Helping people in need can be so direct and so beautiful. Please meet Modou, a student at Tanji Lower Basic School. He is a very good student, says his teacher Lamin Koopmans. Modou got one of the two wheelchairs that we recently gave to his teacher for his disabled students. Now Modou can come to school from home on his own. The distance from home to school is like five kilometres. This story really moved us to tears.

Kids Poem By: Sedat Jobe✍️


Beach parties, don't be late!
Go Go club, never contemplate!
Desist to incriminate
Refrain from discriminate
Do not yarn to proacastinate.

School boy!!
Be proud of your joy
But don't be a jack-toy
Divulge with friends and stop being coy
Be sure in your arithmetic of cuboid.

School girl!! Never bleach your face
Mr Jobe is vigilant to trace
Even if you hide in the darkness place
School rules are meant to embrace
School girl!! Stick to the pen and avoid the p***s
Good knowledge remains but, ignorance perishes


Tanji Lower Basic School was established in 1981. It is a co-educational institution without any discrimination based on clan, colour, creed, gender or race and is run under strict rules of discipline and academic performance.

For well over a quarter-century now, the school became household name in academics and it's products are currently serving in various institutions in The Gambia and beyond.

So many educationists passed through the ranks of the school, and currently the headmaster of the school is Mr. Baboucarr Bojang.

In Tanji Ex-Students Association since existence has been playing a key role in helping their alma mater in anyway possible, so kudos to all on the frontline stirring the wheel.

Sincere thanks and gratitude goes all out to one standout organisation based in Austria that goes by the name Help2Unify- they’ve been really instrumental in supporting the school on different projects ranging from the garden, poultry establishment, vendors canteen, water pumping machine, taps within the school and providing proper sanitation for students and teachers alike.

We hope and pray that the same trend of development that has tremendously taken place over the past couple of years continue to take it pace and cause.

We are resuming sessions for the new academic semester (2023-24) on the 18th September,2023. On that note, we are urging on all parents and stakeholders to come and enrol their children before sessions proper begins, and that message clearly is for the new intakes.

For The Gambia our homeland ♥️🇬🇲🤲🏻



Meet Mrs. Fatou Drammeh of Tanji Lower Basic School a true beacon of inspiration for the entire community of Tanji. Her unwavering dedication and altruistic spirit shines brightly as she selflessly utilized her hard-earned teaching salary to breathe life into the children’s life in school, thus creating a haven of knowledge and nurturing for children. With the support of devoted teachers by her side, she selflessly has forged a path of educational enlightenment, offering this gift of education free to all children on their shoulders and young minds eager to explore and learn vigorously from her garden of knowledge and wisdom. Fatou’s endeavor stands as a testament to the transformative power of compassion and determination, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of children in the aforementioned institution and others she taught. Truly, she embodies the essence of a visionary and compassionate leader, and her laudable efforts deserved to be cherished.

In 2019, when I came to Tanji Lower Basic School as a classroom teacher I noticed those unchanged qualities in her. She brought together in the first phase about fifty (50) students together and guided them through so many life-changing activities that they will never ever forget. She guided them on poetry, drama, spellings, writing skills and most importantly the effective speaking and writing of English in and outside the four corners of her classroom. She succeeded in nurturing those attitudes in the heart and minds of students.

What really blows my mind away about her is that, anytime an activity or event is coming up in school she will selflessly scout a new badge of students from different grade levels and guide them within a short time frame and their performance becomes mind blowing in the presence of audience. A true beacon of hope and compassion for the entire community of Tanji.

Fatou is a mother of two (Adama & Ousman) she's an aunty , an Idol and role model to many in her family, community and beyond. Her cooking abilities is next to none, as even before the food is served the aroma that penetrates through the windows blows the minds of the patient gentleman or woman waiting to be served. Her hands are purely magic.

I feel extra privileged to have worked alongside her since my inclusion to the staff profile of Tanji Lower Basic School from start up to date. Truly, she embodies the essence of a visionary and compassionate leader, and her laudable efforts deserved to be valued and celebrated.

Life is believed to evolved from water which forms an essential part of procreation.

Through HELP2UNIFY and their country representative Lamin Colley(Koopmans) Tanjilbs was able to realise a successful completion for drinkable water project of 7 taps 20/07/2023. With an increasing number of children ready to attend school from diverse backgrounds of the coastal fishing village Tanji.

H2O. Water is a substance formed by two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, so its chemical formula is H2O. The chemical bonds between the oxygen atom and the hydrogen atoms form a 104.5º angle. In addition, water molecules can form hydrogen bonds with neighbouring molecules.

Besides, the Scientific facts. Water is essential for our survival and naturally, children need adequate hydration for their good health and proper growth. Adequate water intake in children will keep them hydrated, improves blood circulation and digestion, and also aids in gaining proper weight.

We all know why do we need water. We all understand the importance and dependency of water in our lives. Everything on Earth relies on water like humans, animals, trees, etc.

Water is a transparent, tasteless, odourless, and almost colourless chemical substance, it makes up for 71 percent of the Earth,.and roughly up to 60 percent of the human body.

Therefore, we need to teach our kids the value of water and make them appreciate the bounty of nature all around by telling them about how water is important to us

Water is of major importance to humans. We can see various reports which say water is important for humans. The majority of our body organs also need water to function properly.

Water is not just for quenching our thirst. It also regulates body temperature and keeps the tissues in our body moist and hydrated. You can explain to them with an example. Illustrate to them how it feels when we don’t drink water for a long period of time, our eyes or mouth get dry, and then we may feel dizzy.

Therefore, drinking water helps retain the optimum amount of moisture in our skin and increases blood circulation in the body.

"Every child has the right to clean water and basic sanitation facilities"

Going forward, UNICEF will focus on sustaining the gains registered through several measures and strategies, including:

"For every child, proper sanitation"

"Improving access to basic sanitation in schools and riverine communities"

HELP2UNIFY has complement The Government of The Gambia in achieving NDP goals and SDG 6, in ensuring universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water, adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) on water and sanitation, adopted by United Nations Member States at the 2015 UN Summit as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, provides the blueprint for ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Moreover, Lamin Colley CEO of Jamorai Gambia Foundation is ensuring access to water in vulnerable communities with his water well projects while paying a special attention to the needs of women and girls and of course those in vulnerable situations.

With his effort he has facilitated many life changing philanthropic gestures to support needy children in schools, vulnerable family support programs, health and socioeconomic factors like gardening and an ongoing er****on of a poultry house in Tanji.

Henceforth, providing access to more drinking water in Tanji LBS would save time, avoid long queues, ensures health and most importantly improves children's classroom attentions.

We the staff of Tanji LBS thanked him and all his donors for a life changing experience.

Sedat Jobe,

I have today successfully completed and handed over sanitary taps (6) to the aforementioned institution and it was fully funded by Help2Unify organization based in Austria. It was such a delightful day for everyone in the school ranging from the students, teachers and even the vendors- because water in every environment benefits every single person regardless of your destination, race or gender.

A few years ago, few members of Help2Unify organization visited The Gambia some of whom for the first time and others second time in the smiling coast of Africa- upon their arrival we have undertaken so many activities and projects but one school they have been so impressed with was sincerely Tanji Lower Basic School due to it’s warm nature and welcoming spirit most especially from the students of the school. They (group) felt they could do something to change the outlook of the school and now it has started with taps (6) in the middle of the school. These taps would ease the access of clean drinking water thus making sanitation a household name in our school henceforth. The burden of water now will be the thing of the past as from today.

Water is essential for our survival and naturally, children need adequate hydration for their good health and proper growth. Adequate water intake in children will keep them hydrated, improves blood circulation and digestion, and also aids in gaining proper weight.

I want to sincerely use this opportunity to thank the school administration most especially for allowing me undertake this project in the school premises without any burden. Special thanks to all teachers who helped in one way or the other in making it a success. Not also forgetting my workers (tile-men & plumbers) for the accurate work.

Special appraisals and thanks goes out to Help2Unify organization for the support and we hope for more of this kind in our school.

Together we are a powerful force to reckon with Help2Unify

To whom much is given much is expected.
Thanks to the almighty Allah for the blessings and favour bestowed on us. our parents for the prayers, the pupils and their parents. The school administration for their cooperation. Teachers who are unable to make it due to one reason or the other, our auxiliary staff players and their selfless dedication, the cooks for their warmth and prayers.
Special thanks goes to the following teachers for their cooperation, dedication, compassion, commitment, self sacrifices, energy and time to be with this kids for the past 3 days, despite this trying moment of our time. They sacrifice their freedom for the freedom of our future leaders. They are worthy emulating.

Students and teachers of the English Club of Tanji Lower Basic School today got all certified thanks to a three days long intensive program they attended under the leadership of Hon. Lamin B. Fatty AKA Professor Gugutiango McCarthy, and so today we all rejoice!

Basically, the English club is purposefully established with the aim of helping develop children’s reading, writing and public speaking skills, as most of these children would someday somehow yearn to be either aspirant authors or journalist in the near future. Of course under the pragmatic leadership of Lamin B. Fatty efficiency, competency and deliverance is no exception. He ( Lamin) is now a household name when it comes to authors in The Gambia and currently he holds a key position within The Gambia’s Writers Association and far within the subregion in areas relating to the aforementioned skills centered.

In a nutshell, the children of Tanji Lower Basic School and her surroundings are blessed to have Lamin B. Fatty within their midst ready to mingle and serve at the ultimate apex. Hats off to participants.

On the most serious note, I want to use this singular opportunity to thank all those contributed meaningfully in making sure this program was a massive success!

In Tanji Lower Basic School, we are always ready and willing to inculcate a good culture of reading & writing into the children to excel.

Earlier today, we did some onion transplanting the school garden project with some enthusiastic and passionate students. It has been a very busy week for us in school with the end of term examination coupled with the extra curricular activities too. Despite all that we feel we can fast track the transplanting of the onions 🧅 and in few months time we can enjoy seeing them flourish.

The most amazing thing about our school garden is that, we allow children to fully demonstrate transplanting and watering of their veggies with the guidance of the garden master, Ebrima Sanneh and they do the rest at their own comfort. Students mostly come to the garden for watering and weeding during school break hours and in a routine format, and they love to see the veggies growing rapidly.

I want to sincerely thank all the students who speared their leisure hours just to come and help in the garden that fully belongs to them.

In Tanji Lower Basic School, we are fully committed to innovating new methods and techniques in different cater of the school to live and promising institution that we all will love at it’s apex.

End of first term examination kicks start Monday at Tanji Lower Basic School, were students will be assessed in all subjects taught in a period of 3 months, that’s from September to December. Please wish them good luck! 🍀🤞🏽



“The basis of education shouldn’t always be based on strictly reading, writing and doing sums but rather teaching logic. When you teach the children logic, it helps them to become logical thinkers and even when they grow up the culture of logic remains with them.” Lamin Koopmans

Today in grade three (3) red, the topic of discussion is MONEY and SHOPPING and in this very interesting topic it creates an avenue for the children to learn how to take care of a shop and equally come to a shop and do shopping when the need arise. Virtually, this is an idea that grooms children in two folds; one to become a good shopkeeper and second to be good in doing shopping on their own. As the facilitator ( teacher) of the whole process in class, I was deeply touched and felt extremely humbled that very small children can demonstrate freely on their own without someone’s guidance. In a nutshell, it’s a clear testament that they can even be able to go for shopping even while at home alone. I have said this before and will again say it again that, we should not be teaching our children what to think but rather how to think. If you teach children how to think you’re in turn providing them all the necessary details, but if you allow them to think on their own freely you’ve in turn created a suitable environment where they can explore their potentials.

The LOGIC in this topic is that, children are taught how to use their monies wisely while doing shopping and also discourage the lavish culture of shopping!

Sending all my keen followers and well-wishers a hearty thanks and gratitude from the other side of the Atlantic The Gambia, Tanji.

The name of the school is Tanji Lower Basic School and we have an official page on which you can follow and know all the latest happenings inside the classroom and of course outside. So feel free to give it a like and enjoy our comportment at the highest level.

Poetry can be a powerful teaching tool, helping students improve their literacy. It can also allow writers to express their emotions and allow readers to connect to those emotions. Poetry is also connected to aesthetics, or the exploration of what is beautiful in the world.

Poetry, like any other form of artistic creation, is one of the pillars of the humanities. By following the paths of emotion, sensitivity and the imagination, the poem transmits knowledge and human values. Better still, it shapes the human being, body and soul.

“Creating a suitable platform that brings out the best out of kids should be a matter of not when and how but rather must.” Thus, a highly motivated and passionate kids group that goes by the name "TANJI LOWER BASIC SCHOOL ON A MISSION " has taken up the right track to lead and this is certainly the other half of the end product". Lamin Koopmans

It makes me feel so much jocund and excited to see young spirited students reading high touching poems that can touch even the heart of a stranger passing by- it’s a great sign that education is taking it’s cause in the aforementioned institution thanks to the committed teachers and patents who allowed us to mould their children in such an exciting way.

If you want to see more exciting performance from the children of Tanji Lower Basic School, please kindly visit the school premises tomorrow afternoon to get yourself entertained with all kind of musics, dramas, comedy, miming and freestyle dance by both students and teachers respectively. A historic day awaits tomorrow!
