Help Build We Yone Secondary School

We Yone Child Foundation (WYCF) runs two primary schools in two of the most neglected areas in Freetown: Kroo Bay, a community built on a water-side rubbish dump, and George Brook, on the rocky hillside of Freetown. Our mission is to provide sustainable education and care to underprivileged children and to overcome the social and environmental problems that deepen and perpetuate the cycle of poverty in these communities.
 We have long been frustrated by seeing our promising primary school pupils drop out when they get to the secondary stage due to the inability to travel to schools many miles away.
  Which is why we have secured a piece of land right next to our Primary School in George Brook. We have the architectural plans, the bill of quantities and the final budget for a simple three-story cement block building:

1. Substructure – SLL 92,591,000

2. Concrete work – SLL 176,538,000

3. Blockwork – SLL 85,200,000

4. Roofing – SLL 36,850,000

5. Woodwork – SLL 41,529,000

6. Metalwork – SLL 28,200,000

7. Plumbing – SLL 20,330,000

8. Electrical installation – SLL 19,065,000

9. Floor, walls and ceiling finishing – SLL 64,345,000

10. Painting – SLL 31,403,000

TOTAL: SLL 596,081,000 (≈ £ 55,000)

 Although we couldn't reach our extremely ambitious goal of having the building to operational standards in September 2019, our aim is now to have it fully finished by the next school year 2020-2021!

 Each contributor will be regularly updated as to the progress and costs of the building. We believe in complete transparency so ask us any questions you would like – sara@weyonechildfoundation.org.

 Thank you for your support!
