About Mariatu

  • Age: 10 years old

  • School: Vickrays Community Primary School

  • Location: Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa

  • Dream Job: Lawyer

  • Mariatu is one of the many orphans who lost both parents to the Ebola epidemic in Africa the past year. She has gone through a very difficult time financially and emotionally. The rest of her family struggles to get by, earning less than a dollar a day. Right now, Mariatu resides in Develop Africa's Dream Home - an orphanage for those effected from the Ebola crisis. Mariatu has big dreams of becoming a lawyer and is excited for an education.

    100% of your donation will go towards Mariatu's scholarship. With your help, we can provide Mariatu with a year of tuition, books, clothes and materials for class projects.
