I am raising funds to help keep Nfamara & his sister Mariama in school in Brikama, The Gambia, Africa.
People all over the world are struggling more than ever because of the pandemic.
Nfamara & Mariama Conteh need help to stay in school, food, clothing, basic medical supplies and footwear. I will ensure their current school fees are paid at Jamisa Upper Basic School in Brikama - which has no running water or electricity. I am also researching ways in which we as a community can help his community in the bigger picture & look at this as an ongoing expanding challenge & commitment.
I have spoken & facetimed with Nfamara a number of times. He is a passionate, driven young man filled with hope, intelligence & an unbreakable spirit. He is very keen to finish his education. Most importantly, he hopes to break the cycle of poverty his family is experiencing. I have also seen the extremely challenging (to say the least) conditions his family are living in. Nfamara has personally struggled to help take care of his mother, sister & himself after his father passed away this time last year.
This is an extremely difficult time for us all financially. I know it is a lot to ask for money during a pandemic, but even if you can spare $5 or $10 dollars or even more, It will help offer Nfamara & Mariama an opportunity to finish school & ease some of the challenges they face on a daily basis. Thank you in advance for your kindness & generosity - Nick & the Contehs.
