Frannie from Bathurst, Sierra Leone

I've grown up in poverty but I'm studying hard in school. I need help with tuition!

With your help I can finish high school and look towards college. I also need a mattress so I can get a good night's sleep and study well.


I am a good student. I live with my family in a dilapidated, corrugated-zinc house without electricity or indoor running water. I sleep on the floor - since there aren’t enough beds for everyone.

I want to finish high school and go to college and become a medical doctor. I have a passion to cure the sick. And, I love tending to people in my community when they fall ill.

I need help with my tuition so I can stay in school. I also need a decent mattress to sleep on.

A mattress will help me ensure I get enough quality rest to be able to concentrate on my classes in school. And, by helping me with my tuition, I’ll be able to stay in school so I can one day become a doctor.
