Renovation of Library & Teachers room started

BRUFUT, THE GAMBIA – Last Thursday 12-04-2018 the renovation of Library and Teachers room has started. Even we were surprised by the speed things can go. This renovation is sponsored by stichting CHEF. Jaap van Duuren of stichting CHEF was triggered by our Crowdfunding campaign at 1%club and contacted us on April 4th if he could visit our project ‘Rehabilitation of Brufut Lower Basic School’ the next day. Jaap already shared that he was in The Gambia to look for education projects to support. #TogetherBetter

Stichting CHEF: Education for All

Stichting CHEF (CHildcare Education Foundation) is a Dutch foundation set up by Jaap van Duuren and four friends to help build and renovate schools in regions with low access to education. Jaap, a retired educator for 40 years, has formed his ‘second life’ around that objective. In The Gambia they build a new school in Mamuda, south of Brikama. As Jaap said: ‘Every child has the right to enjoy proper education and a fair chance to develop itself’. We couldn’t agree more! Asking him why he decided to do the large donation Jaap said: ‘I like your initiative, taking charge yourselves, great! Also the terrible state of the school convinced me to act.’ Many thanks to Stichting CHEF for their intervention
