Karmic Angels, an international charitable organisation headed by British couples, Alan and Stephanie Tuner has build three Nursery schools for the communities of Brikama Madina, Brikama Daruhiru and Faraba Bantang in the West Coast Region.
The Gambia and UK-based philanthropic organisation also donates sporting material to Faraba Bantang Football Academy, over the weekend. The donated sporting gears include a set of football jerseys, balls among others items.
Karmic Angels recently visited the three schools they’ve built in order to ascertain state of affairs, and as well held a brief meeting with the school authorities and told The Voice that they were impressed with what they saw.
Mr. Kawsu Saidy, a teacher at Brikama Medina expressed gratitude to Karmic Angel, while noting that the building of the school will go a long way in providing access to education for the community.
“Education is the key to success and he who supports education, support success and whosoever is successful will fulfill his vision in life,” he said.
The Alkalo (village head) of Brikama Medina Baba Gitteh noted the significance of Karmic Angel’s intervention to his community. “Our children were attending schools in faraway places and this has had a disadvantage to the children going to and from school,” he said. “The school is made up of two class rooms and a staff room.
The Founder and Co-Founder of Karmic Angels, Alan and Stephanie Tuner informed the gathering that they have more plans to help the community and the school and will surely increase the number of sponsored children in future.
Karmic Angel said they are looking forward to raising more funds in the United Kingdom to help meet the needs of the schools, the children and their community.
Karmic Angels also donated sporting materials to Farato Football Academy, Future Life Football Academy at Kotu, Liverpool FC and Young Arsenal FC at Lamin, Boyz United in Gunjur, and four other teams at Old Jeshwang and Busumbala respectively.
In another development, Karmic Angels in partnership with the International Business College (IBC) recently held a fashion and talent show to raise funds for a study-trip to the Senegalese capital, Dakar.
The show coincided with the 1st Edition of the Face of IBC at a well attended function held at the Dunes Hotel in Kololi, of which Cecilia Jatta was confirmed winner of the maiden edition of “Face of IBC”.
The organizers said the show was also aimed at encouraging female students to be articulated and nurture their academic competence and eloquence in public speaking.
In March 2010, during a courtesy call to the Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Karmic Angels donated some health materials to the Ministry. Source – The Voice Newspaper
