Sierra Leone and the Eric Bleumink Fund

28 November 2012

Sarah Bomkapre Kamara from Sierra Leone is studying at the University of Groningen thanks to a grant from the Eric Bleumink Fund. Before coming to Groningen, Sarah worked at Cotton Tree News, an independent radio project at the University of Sierra Leone. She says ‘... I believe that to make a difference, one must first be empowered. Part of empowerment for me is getting an education. As Mother Theresa once said, “To keep a lamp burning, you must put oil in it.”’

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
