Mohamed Sannoh, one of EducAid's earliest students (he joined us at the age of 10 when we sponsored him at primary school before we had our own schools) is celebrating again.
We were very proud of Mohamed's achievements when he became our first EducAidian graduate to finish his degree, completing a four year Accounting course at Fourah Bay College. He was supported through his studies by friends of EducAid.
He has subsequently served his alma mater, working as accountant and logistician. It is wonderful to have one of our own, trustworthy and committed, taking on this vital role.
Thanks to further friends of EducAid, Mohamed will continue his accounting studies undertaking a distance CIMA course, an internationally recognised professional accounting qualification.
Not bad for a boy who ran away from his war ridden village at the age of 6 who, after losing all family, ended up living on market tables and pushing barrows in the central Freetown market!
