Here is the report of Alimamy our representative in Sierra Leone
This has recently been carried out. The exercise took place on Sunday the 11th September 2019 at the Mabesseneh Parish Hall in Lunsar. It was very successful. 86 of the 91 beneficiaries came with their parents. 4 of the 5 absentees had their parents representing them. In total, 90 out of the 91 received their scholarship packages. The package comprises of a school bag, 4 text books (Core Subjects), 6 ledger books, mathematical set and an envelope containing one hundred and fifty thousand Leones (€15). The two Schools Supervisors were among those present. All Head Teachers from the various schools were in attendance. Statements were made by Alimamy Samura, Mr. Augustine Sesay secondary school principal and the Schools Supervisors all centered in the importance of education and asking the students to make good use of this golden opportunity given to them by Schools and Health Foundation. The Schools Supervisor thanked Schools and Health Foundation on behalf of the Ministry for this loudable venture in considering these pupils for such a wonderful assistance. They further emphasized the need for all beneficiaries to handle well more especially the text books as they are not only meant for Junior Secondary 1 but Junior Secondary 1 – 3. Mr. Augustine Sesay announced to them that, the one hundred and fifty thousand Leones sum in the envelope was for the purchase of the school uniform and shoes since the pupils are in different secondary schools , wear different shoe sizes and considering the fact that, some parents had already gone ahead to buy the uniform and shoes. At the end of the distribution exercise, the Head Teacher for Katick Mr. Bangura gave the vote of thanks and beneficiaries together with their parents and head teachers departed with joy. They were very much happy and appreciative receiving the scholarship packages.
