Improving Education in Sierra Leone

Teacher training. Once students have a school to attend, we focus on the quality of education children receive in that school. We work with communities to develop a basic system for tracking student attendance and performance as well as teacher qualifications. We work with local partners to implement a comprehensive teacher development strategy that includes Ministry of Education certification training, literacy instruction workshops, library training, and math and science instruction. We train and support teachers in our schools to become the best teachers they can be!

Teaching & Learning resources. In response to the lack of teaching and learning materials readily available to our teachers, we deliver a variety of resources for teachers and students to use in the classroom. These include locally written, illustrated, and produced stories at varying reading levels, curriculum books, teaching tools, and more. We are in regular communication with our partners to develop effective resources for teaching and learning.

Here are some of our most recent projects…
