Everyone has the right to education. The government and civil society organizations in Sierra Leone recognise this, but a huge number of children are still out of school.
The Seekers Organisation, on Thursday, awarded scholarships to 35 pupils at the Prince of Wales School in Kingtom.
The donation is worth over Le10 million and was awarded to 35 hardworking and excellent pupils, whom the school identified as less privileged.
Mohamed Bangura, a JSS2 pupil is a beneficiary from the donation and described the supportive initiative as one that truly seeks the interest of the needy for a better and developed Sierra Leone. “It’s a privilege and blessing to be considered as one of the awardees for this kind generosity. With this support I’m determine to do more in my studies.” Bangura says.
