Summary

Many families in Sierra Leone live far below the poverty line and sending children to school is very challenging. This project will ship much-needed school books and school supplies to children in Sierra Leone. By providing school books and school supplies to these families it reduces the school-related costs making school possible for the children in Sierra Leone.

Challenge

Each item on the needed books and school supply list is a potential added burden that could prevent a child from either attending school or benefiting in full from school. This project will raise funds to ship much needed books and school supplies to children in Sierra Leone.

Solution

This project will help to bring economic relief to families by providing free books and school supplies. Funds will cover the cost of shipping 15 drums full of school books and supplies to help educate children. According to the World Post, Nearly half the world's children born this year will end their school years without the basic skills needed for the global labor market in 2030. Having books and supplies can help change those statistics.

Long-Term Impact

The project is an effective investment that will help provide quality books and school supplies for more youths and young adults so that they can rise above poverty and become better decision makers. The principal economic advantage of this education project is that it will produce people who are capable of making a greater contribution to the national economy.
