The Projects - Jappineh Nursery School
Jappineh Nursey School is situated in Jappineh, Jarra Central - one of the poorest districts in Gambia.
Three classrooms have been completely renovated, furnished and equipped, and two more teachers have been recruited. Pupil numbers are now in excess of 100, and the community is delighted to, at last, have access to proper nursery education.
The African Oyster Trust continues to support Jappineh Nursery School, including contributions towards teaching and food costs.
As well as being in a very poor region of Gambia, Jappineh is also remote and relatively inaccessible. This causes considerable problems with healthcare, so a new clinic has also been a major Trust project. This is an essential facility, providing 24 hour per day outpatient treatment, a pharmacy, obstetric care and in-patient wards, as well as a mobile clinic/ambulance.
