Established in 2013, Adama International Primary and Junior Secondary School (AIA caters for boys and girls and vulnerable children.

However, the acting head master, Ansumana Brima, said with a total of 71 pupils and 7 teachers, the school is in desperate need to relocate as the present environment is not conducive for learning. The school offers courses in three international languages: English, French and Arabic, as well as courses in the sciences, arts and commerce.

The acting head teacher commended Tarrawally for his relentless effort in supporting the school but said there are challenges hindering the provision of a better learning environment and therefore needs the help of the Government, individuals and private institutions to help sustain the effort of the founder. “The young man has tried a lot. Despite all the challenges, he hasn’t given up on his dream of providing education to these children. We must help sustain what he has started for the benefit of the children. I am therefore appealing to everyone to come to our aid,” he said.
