Stephen from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I'm studying to become a certified construction worker. I need help with tuition

I had to drop out of high school because my parents couldn't cover my expenses. Now I'm looking to get certified and get a construction internship.


I love playing soccer. I dropped out of high school because my parents were not able to cover my school-related expenses.

My ambition is to become a skilled construction worker. I am currently pursuing a certificate program in Building and Construction.

I need help with covering tuition and transportation costs for the Spring 2021 semester. This will help me get to my classes and building and construction internship.

Meeting this need will help me because my attendance at course lectures and the internship is crucial. Otherwise, I will not be able to graduate.
