Bunjeng Arabic School in Gunjur in Kombo South, West Coast Region, has embarked on construction of a new classroom block in the school but the exercise has been halted due to financial constraints.
As a result, the school is seeking support from the government, the private sector, philanthropists, donors, NGOs, companies and individuals to enable them complete the work.
In an interview with this reporter on Monday, Karamba Ceesay, a member of Bunjeng Arabic School management committee, said they want to expand the school because it is overpopulated, adding that they need extra classrooms to enroll more students.
According to Ceesay, they need to buy construction materials such as cement and corrugated iron sheets among others to complete the project.
“Construction exercise is halted due to financial constraints and we cannot finish the construction without funds,” Ceesay pointed out.
He also seized the opportunity to call on the government, the private sector, philanthropists, donors, NGOs, companies and individuals to come to their aid in order to finish the project and enroll many students who want to gain Arabic education in Gunjur and its satellite areas.
