Summary

With Ebola aftermaths and recently the COVID-19 crisis, Sierra Leone continues to be saddled by huge challenges of addressing past and current recovery shocks. The odds have not been in the favor of majority of children, more so girls hoping to complete their education.

Challenge

A country with decade of civil war, further ravaged by an Ebola epidemic and recently the COVID-19 crisis continues to be saddled by huge challenges of addressing post-war and Ebola Recovery and COVID shocks. The odds have not been in the favor of majority of Sierra Leonean children hoping to complete their education in pursuit of better development aspirations. In Sierra Leone's most deprived District lies majority of communities; housing pupils with very few conducive spaces for learning.

Solution

This project will significantly help children particularly girls to stay in school while continuing their education and improving academic outcomes. Your supports will help make it reality for majority of Sierra Leonean children. Collaboratively, we are empowering girls, fostering their welfare and dignity and enhancing spaces for learning. This project is closing the access gap to a descent toilet and water so more girls are able to stay in school and graduate to reach their fullest potentials.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of this intervention is that we will be creating safer and conducive learning spaces for children; making education thrive in poor and deprived settings and communities in some of Sierra Leone's hard-to-reach districts. The other long-term impact is that we will be supporting to keep the girl child in school while maintaining their dignity to a safe toilet/sanitation facility that is separate from boys. School enrollment will ultimately rise and performance will do too.
