Prime Stationery supports Fatima SSS with building materials

Jul 23, 2020, 10:59 AM | Article By: Sanna Jallow

Prime Stationary, yesterday supported Fatima Senior Secondary school in Bwiam with building and learning materials.

The materials included 60 pieces of corrugated iron sheets, books and other necessary furniture. The move followed a recent report published on The Point newspaper in which the school’s authorities appealed for donor intervention.

Chandan Tulsiani AKA Mr. Charles, administrative secretary of Prime Stationery said they provided the support after reading a news article on The Point Newspaper in which the school authorities solicit support to fix the poor structures in the school.

Mr Charles said the gesture is part of fulfilling their corporate social responsibility to help the school.

“We decided that with our budget we could provide resources to support the school with corrugated iron sheets and other materials to enable students to achieve quality education.”

He expressed delight to support the school with the belief that teachers would give students quality education. “We intend to continue to give our support to schools especially government schools with quality exercises books with their school name printed on them.”

Mr. Charles said they don’t only support schools but also communities and police stations in The Gambia.

Philip Bass, principal of Fatima Senior Secondary School, thanked Prime Stationery for their support, saying since the start of the school, it has been very difficult for them.

“It is very difficult to see students sitting in class rooms with water staining them. But I am happy that our students will now sit comfortably in their various classes and learn.”

Andrew Gomez, Chairman of the School’s board of governors said they appreciate the contribution that Prime Stationery is doing in the Gambia.
