Hello, I am Jabel Ceesay, the secretary to Baobab Youth Development Association. We are most thankful for your contributions to developing The Gambia by supporting our youth’s education.
Many of the 19 students you sponsor never thought they would have the opportunity to attend school because their parents didn't go to school. The benefits of this scholarship cannot be overemphasized. It gives students the opportunity to go to school and be genuine members of society.
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.
Last year was our first year of sending donors, like yourself, a thank you video from the student you sponsor. Sending the videos to the donors was a bit complex as it was the first time. However, it was good for donors to see and hear directly from their beneficiaries.
