The Yak Jones Foundation headed by Dr Yakama Monty Jones at the Global Network office at Pademba Road donated books and other schooling items to the Dukono Community School in Neni Chiefdom, Koinadugu District.
Making the donation, Dr Yakama Jones said she saw a young man by the name of Ariefa Kumara pleading over SLBC’s “We Yus” program, explaining how they started the school and the current situation. She said they put together a small donation that they believe will help them in their strides to enhance education.
Dr Yakama Jones averred that they too are calling on people to come with educational materials that will be put together and shared to vulnerable schools across the country.
Thanking the Yak Jones Foundation, Ariefa Kumara said he was very happy that his advocacy for the school was received by Yak Jones Foundation. He called on others to follow Yak Jones Foundation to make such donation as the school is in dire need of a shelter.
Ariefa said the school was started by Momorie Marrah, who is an SSII student and is trying to educate the children in the village.
Other speakers during the donation were Mr Koroma of Global Network for Children, Binta Akibo-Betts who is part of the Yak Jones Foundation, Mrs Patricia Koroma of Children Education Foundation and Momorie Marrah.
All of them thanked the Yak Jones Foundation and they called on other Sierra Leoneans to come to the aid of the school so that the children can have better education.
