Balla making EducAid's name in Venezuela

Balla playing football for his university.

A year or so ago, Balla Turay, EducAid past pupil, took up his scholarship to study ICT in Venezuela and has clearly been making his (and our) name since.  I was touched to receive this mail today:

Hi Miriam,

Attached are my grades for this semester which ended on Friday the 20/7/12 and I´m on holidays presently. 

I want to say much thanks to the EducAid staff and family as a whole for the great role they played in my life. 
All the achievements I´m making now are because of the holistic education I got from EducAid.

I will like to make it known to all that EducAid is not only the best in Sierra Leone but it´s one of best in the world.
The HOD for science was curious to know who is this Balla Turay at the University. I was called to his office on the 19th in order for him to interview me personally. He asked me to tell him the high school I went and what the educational system is like. After explaining to him about the EducAid holistic system he said “I don´t think there is any high school in Venezuela that covers a lot like your school.  Congratulations for your scores.  We are really happy to have you as a student here.” 

Words cannot really express how sorry I was to hear the death of the boy in Magbeni my condolences to his family and EducAid as a whole.


Love from Balla
