During their stay, the Swedish students took part in lessons, sports, home visits and cultural exhibitions with their counterparts. The group also donated sporting and educational materials to the schooL.
Speaking to this paper after the presentation, the senior coordinator of the visit, Karim Hagberth, said that she was happy to be in The Gambia, a country she has visited many times. She added “Kunkujang and Gambians as a whole are very friendly, and the country is a wonderful and peaceful place”.
