Angels Sittanunku Nursery School Inaugurated 26th January 2013

The Classroom Block For The Nursery Children in Sittanunku

We travelled across to the North Bank of the Gambia on Friday 25th January 2013 on a delapidated ferry with cows, goats and everything that a Gambian wanted to trade with. We arrived to a fantastic reception on the Juffereh (the Roots Kunta Kinteh village) road (thats if you can call it a road) at the village of Sittanunku where we were due to inaugurate our 3 classroom school with teacher’s office, store and toilet block. There must have been 200 men, women and children to greet us all singing their tribal welcome song.

Thank you all for your support for this and your continued support towards Karmic Angels goals in the Gambia.
