Memuna, 43, has worked at OAKS for 7 years. She is OAKS cleaner, she also assists Class 1 & 2 with pencil sharpening and is responsible for taking sick children home.
Memuna does not speak fluent English, however, she is trying hard and her vocabulary keeps increasing, more than can be said for our grasp of Mende!
Memuna is married to Edward. She has five live children from 11 pregnancies. Her eldest daughter is Marama, who is waiting for exam results to apply to Njala University. Hawa, daughter number two, passed her Primary exam at OAKS and now attends QRS in Junior Secondary 3. Edna, 15, attends Aladura Junior Secondary 3. Whilst sons Gibba 14, Class 6 and Edward 8 Class 2 both attend OAKS Primary.
Memuna lives very close to OAKS on the main Mendewa Road
