Send 250 Ebola and Mudslide Orphans to School

by Jersey African Support Services


Jersey African Support Services will construct a 4 classroom building in the Western Rural District of Sierra Leone to provide education for 250 orphans who lost their parents during the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone and the 2017 mudslide in Freetown. These children are presently unable to go to school due to lack of support. The project will also provide free meals and other school materials for these children.

The 2014 Ebola outbreak and the recent 2017 mudslide in Sierra Leone killed nearly 10,000 people and left thousands of orphans who are now face with serious challenges to continue their education. Jersey African Support Services will construct a 4 classroom building equipped with water and sanitation facilities to provide education for these children.


This project will solve the problem through the construction of a 4 classroom building equipped with water and sanitation facilities, provision of free teaching and learning materials, school uniforms, shoes and provision of free meals for all children involved in the project.

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate 250 orphans to help them become self-reliance and overcome poverty in the long run. They, in turn, will be able to assist the less privileged among their family circles in terms of education, health and well-being; and all will contribute to the socio-economic development of their communities. The school constructed will serve as a center to educate future generations yet unborn who will all rise up to become future leaders of their society.
