In a bid to addressing the problem of fees for beneficiaries who were enrolled in various community schools by Dream Maker Foundation, the Deputy General Manager of the Sierra Leone Airport Authority has provided funds for the payment of first term fees for over 40 children.
“As someone who knows the worth of education and where it has placed me, I decided to support a move I described as worthwhile,” Emil Rogers said.
He stated that he came in contact with the Foundation through a video clip that was in circulation on the social media in which the founder, Moses Kamara, was explaining the plights of vulnerable children, especially those within the school age brackets.
Founder of the foundation, Moses Kamara thanked Rogers for his support, describing it as timely because it was coming at a time when most of the kids enrolled in community schools had been asked out by the respective authorities for failure to pay their first term fees.
“Truly speaking, our support did not cover fees simply because we were of the view that community schools just like government supported schools, should benefit from the two years government’s Ebola fee subsidy,” he said.
Mr. Kamara revealed that they were currently working on fundraising activities that would ensure that all those enrolled by his foundation were kept in school.
He added that beside Blessed Assurance Church in the United States of America, they were not receiving any other support from international organizations.
He called on humanitarians globally to support the education of the children through his foundation.
