Tracy from Freetown, Sierra Leone

I need help with transportation costs so I can continue attending college.

I want someday to work supporting my community; I need help with the cost of transportation so that I can finish my degree.


I am a motivated and bright student. I love working with kids. And, I want to help ease the suffering of those in my community who are impoverished. Both of my parents have passed away.

My goal is to finish college and earn my social work degree. I love working with children and want to help impoverished children thrive. Graduating from college would mean the world to me. I would be the first person in my family to obtain a college degree.

I need financial assistance to cover transportation costs. I need help getting back and forth to school from my home. This is the biggest challenge that I am facing - getting to college each day.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to go to each class and complete my education. Then I can live my dream of helping my community.

I met Tracy and her mum during a visit 10+ years ago. Her mum passed away a few years later. Tracy has worked hard and made tremendous progress - given the financial challenges that she has faced. She is very deserving of our support. It would thrill us if we could help her get to college each day. Thank you!
