COMMITMENT TO EMPOWER GIRLS IS OUR DESIRE
Together we can achieve the dream.
The purpose of “The Peagie Woobay Scholarship Fund” is to raise funds to help educate a lot of girls in her native land Sierra Leone, West Africa thus empowering them for their future and making them into powerful drivers of progress.
On this website I will share my vision for girls in Sierra Leone especially those who drop out of school due to teenage pregnancy, pictures, updates on events and future projects. Also a possibility for you to be part of the “Peagie Woobay Dream” through your generous donations.
The foundation also aims at promoting Sierra Leonean culture in Sweden through exhibitions where art works, traditional dances will be displayed. It will also pass on to young Sierra Leoneans born in Sweden the opportunity to learn about their cultural heritage through cultural classes where they will be taught History and Geography, traditional dances and songs, ancestors, tribes, tales and local food.
We have compiled a collection of poems which provokes thought, inspires and represent Africa. The book , "Women, Men and Country: An Anthropology of African poems", is available for purchase on Amazon. Here is the link you would need. Proceeds from all sales of this publication will go towards the Peagie Woobay Scholarship fund. The charity was set up to highlight the importance of educating girls and the risks of teenage pregnancy.
My projects will focus on developing communities in Sierra Leone especially children, girls and teenage mothers.

Review of our charity Walk in Stockholm,
Sweden held on the 4th of June 2016 to help raise awareness on the importance of education and also raise funds for the girls by Kadie Williams
So a few years back when this organization started i was very proud but could not support so much since i had just had a baby, but gradually am happy to say that i am participating and will continue to do so. For me it is that simple, I´m a Sierra Leonean who loves her country and to see such a productive and effective charity organisation as the Peagie woobay Scholarship Fund is very inspiring. My mother was also a teenage mum and a smart one as a matter of fact who was not given the opportunity to finish her education, who knows what she could have become? My love for my mum is why am so motivated to see this brave woman, Peagie, help educate more girls. Her dedication never seizes to amaze me. Come Rain or snow she and her team are alway putting these girls first. So when i was invited this year to lead the walk to educate more girls, i cancelled my work and joined her because i believe in her mission. Walking with so many people that day was so amazing, the food was great, the atsmosphere was peaceful and I was blessed to be part of it. All i can say is that I’m proud of her for giving these girls a second chance. Join me support The Peagie Woobay Scholarship Fund so we can educate more girls in Sierra Leone especially the teenage mums who have dropped out of school.
