We were collected from our hotel by Sandy and Fansu on Monday 5th March. Sandy was excited to tell us that we were to be the first visitors to her new project at Kitty School. We arrived to a warm welcome from the whole school, all the children lining the streets and chanting our welcome, we really felt like royalty and it was totally overwhelming. Once at the school there was more singing and dancing before we were shown round each classroom most with no desks and a nearly empty storeroom. The head teacher then exitedly discussed his vision for the school. We were then taken to a friend's compound where we played with the children, drank green tea, had a wonderful lunch, and really got to experience real Gambian life. It truly was a most memorable day that has inspired us to continue to support Sandy in the wonderful work she is doing. Can't wait to return again next year.
