As I became more interested, he finally revealed that he and his four siblings were orphaned and now living with their grandmother. His mother had died when she was giving birth to his youngest sibling Ebrima. His father had recently died in a car accident. Without a proper way to earn money, Essa was no longer able to attend his school. His main motivation is to gain an education so that he can provide for Musa (11), Nabintou (9), Mamed (7), and Ebrima (now 4).
His family is provided one meal per day and he's desperate to do whatever he can to provide a better life for his entire family, including his grandmother. He's a very genuine young man who has reached out to me on a daily basis since before Christmas. He's respectful of my limitations, but I made a promise that I would do what I could to help him, being a limited (by U.S. standards) school teacher. Any amount of money will be helpful.
He attends the Brikama Methodist Academy, but is currently on hold due to his lack of financial means, so his need is immediate, but will also be on-going.I will be sending him whatever money I raise in the first week, plus my own contribution, via to get the ball rolling on January 18th via World Remit. If you'd like to make your donations directly, please contact me via instagram Namaste Alchemy or on facebook FB Tony Pizza and I can send you his grandmother's information for World Remit. Thank you for the time you've taken to read this. Please relay this to any person you might think be willing and able to help.
