SPOTLIGHT ON THE BASSE ASSOCIATION ...
Since its inception, a little less than two years ago, the Basse Association (BA), funded entirely by volunteer members around the world, has been working on a number of initiatives in Basse. Consider:
Sponsoring needy students from the three primary schools in Basse: Koba Kunda, St George's and St. Joseph's. (Award Ceremony Photos.)
