Renovation Brufut Library & Staff Room celebrated

BRUFUT, THE GAMBIA – 22 APRIL 2018. Today we celebrated the finished renovation of the Library and Staff room at Brufut Lower Basic School. Our Chairman Ebrima Jatta hailed the sponsor that made this possible with “A Big “Thank You” for Jaap van Duuren! Which was also the title song of the school children.

Jaap van Duuren was given two shirts, one traditional handmade shirt and one CASA Gambia T-shirt commemorating the event with “Thank you Stichting CHEF & Jaap van Duuren for supporting Casa-Gambia in April 2018 for the Rehabilitation of Brufut Lower Basic School”

CASA Gambia chairman said: “We want to take time to express our thanks to the Contractor, Stichting CHEF and Jaap van Duuren who made the Library and Staff Room access conductive for students, teachers and residents of Brufut Village.”

We hope this big contribution will spin our campaign to fully renovate the school into the next gear.


Thank you Stichting CHEF and Jaap van Duuren for all that you do!
