Keep Kids in School in Sierra Leone

A school to attend. Our first step toward keeping kids in school is making sure they have a school to attend. We work with local partners to build schools and maintain and improve existing school infrastructure to make it easier for students to attend regularly. This includes solar panels to provide light for evening study, libraries, and other amenities. We also build septic latrines and rainwater collection handwashing stations at all our schools to keep our students healthy.

Keeping girls in school. Our reproductive health program, called Uman Talk, is another crucial piece of keeping kids, especially girls, in school. Through this program, we train girls and boys in reproductive health and give girls access to reusable sanitary pads.

Scholarships. We provide scholarships and other forms of basic support to at-risk children who need extra support to stay in school and learn.

Here are some of our most recent projects…
