Tanji is located on the costal highway The Gambia. It is one of the major fishing centre in the area and The Gambia as a whole.
As a concern citizen I took it upon myself to make a study tour of the village to have find out what are the reasons for some children not enrolled to school. Some of my findings were;
- Some families do not know the value of education.
- Some families due to their low incomes cannot enrolled their children to school.
- Some were influenced by the so-called fishermen to marry their girl child and in the long run doesn’t end up well.
- Some parents having children at home with learning difficulties do not deem it necessary bringing them to school.
5.Some become drop out from school due to teenage pregnancy, early marriage or peer influence.
