 Ownership – Taking ownership of the organisation and community success.

 GAMCO,s aim is to empower women, youths, children and, underprivileged and disadvantaged children in rural and rural-urban Communities in the Gambia; for their lives would have been meaningless in the society and the country as a whole without support.

 Today GAMCO is supporting more than 100 children in this community with educational materials to achieve their dreams for better future.

 Gambia is a land of hope; a land full of dreams; and a land of freedom. You students are the hope for the future and soul of the Gambia, the hope for Africa and the leaders for tomorrow.

 Mr. Chairperson, Representative from the Governor Office, members from GAMCO Organisation here present, Religious leaders, elders of the village, women’s of Sukuta Mundu Association, ladies and gentlemen and all other protocols respectfully observed. Good afternoon to you all.

 First of all we thank Almighty for making this day a successful one. I am Eli N Mendy representing the students body to give a vote of thanks in this auspicious gathering. We wouldn’t be fair enough if we do not say big thank you to Sukuta Mundu who are working hand in hand with GAMCO Organisation in making our education a successful one.

 What they have done for us cannot be quantified in monetary terms. If there was another adjective to describe what have done for us, we would have done so.

But since there is known them we would continue to pray hard for them so that God would help them to continue their tremendous effort.

Over the pass years since they have started this move, students hardly cried of school fees neither stationary in schools. They rather prefer missing something and invest in education as they know it is the key to gain success in life.

In conclusion, I will like to take this opportunity to advise my fellow students to reflect on the drama, to be serious with our education, the President of GAMCO said if we are serious with our education the sky is the limit for our education.

 I will like to thank everyone who have the patience and understanding to come and grace this great occasion.

Finally women of Sukuta Mundu Association and GAMCO Organisation for living all their work and families for yet another annual distribution of school materials, is not easy but God will guide you.

 I thank you all for your kind attention.
