Laura from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I'm almost finished college. I need help with my final year expenses!

With help for accommodation, food, books, etc. I can finish my degree in Public Health and start working to keep others healthy & support my son!


I am a single mother and working hard to complete college. I got pregnant as a teenage girl during the Ebola Epidemic in 2015 and dropped out of school for a year. Fortunately, I was able to resume school and I am currently a final year college student studying Public Health. I am thankfully making good grades in college.

I am eagerly looking forward to completing college and helping to address public health issues in my country. Public health awareness and education are desperately needed in this pandemic.

My goal over the next year is to complete my college degree and graduate. I need help with final year college expenses - accommodation, food, books, tuition, etc. Covering these expenses will be of tremendous help to me - enabling me to finish and graduate. Without this support, I am at risk of dropping out of college.

Meeting this need will help me achieve my goal because this is the final assistance that I need to graduate from college and obtain my degree. With a college degree, I will be able to secure a job and take care of myself and my son.
