WCC water project (Sierra Leone)

by World Changing Centre


World Changing Centre (WCC) is a UK registered charity (No. 1136070) that promotes child education in Sierra Leone. At WCC we believe that education - including formal and informal schooling, skills training and knowledge acquisition - is central to escaping poverty. Currently we operate an advisory service but we plan to develop the region by transforming health and sanitation standards through social mobilisation and awareness-raising around disease prevention.
