The Peter Da Costa Fund
Our dear cousin and uncle Peter was always passionate about causes bettering the educational lives of fellow Africans. This is why the Peter Da Costa Fund was actioned in February 2020, with an initial amount of GMD 20'000.00 which went towards the acquisition of school uniforms for the orphans in the region of Bansang. This amount was delivered to the Heads of the Mothers' Clubs of Bansang, Njoren, Daru and Dobang Kunda schools in charge of ensuring the making of their school uniforms.
The Bansang Swiss Project donated milling machines to the different villages 1) to reduce the burden of the school girls having to mill the flour and 2) to create a sustainable initiative which will generate some income devoted to the Peter Da Costa Fund.
The main focus of this Fund is resolving immediate needs of the least fortunate children and schools in the region of Bansang, namely through the acquisition of uniforms, and the generation of subsidies for school meals as well as urgent maintenance of school infrastructure.
