Roots Nursery School fell in the storm

Roots Nursery School

The Roots Nursery School is located in the Sambuyang Madikulay village of The Gambia. The village has a population of 8,000 people; however, with only one other nursery in the area, hundreds of children are left loitering in the streets, waiting for a place. Once built, the Roots Nursery School will provide free education for 300 children aged between 3 and 6. There will be three grades and 3 classes in each grade. The School also aims to create a daycare centre.

Education is the key to development. In the new Sambuyang village of The Gambia, almost 90% of the inhabitants are illiterate. By focusing on the younger generation, the Roots Nursery School seeks to create a better future for the village.
