Finish volunteers recently trained teachers of Gambia Organization of the Visually Impaired (GOVI) School on how to teach, as part of their drive to equip the teachers with more teaching skills.
Speaking to our reporter yesterday at the GOVI Resource Centre in Kanifing, Marjatta Lehtinen, a member of the volunteers, said they started supporting GOVI three years ago and have donated 40 desks and chairs and office tables to the school.
Lehtinen said they have also trained GOVI School teachers on Abacus Braille Mathematics, painting and waving for three weeks.
Lehtinen also commended GOVI School teachers for their commitment and hard work, saying they would continue rendering support to GOVI School.
Lehtinen seized the opportunity to call on the teachers to make best use of the knowledge gained from the training.
She described GOVI School head teacher Ali Sallah as committed and hard working, saying she would love to come back to The Gambia next time.
Head teacher Ali Sallah hailed the Finish volunteers for training his teachers, saying the training was timely and the knowledge gained from it would aid the teachers in their teaching skills.
Mr Sallah assured the volunteers that the donated items and the knowledge from the training would be utilised properly.
