What We Do

We help the children of Sierra Leone through the process of education, allowing them the opportunity to make choices for their future.

We are a small charity that are hugely passionate about our cause, making a difference to the lives of the children and the community.

So far we have:

  • Built a school in 2008 that taught 100 children.

  • Built a stand alone secondary school in 2019 to teach a combined intake of near to 500 children.

  • Managed a costed expansion to our school 3 times to teach up to 300 children by 2016

  • Extended our secondary school in 2021 and now teaching 745 children across 2 centres – employing 30 staff across teaching, teacher assistants, nurses and ancillary workers

  • Of the 400 primary school students in the last 12 years to have taken the national primary school exam up to 2021 we have a 399 pass rate – we believe this is unmatched nationally, especially when there is no precondition to register children without selection

  • We registered our whole cohort in 2019 and 2020 for the national Junior Secondary school exam (JSS – our GCSE equivalent) and achieved 100% pass rate and were the top school in the Southern District (population of some 1.25 million)

We need to raise more funds:

  • To cover the annual running costs of our expanding teaching and support staff plus school maintenance and teaching aids

  • Substantial donations will help us build new school facilities to educate senior secondary school students – this development will be based on the same proven structured expansion proven above.
