Elizabeth from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I need help to pay for the textbook & fees for my college entrance exam.

I want to take the West Africa Secondary School Cert Exam so I can apply for college. W/ funds I can buy a textbook, laptop, and pay the entrance fee!


I’m a bright young student from a big family who lives in poverty. My mom sells food but doesn’t make enough money to help me pay for my school fees.

I want to take the West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination so I will be eligible to apply for college. Once in college, I want to become a nurse so I can tend to the people in my community when they fall ill.

I need help with the cost of the textbook and fees for my WASSCE exam. I also need help paying application fees for college. And, I need a personal laptop.

I have to pass the WASSCE exam before I will be eligible for college. I also have to pay the college application fees. And, I need the laptop to help me study for my exam and complete my assignments when I start college.
