Raised by 47 people in 3 months
My name is Patrick Adu, and I am the first Maligie Scholar from Sierra Leone, West Africa. Thanks to this scholarship, I have been able to come to the United States to study Theatre Arts at Lawrence University. Today I am asking for your help so that I can use what I have learned in the US to help children, young adults and communities in Sierra Leone when I return.
Theatre Art has always been a very important aspect of society until it was cut short by eleven (11) years civil war. Twenty years (20) has gone by after the war and Theatre Art still remains dead and forgotten. The performing Arts is yet to return to schools and communities. As a result, the tradition is in danger of being forgotten to history.
With your help, I want to go and revive Theatre Art and Art Education in Sierra Leone.

My goal is to go and rebuild Theatre culture and practice through performances and educational programs that provide a vital voice to our people. I want to get a dedicated space that will be used to work on reviving the art in Sierra Leone. I plan on not only teaching Theatre at a university, but also starting Theatre arts education programs for schools. With your help, we can save and preserve a Theatre culture in danger, develop the skills of young people that can be used to effect social change, encourage social cohesion, and create jobs.

Thank you so much for anything you are able to contribute; every little bit helps.
