Children's Assurance Program Sierra Leone (CAP-SL) plans to establish four libraries and resource centres each in the four regions of Sierra Leone with focus of improving access to education, Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) skills for children in rural communities in Sierra Leone. These facilities will also serve as a resource centres to provide mentorship, leadership and psychosocial supports for children in the Western Area Rural District, Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leone has widening access to education gaps, especially for children in rural communities as opposed to children in urban communities. This is leading to wide levels of illiteracy and poverty in rural communities in Sierra Leone. This project will improve access to education to 5000 children in four provincial areas in Sierra Leone through scaling up access to education and enable children in rural communities thrive and become empowered.
Children's Assurance Program Sierra Leone (CAP-SL) will provide free access to books; create healthy learning platforms and up-skill reading, writing, comprehension, and Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) skills for children in rural communities as a novelty. Engage communities on the increased importance of education for children so as to promote socio-economic development and transformation of communities and empower children to become better citizens.
Equip 5000 children with access to hands-on-learning resources and means to education will reduce or best eliminate illiteracy and poverty in rural communities through which children grow and be able to impact their communities and improve their family wellbeing. This project will also promote the Sustainable Development Goals 4&5 (Quality Education and Gender Equality) in Sierra Leone. This project will enable CAP-SL to partner with other organizations supporting children and women.
