The Education of girls in Sierra Leone is not taken seriously. There is no solely state girls boarding school in the entire country. State subsidies on the 'free girl child junior secondary education' is always paid in arrears. Fathers do not also take the education of their daughters as an important issue. Instead, daughters are given into early marriages with men as old as their fathers. School drop out rates are thus very high among girls.


Girls-friendly Education and Boarding home facilities will be constructed and functional . 500 girls will stay in residential hostels and acquire diverse educational pursuits in other to become self reliant and liberated women in Sierra Leone. The project activities are regularly monitored.
