Purposeful Education: My Bet Against Poverty

Ebrima Sawaneh

Have you ever wondered how a village boy with limited resources could rise to become a Group COO & CFO of three seaports with over a billion dollars of assets?

Born to farmers in the village of Saruja, Ebrima Sawaneh enrolled himself in school at the age of eight when he felt lonely at home. At some point, his family could not afford to pay for his education, which led to him dropping out of school twice - secondary school and university.

With the support of his father's cousins, he returned and completed senior school with one of the best results in the Gambia. He met kind men and women who helped him get a job and mentored him. He became a chartered accountant, completed an MBA in Finance, and attended multiple executive courses. His quest for knowledge transformed him, taking him to nations and across continents, from Lagos to Dubai via Libreville.
