The Keats Collection to Benefit The Gambia Academy
Selling a Collection for A Good Cause
Every now and then, a collector make the choice to sell their collection for a good cause. Such is the case with the Keats Collection to benefit the Gambia Academy, an educational non-profit institution that is dedicated first and foremost on re-orientating curriculum, and to critically assess what best serves young Africans in order to equip them with the knowledge, passion and tools they need to succeed as proactive change-makers, entrepreneurs, role models, as well as a highly skilled workforce.
Drawing on her own background as an internationally renown musician and educator, West African Sona Jobarteh launched The Gambia Academy in 2015. Here, aspiring young Gambians not only hone their music and thinking skills; they are acquiring the requisite skills to effect positive change at home and abroad. The Academy is now in expansion model as a brilliant new campus is starting to take shape on the southern edge of The Gambia, This will enable the academy to expand its enrollment to 150 students and also provide the model for other education and vocational efforts across Africa.
Proceeds from the sale of these maps will go to benefit the Gambia Academy. To learn more or get involved, visit www.theGambiaAcademy.org
