A young Sierra Leone activist and student at Berea College, Kamuskay Kamuskay has been featured in this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign video by the college, sharing his experience and explaining why Berea deserves support on Giving Tuesday. Founded in 1855, Berea provides tuition-free education to promising students across Appalachia and beyond. It is the only college in America that asks students to pay no tuition but maintains top accreditation.
Kamuskay was selected due to his contribution, leadership experience, and journey back home. “I was reached out to by the marketing team to help raise money for the school since it is a nonprofit and offers free education,” he told Salone Messenger during an interview.
This #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to help Berea College provide students with the first-class educational experience they deserve, without burdening them with massive debt. Please make a gift today to help Berea students “take off” in life: https://bit.ly/46xc01h
