Improving education in Sierra Leone through responsible, sustainable, nonprofit partnerships

We build schools

We are a nonprofit organization that revitalizes Sierra Leonean communities, empowers children and improves socioeconomic conditions for families, communities, and future generations.

We train teachers

Through opportunities that only an education can provide, we strive to break the cycle of poverty, one school at a time, by training teachers at intensive summer institutes.

We work as partners

Based in Seattle, Schools for Salone has a proven track record of working with Sierra Leoneans as they rebuild schools destroyed during a ten-year civil war. Once funds are raised, new schools are built in three months.
