Dance to Learn, a UK-based charitable organization via Gunjur Project, recently donated Solar Lights (Waka Waka) to Gunjur Cultural Festival Committee.

Speaking in an interview with The Point, the chairman of Gunjur Cultural Festival Committee, Alagie Bojang, applauded Dance to Learn for its benevolent gestures.

The donated items, he said, would promote culture and boost the forthcoming cultural night set for later this year.

Omar N. Darboe, social secretary of Gunjur Cultural Festival Committee, said the donated solar lights (dubbed Waka Waka) by Dance to Learn will be sold at reasonable prices.

Darboe stated that the money gained from the sales of the lights will be used to fund the forthcoming Gunjur Cultural festival.

He also stated that the Cultural Committee had given Gunjur Village Development Committee D15,000 and D10,000 for Gunjur Upper and Senior Secondary Schools in line with the Gunjur cultural festival.

Mr Darboe hailed Dance to Learn for the “invaluable gesture”, saying the initiative would also promote culture.

He thanked Gunjur alkalo Alhagie Omar Darboe and Kombo South chief Alhagie Sheriff Ajeh Janneh for their support to the cultural committee.

Speakers on the occasion included Assan Darboe, a member of Gunjur Cultural Festival Committee, who also applauded Dance to Learn for the timely gesture.
