Isatu Potho Kamara,who is aspiring for the ruling All People’s Congress (APC) parliamentary symbol to represent Constituency 67, Koya Chiefdom in the Port Loko District, on Wednesday, 20th September, 2017, donated books and other learning materials worth millions of Leones to over five schools in the chiefdom.

Speaking at the well organized and well attended donation ceremony at the    Tomlinson High School in Songo Town,  Madam Isatu Potho Kamara said she has been a nurse for over thirty years in the United States and that over the years, she has done a lot in promoting education and women’s empowerment in that part of the country.

She told the audience that she is a daughter of the soil and that she is well aware of the challenges pupils faced in that part of the country, because she too went through the same difficulties during her schooling.

She disclosed that her focus is on children and women’s empowerment; hence she would make it a tradition to be awarding scholarship to those who are doing well in the chiefdom.

She noted that girl child education and women’s empowerment are highly needed in the chiefdom, adding that if given the opportunity to be their next Member of Parliament, she will ensure that those areas are addressed.

“Teachers are the source of all development in every nation, but I have observed that our teachers are left out. I promise to work with all the teachers in this part of the country and make sure they are motivated to the extent that they will always be happy to teach our children,” she said.

Isatu Potho Kamara also awarded trophies, certificates and envelopes to best pupils of the year and best teachers respectively.

He added that children are the hope and next generation that will take the chiefdom to the next level, but that they were needed to be prepared educationally for them to take the mantle of leadership.

Also speaking, Professor Michael Dillo Sesay called on the children to stay focused in school because education is power.

He noted that he achieved his professorship not because he was refusing to study or refusing to do his assignment, but that he worked and studied very hard to attain that status.
