Officials of Beakanyang Organisation (Equal Opportunities for All) in the Upper River Region have commended Africell through its Cash Chamber promotion for the unique opportunity given to the organisation to enter into the cash chamber.
Addressing members of the organisation recently at Beakanyang head office in Barrow Kunda, Wuli West, the President of Beakanyang Mr. Tumani Danjo commended Africell for the opportunity and support given to them by the telecommunication giant. He encouraged more people to patronise Africell, hence their support is being received by all and sundry.
The gesture, he said, has made it possible for the organisation to complete some of its projects in the area. He however maintained that yet more other projects need funding, and thus called on other institutions to emulate Africell by coming up with a surprise for the organisation.
"It's interesting to note that Africell as of now has the best network coverage in this community," said an active member of Beakanyang Ms. Meta Jaiteh.
Addressing the gathering, the Secretary-General of Beakanynag and the man who personally entered into the cash chamber, Mr. Nfamara Jawneh thanked Africell for the support rendered to his organisation.
He informed the members that the gesture is part of Africell's contribution to the development of grassroots organisations. He used the occasion to challenge members of the organisation to remain committed to the cause of Beakanyang.
"To ensure a more sustainable development, all of us must be committed to our cause," he said.
Prior to the meeting, Jawneh also handed over packets of corrugated iron sheets, bags of cement, cap nails and cash to the project implementation committee of Beakanyang, to support its ongoing projects in the community. He encouraged the workers at various project sites to speed up their works since they were able to tap some funding.
"Proper utilisation of these limited resources is very important for that it cause me and Africell to make it happen," he stressed.
Various speakers commended Nfamara Jawneh for his love and care for the community and the country as a whole.
In a related development, officials of Beakanyang on Friday paid a courtesy call on the Deputy Governor of URR at his office in Basse. The visit was meant to brief the regional authorities once more about their activities, challenges and to seek for more support.
