Addressing a Need
Professor Mohamed S. Mansaray hailed from Magbaikoli (pronounced Ma-bi-ko-li), a small town in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone in West Africa. In 1999 after a visit to Sierra Leone to pay his last respect to the death of his mother, Prof. Mansaray took it upon himself in response to the cries and wishes of the community of Magbaikoli to put up a school building that will provide the opportunity of western education to the kids in the village. Prof. Mansaray named the school after his late father, Pa Karim Mansaray. Since late 2000, Prof. Mansaray has embarked on active financial support in the construction of a school structure that now holds over 250 pupils from Kindergarten to grade six. Initially, Prof. Mohamed Mansaray paid the salaries for all the teachers (they now receive a government stipend) as well as paying the cost of school supplies and other school amenities.

What seems like a little goes a long way.
The original structure was erected in 2001. In 2021 we completely remodeled the structure due to donated funds. In the future, we would like to add a library, more classrooms and two additional schools. Adding a Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary School will allow all youth to remain in the village to finish their education.
