When students are unable to continue their studies, the CanSerra Scholarship program provides funding to make their dreams come true!

Received this letter from one of sponsored students to her sponsor. Thought it was too lovely not to share! 

Dear Mr. Blaine and Everyone,

I want to start by expressing my sincere thanks for your support on my educational pursuit three years ago. Time flies!

I just wanted to let you know that today, the 9th of December, 2023 is the end of my university journey. I couldn't have done it if not for your support. I just wanted to say my thanks and appreciation again and again.

May the Lord continue to bless, protect and provide for you more and more. Amen.

Our graduation will be on the 20th of January 2024, and would have been so happy if you could be here to witness this great day of my life.

I am waiting on my final University, the State Board, and the Nurses Board Council Results before I can start work officially as an RN Nurse. Thanks so much once again

My name is Kaday Alima Bangura and I am 24 years old. I was born in a small village called Rogbin but grew up in the capital Freetown. I have only one brother.


I attended the CanSerra High School and got a good WASSCE result in 2020 that helped me gain entry into the nursing program at the Ernest Bai Koroma University of Science and Technology Makeni Campus. Success into this program couldn't have been possible if not for the timely intervention of a loving and kind hearted humanitarian in Canada 


Words cannot be enough to show you how much I appreciate your concern to people like us you don't even know. Thank you so much. 


I am presently in my 2nd year of nursing program at the Ernest Bai Koroma University of Science and Technology Makeni Campus.


I love soccer and it is my favourite sport. I love to dance and cook. I know how to prepare different types of foods especially our African meals. I promise to prepare you a very delicious African meal at any time you visit our country. 


Thank you for the support and everything you have contributed towards my education.

Hello Sponsors,

My name is Josephine Adama Conteh and I am 21 years old. I was born on the 13th day of October 2001. I am from an extended family of four children all girls, and I am the second child. I am a Sierra Leonean, a Temne by tribe and also a Christian by religion.

I grew up at a very crowded community in the Central part of my country. I am not from a rich family so having this scholarship is blessing to my life and i will forever be grateful for it.

I attended the CanSerra Secondary school and got a good result to enter into University. Currently am a second year Law student at the University of Makeni. Being a lawyer has always been my passion and seeing justice served in the right way gives me joy.

At first, due to financial constraints I never thought that I’ll be able to go to college, but thanks to God for the CanSerra scholarship I am now a student.

I love reading and especially enjoy reading novels.
I am good at hairdressing, and one thing I always get praises for is my handwriting.

My dream is to one day become a successful lawyer and in turn give back to society, and help children especially orphans, and see that the girl child Education is a must, and to also help the needy. Thank you.
