Sarjo Saidy, a Grade 10 student at the Gambia Senior Secondary School and a native of Kafuta Village, is appealing to the government, the private sector, NGOs, philanthropists and individuals to come to his rescue by helping him with sponsorship to complete his high school.

Sarjo, who walked into The Point offices yesterday, told our reporter in an interview that his father "is an old man and cannot afford to pay his school fees since he is out of job".

"My mother is a gardener who supports the family and household from her little income," he said.

The young Sarjo, who also invented a radio station in his native village, Kafuta, used the ooportunity to appeal to the general public to help him to purchase materials for his radio station, which has two frequencies (105.0 and 99.7) so that he could maximise his potentials.

Sarjo, who resides in Serrekunda, added: "I am appealing to anybody who can help me to pay my school fees or buy the materials for my radio station."

Meanwhile, anyone who may want to help Sarjo Saidy can call him on 9917752 or 7345389.
