The Dr. Imambay Kamara International Academy and Dr. Imambay Kamara Orphanage Home have been launched at Kasangoh village in the Kaffu Bullom chiefdom, Lungi.

Dr. Imbambay Kamara, a globally renowned humanitarian activist launched the two projects which were wide described as significant milestone for the community and the world at large.

Dr. Imbambay Kamara is an award-winning human rights ambassador, entrepreneur and author who has devoted her life to improving the lives of others. She is a recipient of the POTUS Presidential award, which recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the betterment of society.

The launch of the Dr. Imambay Kamara International Academy and Doctor Imambay Kamara Orphanage Home is a testament to her commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children in Africa.

The school and orphanage will provide education and shelter to orphans and other vulnerable children in Kasangoh village and surrounding communities.

The Academy will provide quality education to children who might not have had access to it otherwise. It will equip them with the necessary skills to become self-sufficient and contribute positively to society.

The curriculum will be designed to provide a well-rounded education that includes not only academic subjects but also life skills and values that will help the children become responsible and ethical adults.

The Orphanage, on the other hand, will provide shelter, food, and healthcare to children who have lost their parents or are unable to live with them for various reasons. It will provide a safe and nurturing environment where the children can grow and thrive. The orphanage will be staffed by trained caregivers who will provide the children with the love and support they need.

The launch of the Dr. Imambay Kamara International Academy and Doctor Imambay Kamara Orphanage Home was attended by community leaders, and well-wishers from all over the country.

The event was a celebration of hope and a testament to what can be achieved when people come together to make a difference.

Chief Adikalie the community headman expressed his gratitude to Dr. Imambay Kamara for her support to her community he further disclosed that children often have to walk miles away to access schools and children often become drop out due to the inability to access schools.

Dr. Imambay Kamara’s son, whose name is junior, expressed a profound appreciation to the community people. “I want to express my gratitude to the community people. I flew all the way here to grace this occasion and help my mom achieve her goal because it’s something she has passion for. She is a woman who has the spirit of giving and helping others. If the community people utilize it well this school will produce many future leaders.”

In her speech, Dr. Imambay Kamara expressed her gratitude to everyone who had supported her in making the project a reality. She also urged the community to embrace the school and orphanage and take advantage of the opportunities they provide.

She disclosed where the passion was born “my mother was a disabled, she struggled so much to raise us and she eventually died in 2001 without ripping the seed she sown.

That was exactly where the Disabled International was born. Disabled International Foundation Sierra Leone (DIF-SIL) has been the heart of charity since 2008 in Sierra Leone with the aim of improving and seeking to make social changes in the lives of those who are affected. I was on a mission to take all disabled from the streets of Freetown hence the Disabled International Foundation Sierra Leone (DIF-SIL) provided skills training, enhancing and sheltering the disabled.” She further disclosed that she loves education and wants to help the kids back home because education is key to the nation’s development which is why she has built 3 schools in Sierra Leone.

Dr. Imambay Kamara called on the government to come to her aid “I am calling on the Government of Sierra Leone, especially the Minister of Education to please help us out with teacher’s recruitment, salaries and other amenities as a humanitarian I cannot do it alone. I need your help, please step in and rescue the people of these villages”.  Dr. Imambay Kamara has other plans of building a mosque, an agro-business and a hospital in order to provide development and employment for the community people.

The launch of the Dr. Imambay Kamara International Academy and Doctor Imambay Kamara Orphanage Home is a significant step towards improving the lives of vulnerable children in Africa. It is a shining example of what can be achieved when individuals use their skills, resources, and passion to make a difference.
