-going children, particularly those of their former school.
The items included a three-in-one printer, two desktop computers, a laptop, second-hand clothes and tables, among others, which were donated to Muhammadan Primary School.
The donation also included a computer set each to Banjul City Council and to Crab Island Upper Basic School.
Momodou Jobarteh alias Jobes, an ex-student, and Samba Njie, on behalf of the executive members, made the presentations.
According to the donors, this was the third year the ex-students were coming with such a gesture to the schools.
School authorities witnessed the presentation ceremony, as well as representatives from the Education ministry, and parents among others.
Muhammadan school head-teacher, Alhagie Cham, commended the donors for the gesture and promised to ensure proper care and good use of the equipment by the students.
Crab Island head-teacher, Abdoulkarim Danner, welcomed the gesture, and thanked the donors.
He said they are in urgent need of the IT equipment for the improvement of the school.
