The Headmaster of Herman De Groot Foundation Nursery School (F.N.S) in Old Yundum, Western region has said that his school needs fencing, electricity, sporting and learning materials, sponsors for needy children, portable drinking water for students and teachers salaries.

Mr. Amadou Bah made this call over the weekend during an interview with The Point at his office. According to him, his school was established in September 1995 by a group of volunteers. He said the establishment of his school, located just 80 metres away from Old Yundum village coastal road junction in Region two, emanated from the pressing needs of the community of Old Yundum village. He added that the villagers are experiencing rapid increase in the number of young children of school-going age. Based on this development, Mr. Bah went on, some concerned young men came together voluntarily to teach at the school free of charge. According to Mr. Bah, his school started with an enrolment of 20 students but now he can boast of an enrolment of over 80 students and he thanked Herman De Groot Foundation, based in Emmen of Holland, for their assistance at his school. Any help for Mr. Bah's school can dial the following numbers; 9984721, 4496713 or e-mail nursery@yahoo.co.uk.
