Serrekundading Madrasah Construction Project

Serrekundading is a village located East of Brikama. Caravan of Mercy has been supporting the Serrekundading public through its Madrasah since it was established in 2008. Sadly this Madrasah has since collapsed.

The Madrasah once housed 200 students from Serrekundading and surrounding villages and was the only one of its kind in the area.

During the annual rain season in 2013, the region experienced such torrential rain falls that utterly destroyed the Madrasah.

The Madrasah was made up of two classrooms, one office and a store-room, all financed and constructed by the locals with mud bricks. The roofing and doors were provided by Caravan of Mercy

The ages of the children taught there ranged from 7 to 15 years. They were tutored by 4 teachers who taught them Quran and Islamic subjects as well as English language, mathematics, science and social and environmental studies.

The locals are now desperate to have a new stronger building erected to fulfil their basic religious needs. A building that can withstand both the heat and heavy down-pours of rain.

Caravan of Mercy are therefore seeking donations in order to help the Gambians in Serrekundading.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity” [Tirmidhi]

The proposed Madrasah building is estimated to cost  £20,000
