“We thank Allah the Almighty for opening an opportunity to partner with MoBSE because the two institutions are one and we will continue to partner for the benefit of the future leaders of The Gambia.”

Madam Conteh commended the Minister of Basic and Secondary Education minister, Claudiana A. Cole for the support she renders to the women, adding that it is because of trust that was why they are partnering with MoBSE.
