Pageant news 1 July 2009

Elena Tassi divides her time between the UK and Italy, About 3 months ago she visited The Gambia on holiday, with her young son Zion. While they were there, they visited a primary school, and met the children. Elena was so impressed by the welcome she received, and the way the children entertained Zion, that she decided to say thank-you in a very practical way. She organised a fundraising collection at Zion's second birthday party in Italy, and raised a total of 201.46 (which translates to 171). She found out about Pageant's work in The Gambia, and decided to send us this money, so we could use it to help Gambian children.

Pageant says a big thank-you to Elena and her friends for their generosity. If possible, we would like to help the Gambian school where she and Zion had such a good time. There is only one problem - Elena doesn't know the name of the school. All she knows is that it was in the south of The Gambia, and there was a Dutch flag at the entrance, because some Dutch people were helping the school. Here is a challenge to our readers. Please look at the photos of the school, and let us know if you can identify it.
