Letter to members spring 2019

For you, dear members, the news of the last half year summarized. January to May 2019 We would like to thank all the helpers for their participation in the various stands during the Christmas season! During the Christmas holidays the kitchen and the two school buildings Bruder Konrad Block and Future Block were completely covered. The costs for the renovation, which was urgently needed as the roof beams were already very dilapidated, amounted to 6,000 €. The roof of the Schneider building in Sintet was also repaired. The Skill Center Brufut organized a trip to the Skill Center Sintet. The schoolgirls were very pleased about the two-hour journey by bus. They had even prepared a play for their colleagues in Sintet. Everyone benefited from the visit and the exchange of ideas. A meal together, a visit to the school and music rounded the whole thing off. This was a good advertisement for our training in Sintet, as the school was also open to outsiders. The Gambians are proud of the first bridge over the Gambia River near Farafeni. It was inaugurated in January. At the school there were some trips to historical places, the airport and the beach. There was also a sports festival and Independence Day. During their stay in Gambia in March, Technik ohne Grenzen constructed two flush toilets at the Brufut Skill Centre and two dry toilets at the Sintet training site. The projects were completely organised by Regina, Adelheid and Daniel von TeoG. Everything was financed by the Rotary Club of Amberg, to whom we would like to express our sincere thanks. In Amberg on March 16th the 20th anniversary of the club was celebrated with a big ceremony in the Musikomm. More information can be found on the homepage www. soc-gambia.de The harvest season begins in Sintet. The picture shows our agricultural teacher Lamin Jammeh, who does a very good job. Waltraud is still on site until June and supports the tailoring department and the agricultural school with ideas and advice as well as organisational and accounting matters and sends a lot of information to Germany. The school in Gambia is very happy to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the association with many visitors from Germany during the Whitsun holidays.
