Association for the Support of Grassroots Communities (ASGC) on Saturday donated tables, books, blazers and color pencils to The Gambia Community Library Project Pilot project in Kafuta, Kombo East.

The materials were courtesy of Tallinding South Ward Development Committee headed by Councillor Karamo Ceesay.

The items loaded in a 40-foot container were donated to the Tallinding South Ward Development Committee by Ebou Mala's Children Charity Foundation (EMCCF), a non-profit humanitarian foundation dedicated to helping alleviate the suffering of children and their families in Africa in collaboration with the National Police Aid Convoys (NPAC) UK, a group comprising police officers who venture in to humanitarian assistance to local communities across Africa.

Receiving the items, Alieu Sowe, project manager of Gambia Community Library Kafuta Chapter, thanked the donors for their philanthropic move.

The donated items, he said, would go in a long way in improving the reading culture among school going children in the village.

Mr Saloum Sheriff Janko, Secretary General of Association for the Support of Grassroots Communities hailed Tallinding South Councilor, Karamo Ceesay and his Ward Development Committee for the service they are rendering to local communities.

 “Councilor Ceesay and his Ward Development Committee are doing great for the Tallinding Community by initiating scores of projects ranging from education, health, works at the cemetery, street lighting project as well as the sleeping police projects in the community, among others.”

Musa Kanteh, chairman of the Association for the Support of Grassroots Communities, equally thanked the donors for their support and called on the other donors to emulate Tallinding Councillor and Ebou Mala’s Foundation.

Karamo Ceesay, Councillor of Tallinding Ward said he has embarked on series of projects for the benefit of communities, further promising that more supports are in the offing not only for Tallinding Ward but other communities in the country.
