Hello, I am Jabel Ceesay, the secretary to Baobab Youth Development Association. With regards to the Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership scholarship program, I am responsible for tracking the students’ performance and progress of their education.
The benefits of this scholarship cannot be overemphasized. It gives students the opportunity to go to school and be genuine members of the society. Many of the 18 students never thought they would have the opportunity to attend school because their parents didn't go to school.
Fatoumatta J Bah, for instance, use to sell water on the streets for the family's upkeep. Nonetheless, with the intervention of the scholarship program, she is now on the verge of graduating from high school.
This year was our first year sending donors video thank you notes versus letter via mail. If you are a donor and have not gotten yours, it will come soon.
