Balla making EducAid’s name in Venezuela

Balla playing football for his university.

A year or so ago, Balla Turay, EducAid past pupil,
took up his scholarship to study ICT in Venezuela and has clearly been making
his (and our) name since.  I was touched to receive this mail today:
Hi
Miriam,

Attached
are my grades for this semester which ended on Friday the 20/7/12 and I´m on
holidays presently. 

I
want to say much thanks to the EducAid staff and family as a whole for the
great role they played in my life. 
All
the achievements I´m making now are because of the holistic education I got
from EducAid.
I
will like to make it known to all that EducAid is not only the best in Sierra
Leone but it´s one of best in the world.
The
HOD for science was curious to know who is this Balla Turay at the University.
I was called to his office on the 19th in order for him to interview me
personally. He asked me to tell him the high school I went and what the
educational system is like. After explaining to him about the EducAid holistic
system he said “I don´t think there is any high school in Venezuela that covers
a lot like your school.  Congratulations
for your scores.  We are really happy to
have you as a student here.” 
Words
cannot really express how sorry I was to hear the death of the boy in Magbeni
my condolences to his family and EducAid as a whole.
Thanks 
Love
from Balla
