Dr. Abubakary Jawara Foundation-Africa Charity- has also subscribed to the belief that sports could be used as a vehicle for the promotion of the wellbeing of the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
The promotion of the wellbeing and welfare of the deaf and hard-of-hearing is not taken by many Gambians as their business.
This category of people continue to be egregiously marginalized in schools, job markets, public spaces and even by legislations.
But the Chairman of GACH Group, Dr. Abubakary Jawara, is now thinking of how his foundation could help this marginalized group in improving their wellness and wellbeing via sports as well as through other initiatives customized for their advancement.
On Friday, the Executive Director of GOVI was at the Fatou Golden Plaza where Dr. Jawara gave him a cheque for D25,000.
The money was a token contribution to the successful conduct of the upcoming activities of the Banjul City Council Youth Sports Club.
Before presenting the cheque, Dr. Jawara reemphasized his commitment to the promotion of the welfare of the deaf and hard-of-hearing in the country.
He told the GOVI boss to always reach out to him for issues, regarding the wellbeing and welfare of the category of people under his watch.
Meanwhile, GOVI’s Head was visibly appreciative of the cash support from Dr. Abubakary Jawara Foundation-Africa Charity.
He pointed out that the deaf and hard-of-hearing are still marginalized and bullied by people, who are supposed to support and protect them.
He said marginalization and bullying occur even at the home level.
GOVI boss meanwhile thanked Dr. Jawara and his foundation for making the deaf and hard-of-hearing feel part of the wider society.
