Maggie from Freetown, Sierra Leone

Help me and my family pay for a new place to live!

I need financial help to rent a new place since our current landlord wants us to move out so he can take back his land.


I live with my father and siblings in a zinc shack. The owner of the land we live on has asked that we move out, but we're impoverished and don't have money to buy food, or transportation, let alone rent. Since my mother left 9 years ago, my family struggles to provide for ourselves.

One day, I want to finish school and become an accountant so I can help pull my family out of poverty. Today, I want to be able to buy food for my family, afford transportation to and from school, and find a stable home for my family to live in.

I need financial help to rent a new place since our current landlord wants to take back our home and his land. I also need financial help to provide food for my family and transportation to and from school.

This help will allow us to obtain security so I can continue to pursue my education. Having a stable home and consistent nutrition is essential. The financial help will also ensure I have a way to get back and forth to school each day.

Theresa, a Develop Africa staff member in Sierra Leone, came in contact with Maggie in 2020. She witnessed first-hand the challenges that Maggie was facing in her family, school, and affording necessities. Theresa determined that Maggie was deserving of support and enrolled her in Develop Africa scholarship program in 2021. It would be wonderful if we could help Maggie advance.
