Ahmadiyya Muslim Secondary School and other nine Secondary Schools in Freetown have received donations from Mariatu Kargbo Foundation and Global Group of Companies.


The donation which took place at the Ahmadiyya School compound, Kissy Dock Yard on the 28thFebruary 2017 brought together nine more secondary schools in Freetown under one roof as they received smart phones from the two groups.

 

Mariatu Kargbo is an ex-pupil of that school. The donation to the school ranged from emergency cell phones, sport jerseys and musical instruments.

 

Before making the donation, Mariatu Kargbo thanked the principal, staff of the school and the other visiting principals of different schools that graced the ceremony. She said she was a daughter from the school, and was pleased to have gone back to her alma mater to give them what she described as a small token.

 

Mariatu Kargbo Foundation and Global Group of Companies believed that education is the act of learning through a medium that both educates and entertains. She urged the students to take their studies seriously. ‘If one wants to touch the past, touch a rock, wants to touch the present, touch a flower likewise if one wants to touch the future, touch a life,’this she said is her belief.

 

She challenged the pupils that it takes them to make a difference.

 

“We make a living by what we get and make a life by what we give. With the efforts of other ex-students all over the world we will make our school better and serve as role models.”

 

She also thanked the Chinese Government and the Government of Sierra Leone for their endless support in improving education in both countries.

 

The Principal of the Mariatu Kargbo Junior Secondary School, Alhaji Karimu Sesay also thanked Mariatu and her team for such a wonderful donation.

 

He said that it was not the first time she was donating to the school.
