Education West Africa helps school pupils in Sierra Leone get a better start in life.
Through education, young people can strive to escape poverty and get a job, earn money, live a healthier life, become independent and contribute to their family and the economy of their country.
We ask children, teachers and headteachers what their greatest needs are, and set up projects to fulfil those needs.
Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a life expectancy of 54 (World Bank data). Education is key to changing this for future generations.
