Polly Mueller - Early Childhood Education School Building

Polly Mueller and Sulayman Marenah – Early Childhood Education School Building

Date grant awarded: 10/30/2017

My name is Polly Mueller, and I have been an elementary school teacher in Wisconsin for 15 years. I am honored to be fulfilling my lifelong dream by serving in The United States Peace Corps here in The Gambia, West Africa. I am working with Sulayman Mareneh, my principal, to construct an Early Childhood Building that will contain 3 classrooms for over 148 children enrolled next year. Currently, the children are in one crowded classroom with one teacher, broken desks and no learning materials. Thank you for your interest in this wonderful project for the children of Wellengara Ba!
