Presenting the gifts, the President of SAFE, Massah Kamara said the launch of the FQE by President Bio, is to give equal access to all children and allow every burden or responsibility to be placed on the shoulders of the President and the Government. This, according to her, made both the United States of America Chapter and those in Sierra Leone to think of deprived communities.
The Financial Secretary of SAFE, Mrs. Joan Kalawa said they did a feasibility study to determine the community that will benefit from this year’s gesture and picked Kroo Bay which is one of the most vulnerable and deprived community that deserves their help. “This is our own way of giving back to our society. We know and feel the constraints most parents go through to send their kids to school and so we believe we should be helping each other in order to make a better Sierra Leone”, she said.
Receiving the gifts, the Head Teacher of Kroo Bay Community Primary School, Abdul Bundu Kamara hailed the organization for thinking about them, adding that this will serve as a motivation to the pupils who are in dire need of school bags, books and other learning materials.
Mrs. Adama Gbla, Head Mistress of the We Yone Child Foundation Primary School commended SAFE for the timely distribution of the materials. She added that the school will be launching a competition among the various classes and some of the bags will be going as prizes for those that will be emerging with excellent grades in their exams.
