Summary

Project supports the education and development of children and youths in Sierra Leone by providing scholarships, school and teaching supplies, and leadership training. This project supports economic develop by supporting education as a proven path to individual and national development. The leadership training / development component challenges youths and young adults to become creative and forward-thinking leaders. Overall the project focus is on character development.

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?

By providing scholarships, teaching and school supplies, students will be able to continue school and to learn effectively. This will help to empower or enhance student learning and reduce the illiteracy and school drop-out rate. Youths and young adults will be trained on how to creatively find a solution to the challenges that the nation is facing and how to be forward thinking leaders. Workshops and personal development resources will help build character and mature leadership.

Potential Long Term Impact

Project contributes to the achievement of the UN Millennium goal - ensuring that children will complete primary schooling. It is an effective long-term investment to eradicating poverty and will help improve the quality of education. Through the leadership training, the youths and young adults will be fully prepared on how to be creative and forward-thinking leaders. The beneficiaries, and the people they interact with, will make better decisions that will affect the course of the nation.
