Constructing WCC Academy

by World Changing Centre Vetted


As an organisation, WCC supports research on child poverty and education in Africa. Intuitively, the main means of escaping poverty is education, taken in its broadest sense (formal and informal schooling, skills training and knowledge acquisition). WCC aims to give the children and young people in Sierra Leone a health service fit for the 21st century. This exists partly as an advisory service with plans to improve the capability in the near future.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term impact will be achieved by engagement and empowerment tools such as drama, sport and play activities so children and young people are kept focused. We also will ensure that wider education is implemented to mass community of the town to show the importance of education for children and young people to help develop their own prospects and to accelerate the growth and development of a self-contained community.
