Melody from Taiama, Sierra Leone

With help I can pay my school fees & buy a laptop and finish college!

Without financial assistance, I'm unable to attend school. With your help I can pay my tuition, earn my degree, & find a job to support my family.


I’m a 3rd-year university student currently studying political science. My mother is a single parent and she has nobody to help her pay my fees. My father is deceased.

My goals are to earn my degree and help take care of my younger siblings.

I am having a hard time paying my college fees. There are no college scholarships or tuition assistance. I’ve been hawking / retailing tinned goods and fruits on the street so that I can sustain myself.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to pay my outstanding college fees and continue my education. Funds will also pay for a much-needed laptop.

Melody's determination has amazed us. She comes to us highly recommended as someone who needs help and a "hand-up" so she can finish her college degree. It would be phenomenal if we could help her finish strong. Thank You!
