PAGEANT - "Education is the future"
New Blog Team Members 2008
In 2008, Pageant expanded the Team contributing to theto include people who could give us up to the minute news about what was happening in The Gambia. We welcome the five new team members below, and look forward to their regular postings on the blog.
Lamin Jammeh did a computer maintenance course at GTMI, (Gambia Telecommunications & Multimedia Institute) in Banjul.
Sainey and Alhassan Darboe are twin brothers, both studied at Nusrat Senior Secondary School in Serrekunda with the intention of becoming journalists.
Lamin Kebbeh finished school then moved on to nursing, training at an up-country hospital at Mansa Konko, near Soma. We hope he can bring us news of events in up-country Gambia, far from the Banjul-Serrekunda metropolis.
Bakary Gitteh is headmaster of Bakalarr Basic Cycle School, on the north bank of the Gambia River. Bakalarr is the first school that Pageant started to support, and Bakary has been the driving force behind the fantastic improvements at this school. As well as covering events at his school, we hope that he will report on the women's group and market at Sika and the Artemisia plantation trials.
