Sir Farimang Singhateh Foundation Gains AFRIFAMU award

The Sir Farimang Singhateh Foundation was recently honored in February 2020 with a Community Achievement Award for its resilience in education development and healthcare development in The Gambia. At a ceremony held a fortnight ago at the World’s entertainment capital, the CEO of the Foundation, Foday Singhateh was on hand to receive the award. AFRIFAMU, the Organization that presented the award emphasized the achievements made by the Foundation in so short a period since its inception.
The Foundation named for Foday’s Father, Sir Farimang Singhateh, the first Gambian Governor General has been a vibrant contributor in many areas of national development. Among the many things done thus far are the provision of medical equipment to three hospitals in The Gambia, replacing the basketball goal posts at Saints with standardized NBA fiber glass goal posts, a State of the art bakery to provide bread at reasonable and affordable prices, and recently just kicked off a Library project in Janjabureh. Quizzed on where he got this drive to give back, Foday could not have said it better than,” I may not have known my Dad too well, but my Mother, the graceful Lady Fanta has taught us that our Dad’s preoccupation was Public Service and Philanthropy and I believe to effectively preserve and honor his legacy we must set out to do what he did.”
The Foundation has not held back, they are on a productive offensive and its safe to say, by the time they are done; they surely would have finished the work started by Sir Farimang and hopefully it takes them thru Tambacounda and Basse, two places Sir Farimang Singhateh tended to via Healthcare and Kindness.
In a nutshell, Foday Singhateh has set out to fulfill the uncompleted work of Sir Farimang Singhateh a Man revered for his Humanitarian work and philanthropy. With the support of The Gambia’s first First Lady. Agi Fanta Singhateh known to all she crossed paths with as Agi Basse, Foday together with his siblings have set out on a mission of giving and caring. This mission is certainly not unfamiliar territory for they were born into it.
Karmic Angels wholeheartedly congratulate them and support them in all their project activity and our continued collaboration is beginning to pay dividends.
