Isata Kamara lived in a poor village and her parents spent their days farming in order to earn a living. They wanted Isata to receive an education, so they sent her to the local school, but she was often sent home because they could not afford the school fees that were required.
When Isata and her family heard about EduNations, their lives were changed. Isata joined the EduNations Senior Secondary School and was able to attend high school for free, live on campus, and receive three nutritious meals every day.
In April, Isata was delighted to find out that she had received a sponsor from the US who would cover the cost of her education and feeding at the boarding school. Her sponsor had just recently returned from a trip to Sierra Leone, where she had the opportunity to see the senior secondary school and meet Isata personally.
Being sponsored has impacted Isata’s life tremendously. She felt as if a weight was lifted off her shoulders and it motivated her to give her all in her academic studies. “I’m very blessed to have my sponsor,” says Isata. “She is a woman with courage, empathy, and compassion, and she has impacted me a lot. She has helped me to know the real meaning of life and she is my mentor. I admire her so much.”
Isata is slated to graduate in June 2024 and hopes to attend a university and become a civil engineer.
