Constructing WCC Academy

by World Changing Centre Vetted

Summary

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.

Challenge

A decade of civil war,EBOLA, and mudslide destroyed much of Sierra Leone's infrastructure and education system. In 2014, at the request of community leaders, WCC hired out space in a community hall and employed several local volunteer graduates as teachers. WCC began to offer Primary and Secondary school education to 50 forgotten and abandoned local children who were orphaned and left destitute .

Solution

Increase in primary school enrolments and reduction in the number of school drop outs to improve educational attainment in core subjects. Greater awareness of disease prevention and control to reduce mortality rates of disadvantaged people in Sierra Leone. Improved access for the most marginalised beneficiaries in education and health care services, increasing disadvantaged people's opportunities and future prospects.Improved sustainable access to safe water and sanitation to reduce illness.

Long-Term Impact

The implementation of the Life Safe, Play Safe module, with HIV/AIDS prevention focuses in Coach and Community Sensitisation.This will include Community sensitiasation, health education, and adult education programs on disease prevention.The use of sport and play activities will help children and parents to enhance healthy child development, foster individual talents and strengthen community partnerships. Sport and play activities will empower and mobilize communities .
