Isatou Ceesay Charity – A Small Gesture To Help the Kids and Community Get Stronger
The IsatouProperties Welfare Funds are 100% funded by us! They were founded way before this company got established in March of 2018. The main objective of the IsatouProperties Welfare Funds is to help kids in need get a second chance of education in The Gambia. In the beginning, we started with just 2 families that have happily grown to 12 now because we find fulfilment in making people smile with the Isatou Properties Welfare Funds.
During my vacation in Gambia, 2019
I was overwhelmed with stories like these. I started to make it official with my team of 3 coordinators whose job is to do all the transactions.
Our welfare funds currently have 12 children to support and there are many children on the waiting list. The children are in different levels of class or school type. Some, for example, are in a vocational institute, one in Middle school and some in High school, and others in elementary school. One had already graduated with a Childcare certificate. Not only do I provide them with school fees, but at least 5 of the children, I pay their parent’s house rent, because they were living in slumps and deplorable shelter. The shelter was not part of the sponsorship plan, but we could not stand their conditions.
The expenditure of one boy in high school for example can cost $120 for a full academic year. This will cover books and at least 2 sets of uniforms. A middle schooler can cost about $80, for the entire year. As for the housing cost of the 5 families, we spent about $410 to cover 6 months’ rent, for a decent 2-bedroom apartment with running water and electricity. The housing support cost is not a priority and they have to be in a bad living condition in other to qualify.”
