On Saturday 16th July 2022, during a ceremony held at the Bishop Crowther School, Cline Town Community, the Cline Town Educational Organization donated school items to 80 Nursery and Primary school pupils between the ages of 2 to 10 years.
Yasin Bah, the Chief Executive Officer of the organization, said that they’ve been in existence since 2013, and have done so many things in various ways to support pupils, students, and different works of life, adding that this will not be the last.
He continued that this is an initiative which is aimed mainly to support community people, regardless of age and works of life.
He maintained that this is not the first time they are giving such support to the community, adding that they have given so many opportunities to various individuals by creating different platforms in different ways, including paying full fees for university students with the best WASSCE results and also supporting others with their music careers, by taking them to the Balancia music academy.
He furthered that during the ceremony they will be giving school items to pupils between the ages of 2 to 10 years, to foster them and help fewer burdens on their parents for the next coming academy year.
He continued that they’ve also advocated for support to have a community empowerment institute, for those who are unable to further their education and they prayed and hoped their dreams may come to reality.
Yasin Bah also gave updates on their next moves on giving opportunities to those kids, by conducting free summer school classes for them before the reopening of schools, which will keep their brains alive and help them to prepare for the next academic year.
Former APC’s MP, Honourable Mansaray, said he felt honoured from the first day when Yasin called him on the phone and explained his initiative and the vision he has for the community.
He furthered that he is so amazed by the Organization for using the country’s local content for designing those school bags, which really shows that their community has very talented people, and they are ready to promote them.
Mr. Mansaray Continued that he is happy to witness such an occasion and that from this point on he will pledge his whole-hearted support to the organization, will be available anytime when needed and will also be part of every single Initiative.
Abibatu Elizabeth Kargbo, a class one pupil of Bethel Pre Primary School, expressed joy and happiness in receiving such a package, and that she will definitely make good use of such opportunity. She also gave thanks and appreciation to the organizers for giving them such support.
Memunatu Turay, one of the beneficiary parents, expressed joy in being a beneficiary of this gesture, adding that she was surprised when she received a call from the organization that her kid is part of the 80 beneficiaries.
She gave thanks and praise to CEO Yasin and the organization for their massive support to them and the community and asked for more support for the less privileged parents of school-going pupils.
The occasion ended with the handing over of the items to all 80 pupils and advice to parents to take good care of those items.
