Transcript

  • 1. The Gambia, West Africa
  • 2. The Beach in banjul
    The Gambia is a poor country; despite having beautiful beaches, there is a lot of poverty in the surrounding area.
  • 3. AjiSukai Senior Secondary School
    The next few slides are pictures from my school: an all girls agricultural high school
    There are about 150 total students with class sizes averaging 20 to 25
    The school relies on revenue from its chickens, gardens and plant nursery for funding
    There are currently no computers for student use, but I’m working on setting up a computer lab of old donated computers

  • 12. The Gambian Culture
    I enjoy playing with local kids, going to the market, learning Wolof and practicing my drum
    Transportation, internet and electricity are all unreliable here
    The people are very friendly and welcoming
    A loaf of bread costs 6 Dalasi (about 25 cents)
    Goats and stray dogs wander the streets
    It does not rain at all during the dry season
  • 13. The crocodile pond
    Yes, that is a real crocodile!
  • 14. New Friends
    Some local elementary school kids
    love the kite I brought
  • 15. Gambian Wedding
    Weddings are held in the street so everyone is welcome; we shared a communal bowl and ate with our fingers.
  • 16. I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
    More to come soon…
