Charity Update: Stella
22 April 2015
The support and fundraising acquired via Select Resorts has allowed many achievements for the charity, funding the Sambel Kunda School in the Gambia.
Because of the support from many businesses and individuals, the Stella's School Scheme has been able to branch out to support other schools that desperately need help in The Gambia.
Two more schools have been added to the Stella's School Charity Scheme - NJie Kunda School & Sotokoi School which are located in a poor area of the Niamini East Region.
The school has been established since 1997 and currently has a student population of 111 with just four teachers. The school is significantly lacking in teaching and learning materials such as notebooks, pens, pencils, uniforms and shoes. The school also does not currently provide appropriate furniture for the children.
The water the children drink is from an open well, which has been proven to be unsafe - but is is the only available source.
The school is fenced with sticks that are regularly broken by animals, which makes it unsafe for the children attending the school.
As our nominated charity, Select Resorts are working hard to raise funds for the valuable Stella's School Scheme. If you're interested in sponsoring our staff to do a sky dive for this cause, please visit their fundraising page: https://www.justgiving.com/Select-ResortsSkyDive/.
