Gambia – A Visit to Mason Nursery School

Gambia – A Visit to Mason Nursery School

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to visit the local nursery school when I was staying at the Mandina Lodges. My guide Mamadi and I walked for 20 minutes or so through the Makasutu Forest to get to Mason Nursery School. The teachers and children were delighted to see us and didn’t seem to mind the slight disruption to the school day. The parents pay for the kids to go to school and these fees pay for the teacher’s salaries. They don’t have enough funding for books, pens and free school meals. Sometimes they get donations from visitors to buy school materials or rice for the kids. I was delighted to be able to help.

    I have been lucky to visit schools in remote areas of Peru and Tanzania. It is always neat to see different school environments. The school children are always happy to see a visitor!
