Mike Wilson, Trustee
I have been a trustee of EWA since 2013. Previously, I was an education officer for 26 years in 4 local authorities and Director of Education for the Diocese of Chichester for 3 years. EWA is still making a real difference for children in Sierra Leone, and for their schools. Our direct links with the dioceses of Bo and Freetown enabled us to provide greatly valued support during the Ebola crisis of 2014-2016. This response built upon EWA’s continuing provision of funds for desks and uniforms in those schools where they are most needed.
I am also delighted that EWA has been behind the provision of conferences for Sierra Leone headteachers. These have helped Heads to improve the educational opportunities they are giving to their pupils.
