The United Kingdom (UK) branch of Lokomasama Development Association (LODA) has donated sixteen (16) desktop computers, two (2) projectors, three (3) printers, video player, two (2) 12.5KVA generators, Oxford Dictionaries, and a host of learning materials to two secondary schools – Kankaylay and Lokomasama Secondary Schools – in the Lokomasama Chiefdom, Port Loko District. The donation took place on Friday 27th May 2011.


In his statement, Chairman of Lokomasama Development Association – UK branch, Mr. Alimamy S. Kamara explained that on assuming office as chairman of the organization, he had assured the membership of his tireless effort to move the Lokomasama Chiefdom forward.


He pointed out that the donation was the pilot phase of a bigger program from the chiefdom, while assuring that more goodies are underway.

According to him, he has single-handedly supported over one hundred school children across the country, as part of his contribution towards the improvement of education.

 

Kamara explained that the membership of LODA-UK was drawn from the United Kingdom and regional members Lokomasama, with a common interest of developing the chiefdom.


He used the forum as an opportunity to appeal to all stakeholders in the Chiefdom to put hands on deck towards the chiefdom’s development, as according to him, development can be achieved faster where there is collective effort.


He disclosed that a further shipment of educational and agricultural materials plus a host of other goodies is already on its way to Sierra Leone.

Kamara called on the principals of the beneficiary schools to use the donated materials for their intended purposes.


He pointed out that education is now largely associated with computers, which according to him, was why they included computers among the donated learning materials.


“It is our belief that the computers will equip the pupils with modern skills,” he said, He assured the pupils of more support including scholarships for the best pupils in the near future.


Receiving the donation, Principal for Lokomasama Secondary School, Mr. Alieu J. Timbo, commended LODA-UK for the wonderful gesture, adding that the donation will help connect his pupils with the world at large.


He disclosed that a good number of the pupils have never set eyes on the computer, noting that they have now been opportune to see, torch and learn how to use the computer.


The ceremony was chaired by the head of West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), Mohamed Sapateh.
