Shipping of school supplies February 2019
One normal morning, just before class, a load of textbooks, notebooks, colors, backpacks, and other different gifts arrived. The children of 4 schools in the Gambia, received about 30 boxes of necessary school supplies to reinforce their classes and meet needs.
The Gambia is a small country, where going to school is, if not a luxury, at least an OVER EFFORT in capital letters. Eating, dressing, accessing education, health, basic things that for us is sewing and singing, is uncertain, and inconsistent in the homes of each family. Our way of understanding the educational and health system has nothing to do with that of other countries in the world. In Africa, you pay by trimester, and if you don't pay, you don't study. That means that children do not have access to education if they do not pay their tuition regularly and on time. I do not know if we are capable of understanding how the world works outside our borders and how tremendously difficult it is for children to train and create a future in the midst of the very precarious situation in this country. That is why sending school supplies is so necessary for the children and teachers of the schools there. Any help is a party.
“Anike Foundation”, along with “Heart n Hands” and “Global Aid Foundation”, joined forces and were able to deliver all the material with great enthusiasm this February 4, 2019.
Currently, work is being done in the schools of Gambia, whose doors are opened, every week, to share the gospel, and contribute with shipments like this one. We continue to set our sights on the most disadvantaged people and places, trusting that this contribution can bless, help and drive another step forward in the education and future of the very young in The Gambia.
We thank God for the collaboration and love of those who have made this possible. And we continue to pray for changes and opportunities to continue to be part of God's movement in The Gambia. Help us in this!
