Tegloma Federation awards scholarship

December 19, 2017 By Ransford Felix

Tegloma Federation International continues to provide humanitarian and educational assistance to vulnerable and destitute pupils in schools spanning their forty years of existence.

Some fifty deprived and needy pupils from schools across the country have been fortunate to benefit from the scholarship scheme set up by the federation five years ago, receiving $100 each for tuition fees and other school learning materials.

Last Friday (December 15), four pupils from the Albert Academy and Sierra Leone Muslim Brotherhood (SLMB) at Mile 91 received Le750,000 each for tuition fees and learning materials.

According to a representative from Tegloma, Bridgett A. Saidu, they decided to award scholarship to deserving pupils who perform well in school.

She said the recipients would continue to receive support from the organisation as long as they perform well in school.

“This year’s scholarships attracted pupils from Kenema, Bo, Mile 91 and Freetown. The scholarship covers one year tuition fees with additional money to their parents to take care of other school expenses,” she said.

She encouraged beneficiaries to continue doing well in school in order to continue to be part of the scholarship scheme.

One of the beneficiaries, Mohamed Marah of the Albert Academy was full of praise for the United States-based federation and promised to continue doing well in school.

While thanking Tegloma Federation for the support, Principals of Albert Academy and SLMB urged the awardees to justify the award as lots of other students are in dire need of similar support.
