John from Freetown, Sierra Leone

Through education I can find success; I need tutoring for my final HS exams.

I have good grades & hope to become a doctor; college admission hinges on final exams. My family is struggling; w/ help I can hire tutors & pay fees.


I am in the final year of high school. I am the oldest sibling and have one brother and one sister. My parents are struggling to meet our basic needs.

My goal is to attend medical school and become a doctor. I am making good grades. There is a need for medical doctors in Sierra Leone as the ratio of medical doctors to the population is very low. I look forward to contributing to health care.

I need help with covering the cost of additional coaching lessons to help me prepare for the end-of-high school exams. Success in this exam is critical for acceptance into college. These funds will also cover exam fees, the cost of transportation to school/lessons and supplementary study materials, etc.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to successfully prepare for and take my exams. Clearing this hurdle successfully will help launch me into medical school.
