Betty from Freetown, Sierra Leone

With no student loans here, I need help to pay to finish college.

I'm a single mother who had to drop out of school because I couldn't afford to pay. With help I can earn a community development degree!


I am a single mother and college dropout. Due to a lack of tuition funds for my 2nd year, my studies have unfortunately come to a standstill. There are no student loans available. And, because my family is unable to pay for my educational fees, I have had no choice but to drop out of college.

My goals are to resume education dreams of earning a community development degree. With a community development degree, I will be able to help uplift other impoverished youth just as I have been supported when in need.

I need help with tuition funds for college. With this amount settled, I can then resume classes and continue my dream of achieving an education.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to resume and complete my education.
