To meet the growing demand at Loumen we have committed to the building of an additional classroom.
Due to the increasing number of children from Kumbija wishing to attend school (which is great news in itself) we have met with the Head Teacher and others from the village and agreed to construct 2 new classrooms. Work on the project commenced in early December 2022.
Our final project for the 2021/22 academic year was at the Alieu Badera senior school where we converted a run down classroom into a library.
We were so pleased and excited to announce in the summer of 2021 that we were going ahead with our first new school project since Loumen in February 2013, with the building of an entire new school at N'Jalal Samba.
The ever expanding school roll at Kumbija has meant a new classroom was needed and after the success of our libraries at our other schools we started the construction of both in December 2019.
The building of The Otley Library at Kunkujang Lower Basic School started in February 2019 & was completed in April 2019. As you can see the library is now (Nov 2019) being well used and appreciated.
In April 2019 we launched an on-going tree planting project in all our schools, providing both practical and educational benefits.
We were thrilled to be chosen as one of the charities to benefit from Otley Lord Mayor’s charity appeal for 2017-2018. The very generous donation from Mayor Nigel Francis and his team has enabled us to go ahead with the building of a library for the 2119 pupils at Kunkujang Lower Basic School.
We spent a few fun days in December 2018 freshening up the walls at Kunkajang Keitaya Annex Nursery School. Great art work from Laura Neimantas.
After successfully building new teachers quarters at our school in Kumbija, during the winter of 2018/19 we repeated the exercise at our school in Loumen.
