Katy from Mambo, Sierra Leone

I need childcare, transportation costs, and supplies so I can finish catering school!

I'm in year two of catering school. I know this will be a path to success for me; I need help covering costs so I can finish and get to work!


I am a hard-working student with big dreams of working as a caterer in the food industry. Right now, I'm in year 2 of catering school and I love it.

My goals are to earn my way out of poverty by working hard and following my dream. I want to provide for myself and my family.

I need financial assistance to help me with covering the costs of child care for my 1-year old child - while I'm at school. I also need help paying for transportation from my home to my catering school. And, I need help buying supplies and utensils for my catering class.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to focus on my education and not miss any classes because I can't afford child care. Meeting this need will help me get back and forth to class. And, with supplies/utensils, I'll be able to maximize my education and have a better chance of success.

Katy has come through some hard times. She is struggling to take care of her child (teenage pregnancy) and advance her catering course. She deserves a helping hand. We would deeply appreciate your kind assistance in helping her advance.
