Beakanyang Holds General Meeting

Friday, February 29, 2008

The Barrow Kunda Beakanyang Kafo, Kombo Chapter, held a general meeting at Churchill’s town, Serekunda, last weekend.

Addressing the meeting, Mr. Tumani Danjo, President of Beakanyang, thanked members for the large turnout.

Mr. Danjo went on to inform the attendees of the various activities that the organization intends to carry out over the course of the year.

He said that as young people, the community of Barrow depends on them for development.
He revealed that the organization intends to embark upon a series of activities in the areas of education, health and agriculture as well as sports.  He added that orphan care would continue to preoccupy the association throughout the rest of the year.

Malick Sidibeh, a member of the chapter, proposed that the volunteers increase their monthly contributions, noting that with the types of programs that they intend to begin, the current amount of dues members pay cannot meet the required resources.  Members welcomed the idea and subsequently considered the proposal.

Dulta S. Touray, Program Officer of the chapter, encouraged members to work as a team for the attainment of its objectives.  He advised Beakanyang members to work hard and continue attending meetings. 

Mr. Touray went on to explain that plans are underway to fence the Barrow Kunda Lower Basic School in cooperation with one UK charity operating in The Gambia next month.  He then appealed for additional support in this cause adding that they need the support of more NGO’s and other philanthropists to enable them to make their goals realities.

Sedi Camara, a citizen of Barrow Kunda, advised members to be law abiding and respectful of the leadership of Beakanyang.  He praised Beakanyang for the successes they registered during the last year and encouraged members to continue their good work.

Ba Burang Touray, Auditor of the chapter, recalled the significant projects Beakanyang achieved and promised that the chapter would continue to complement the efforts of the main office in Barrow Kunda.  The general meeting was attended by members from across the Greater Banjul Area.
