The Alpha Camara Nursery School serves the community of Kuntaur Fula Kunda, a village near Georgetown.  The school is built on land owned by the Camara family, a local poor farming family, who have donated it to the village.  The school is run by volunteer teachers, the pupils are able to attend free of charge.

 

The charity has provided books, furniture and educational materials.  A volunteer from the UK has spent time living with the Camara family and has helped refurbish the classrooms and built a perimeter wall and toilets.
