Field Trip Looks at Poverty in Nearby Villages

Students from EduNations’ Senior Secondary School conducted a field trip to examine the causes of and solutions for poverty in neighboring communities. Taking advantage of February’s mid-term break, students journeyed during three days to observe signs of poverty in six different villages: Mabankra, Magbengbeh, Chindicom, Nonkoba, Maforay Bap, Maforay Kuna and Berembeh.

Signs of poverty started with poor sanitary conditions including poor toilet facilities and the absence of a fresh water supply which forces people to fetch water from streams which frequently dry up and also carry black fly larvae which cause “river blindness.” Also disturbing was the number of children with malnutrition stunted growth, walking naked in the village around dilapidated, pest-infested houses on dirt (or mud) roads. These accompany the following phenomena typical of subsistence-level village-living: high birth rate, early marriage, high unemployment and illiteracy rates, premature death and of course, no schools.

After their trip, students wrote essays with their suggestions on how they would work to solve these problems. Besides getting the students out of the classroom to engage in “real world” issues, the study helped them with critical thinking and problem solving to give them relevant experience for the future.

While some of these issues are beyond the scope of what EduNations does, we believe providing a quality education is the critical component which will enable progress in these other areas. With your support EduNations schools can continue ignite hope so that the next generations of Sierra Leone can see sustainable improvement.
