Our connection with Kotu goes back to 2014. Under the leadership of teacher Keluntang Drammeh, his students were part of The POHGEP Facebook Friends group, a modern day pen-pal program that provided his students and a group of Americans the opportunity to experience a different culture using contemporary technology.

In 1989, when Momodu and Ndeye Isatou Jallow started the Alhaji Mamour Secca Memorial Nursery School in Old Jeshwang, their home’s sitting room doubled as their only classroom.

Today, the school is on a small compound (campus) near their home. In 2013, we spent $400 to replace a corrugated roof on one of the classrooms. In 2014, we partially sponsored five children. Mr. Jallow passed in 2012.
