    Story

    Hello

    Thank you for checking out my page. My name is Alusine Kamara, and I am tourist guide in Sierra Leone. I work for VSL Travel and if you are on this page it is likely you have been a guest of mine in the past.

    With no tourism during the pandemic I have focused my efforts on building a school in my home village of Kangbor, in the Kambia District of Northern Sierra Leone. Currently, there is no school in the village meaning kids have to walk 6-7 miles each day to go to school, but more often than not, this isn't an option, so they simply don't get an education. I want to change this.

    The school is nearly finished, as you can see from the photo, we are now just painting. It has 4 classrooms, a staffroom and a headteachers office. However, we still need to kit it out with benches and desks and blackboards and I'd also like to dig a well so they can have access to water.

    The funding however has run out. A good friend of mine, a customer and philanthropist who had wanted to help my community, was making it all possible for us, however, he has very sadly passed away from COVID which is why I'd like to ask you, my friends, to help me finish this project so that we can provide and education and water to the local kids of Kangbor.

    Please, anything you can do to support this project would be much appreciated, whether it is a small or large donation, or just a share with those who might be able to help, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you in advance.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive THANK YOU!! Thanks to the efforts from this crowdfunding page as well as the raffle we have so far raised £1,900 which goes a very long way towards our goal. We will definitely have enough to fit out the classrooms with desks and chairs and blackboards which means the kids of Kangbor will certainly be able to get an education! And it is all thanks to you. So once again THANK YOU! And all the best for 2021!
