Insight Training Centre has received a donation of electric, carpentry and building materials from Lycee de Garcons Esch-Sur-Alzett School in Luxembourg.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony held on Monday at Insight Training Centre in Sinchu Alhagie village, Ismaila Ceesay, principal of Insight Training Centre, thanked the donors for their gesture, saying the donation was a ‘big surprise’ to them.

He said he hoped the relationship between the two schools would continue to go from strength to strength.

He also thanked the Gambia government for making it possible for Insight Training Centre to operate in the country as well as the community of Sinchu Alhagie village for giving them a land for free to build the school.

Salieu Ceesay, Alkalo of Sinchu Alhagie village, commended the donors, saying: “This is a big thing to us and we will forever remember this day because you are helping the youths of this country.”

He added: “We thank you for your contribution towards the development of this country.”

Lute Thierry, head of delegation from Luxembourg, in his remarks, said they were happy to render help to the centre to promote its services to the community and the nation.

He also thanked the community of Sinchu Alhagie for the warm welcome accorded them, adding that their school would continue to maintain a good and fruitful relationship with the centre.

Sia Jongeneel, director and founder of Sinchu Alhagie Orphanage, who is the link between the two schools, said she was glad to be part of the gathering.

“Education is the key to success and the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow,” she said.

Mrs Jongeneel says their aim is to provide clean drinking water to the community of Sinchu Alhagie. “If we work together we will achieve the same goal,” she added.
