Transforming Lives Through Education in Sierra Leone

Education is a powerful tool that can change lives, and our efforts in Sierra Leone highlight this transformative potential. By providing the working children of Freetown with uniforms and sportswear we are supporting their access to education, offering them a chance to escape hazardous work environments and unlock opportunities that can lead to a brighter future. Our recent efforts in Sierra Leone mark the delivery of aid to our 30th country globally and our 5th in Africa. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to supporting communities worldwide.
