On behalf of us all at The Blue Water Partnership I would like to express our satisfaction at the great news that the school at Kumbija is to be taken over and developed by the Gambian government.  


We have been concerned for some time about the long term prospects for the school but the solution now developing seems excellent.  It means all the hard work that you The Gambian Schools Trust have done to negotiate, build and support the school have left a lasting legacy.  Together we have succeeded in providing high quality schooling for a large number of children in the years since the school was built, who would otherwise not have had the opportunity.  Those youngsters will carry this gift with them for the rest of their lives and to the benefit of their wider communities. And now we can be sure that the village and surrounding areas will continue to benefit into the long term future.


Congratulations to you all, it has been a pleasure to be associated with you for this very rewarding project.
