WHO SAID GAMBIAN KIDS STILL DON’T PLAY OUTSIDE LIKE WE USED TO DO IN THE 80s and 90s
The last thing that kids in Nema Kunku want to miss is the mornings of the weekend. They may not have play stations, XBOX 360s, Game boys, laptops or tablets to live in the virtual world, but they are still happy and contented. They grow up learning a lot of social skills and also engage in activities that keep them fit as they grow older. Since they go to school Monday to Friday, every weekend, in the morning, the children gather in the common area of the community in Nema kunku to socialize and play games of different sorts on the sandy soil. Some are busy running after each other playing a game locally called 'Manyow', meaning “can I come”?
The older boys are busy dividing themselves in two teams to play football. In this picture, the big boys portray their numerous swags as they wait for this reporter to take some camera shots of them. The kids got so excited when they were told that the picture will be posted on the internet on Gambia Talents Promotion’s website.
