The School of Matravass in Westbury, Wiltshire County in the UK, has contributed to satisfying the water need of Gunjur Upper Basic School.

The school recently gained access to potable water when their counterpart in the UK installed taps there.

The Principal of the school, Mr Lamin Jatta, asserted that the availability of clean and safe drinking water in his school would reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases as well as enhance agricultural activities in the school. He added that the project would allow students and teachers to easily access water.

For her part, the Coordinator of Matravass School and Gunjur Upper Basic School link, Rachael Edwards, enthused that it 'is a pleasure' for her school to provide water to their sister school in The Gambia. She added that water is life and urged the beneficiaries to take greater care of the taps.
