Hi, I am Alhaji Amadu Kondeh, I am 21 years old. I am a beneficiary of Schooling for Life, studying Hardware and Networking (ICT) which has always been my dream course and I love it so much.
I thought my dreams and aspirations were already shattered because going to University was an impossible thing for my family to afford, which led me into street hawking for two years after acquiring a very colourful high school certificate.
All my impossibilities transformed to possibilities after meeting Schooling for Life. I will forever appreciate Schooling for Life for putting me back on track to continue the positive race I was already out of and for letting me know the impact of love, respect, tolerance, peace, and oneness which I was totally ignorant of before. Trainings from the skills classes have improved my life in diverse ways and has helped changed me positively from the negative person I was. As we move on, am looking forward to more challenge and hope to learn more with Schooling for Life. Thank you.

I enjoy the scholarship Schooling for Life gave me; while others are thinking of how they can pay their college tuition, I am there thinking how to get the best grade as a Schooling for Life student.

I seriously like the skills training as it creates good impact in me and teaches us something technical in life, like how to be creative, how to be with others and how to be the man you want to be.

My name is Mustapha Lagga and I am a beneficiary of Schooling for Life, studying at the Milton Margai College of Education and Technology, department of Building and Civil Engineering, national diploma year one (1).
Since I started the Skills for a Successful future programme in Schooling for Life, I have learnt and enjoyed the team work being manifested by fellow beneficiaries. The scholarship being given to deserving students to study a course of their own choice which I was fortunate to acquire has been playing a great role in achieving my goal. Due to this reason, one of the most remarkable thing I enjoyed learning was that nothing is impossible because even the word IMPOSSIBLE is saying I’M POSSIBLE by just a means of punctuation.
