Poverty is the end result when children do not have access to education. Additional undesirable outcomes include violence, abuse, exploitation, and a leadership void. We are changing the outcomes by providing educational support to families and schools in Sierra Leone. We are strategically targetting and meeting pivotal needs such as scholarships, school and teaching supplies, and leadership training. Investing in education yields tremendous benefits both in the short and long term.
According to the United Nations, 42% of African school children will drop out before the end of primary education. Many schools lack the fundamental resources essential for quality education. Unfortunately, gaining a proper education is challenging for impoverished or underprivileged families in Africa. There is an urgent need to help provide quality education in concert with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This project provides scholarships, teaching and school supplies, workshops and personal development resources. By doing so, we help reduce illiteracy and school dropout rates. These interventions address the failure points and weak areas that need boosting. Providing quality education to children reflects the fact that every child is entitled to fundamental human rights and is to be treated with dignity. Education is a sustainable means to alleviate poverty and bring lasting change.
The project is an effective long-term investment as it provides quality educational opportunities for children and youths. This is helping them to rise above poverty, become independent and better decision-makers. They are then better capable of making a significant contribution to their families, communities, nation and the world at large
