Bosana (Ismael) Toure

Bosana (Ismael) at Age 18 Grade 10

When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Ismael describes the role of an ambassador. He currently assists with many of the managerial tasks of running the Guinea Kids program.

To know Bosana Toure (aka Ismael) is to know a bright and shining star. A most charismatic young person, Ismael maintains his zest for life despite the tragic hardships he has endured as a young person.

Bosana took the name Ismael after both of his parents were killed in a car accident when he was 13.  This has been a tenuous period for Ismael and school. After his parents’ death, he lost interest in school and was found to be wandering his neighborhood instead of attending school. GKEF board members Karim Koumbassa and Alya Koumbassa both counseled Ismael, having brotherly heart to heart talks and encouraging him to stay in school. He continues with school and the GKEF program and he is our student in the highest grade level.

Ismael has a gift for creative and entrepreneurial intelligence. His capacity for learning is great and his potential needs to be guided and challenged by a supportive, high quality education experience.

Ismael likes English and wants to be an artist when he grows up.
