I'd like to just say again what an amazing experience we had at the school and the compound. Myself and my children were completely blown away and felt humbled by the kindness we were shown. After the beautiful and very emotional welcome we were given from the children and staff at the school, we had a short meeting with the head teacher who told us all about the school and the support from the charity. We were then welcomed into each classroom where we saw the amazing effort and work each teacher puts in, the teachers were outstanding! The children from each class sang a little song before we left, they were all so lovely. Next we had a dance and a kind of ceremony where we were given Gambian names in the shade of the unbelievably huge tree. We left the school feeling so privileged to have met such kind, beautiful people. We then went to a compound where we were shown around and told about life there. We were made to feel so welcome, we played with the children a little, while the lovely ladies prepared us an utterly delicious meal of benachin and domoda. The food was out of this world!! I can't express just how much gratitude I have for the family for making us feel so comfortable in their home and there are no words to indicate what a fabulous day we had. It was a day myself and my children learnt so much and we will never forget it. Thank you again so much to all involved and a special thank you to Sandy and her amazing team who made it such an enjoyable experience xxx
