ChildFund The Gambia has said it received solar-powered lamps to help children effectively study at nights.

The organisation said scores of children lack electricity to study at night in the country.

A statement posted on the group’s Facebook page said: “When children lack their basic education needs, it becomes a problem for them to acquire quality education. 

“Most children in the Gambia lack access to electricity to enable them to study safely at night.

“But then, another breakthrough, as ChildFund has intervened by providing them solar-powered lamps for their night studies at home. 

“The lamps would ensure children and their families’ safety, as some of them would otherwise resort to the use of candles.”

“The lamps were handed over to ChildFund The Gambia Local Partners by ChildFund Country Director Musu Kuta Komma-Bah for onward delivery to the children. Reliable and sustainable!” it added.
