Summary

This project focuses on the education and character development of children and youths in Sierra Leone by providing scholarships, school and teaching supplies, and leadership training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Sierra Leone ranks at the bottom in United Nations Human Development Index. Thousands of families live below the bread line and simply cannot afford to send their children and youths to school. Many families and schools do not have the resources to provide much-needed school and teaching supplies. Many of the problems in Africa are leadership-related as they are partly or wholly a result of wrong decision-making and poor leadership.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project provides scholarships, teaching and school supplies, workshops and personal development resources. By doing so, we help reduce illiteracy and school drop-out rates, and empower students to become forward-thinking leaders of our nation.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project is an effective long-term investment that will help provide quality educational opportunities for more youths and young adults so that they can rise above poverty and become better decision makers.
