Back to School Supplies Drive

In 2018, Education for Hope (EFH) shipped over 200 sport-packs with educational resources for the children of Rogbomtama and RoTumba villages in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Currently, there are over 250 children enrolled in both schools. The communities are poverty-stricken and solely rely on subsistence farming; basic school supplies simply cannot be afforded. EFH has been a beacon of hope striving to redefine the children’s future. We’re actively engaged with the parents to ensure that their children are not denied the foundational block of an education due to lack of resources;  it is pivotal that these children remain enrolled in school and attend classes daily.

We cannot do this on our own hence our request for you to join Education for Hope  in making a difference.  We are raising money to purchase at least 250 backpacks and school supplies that will benefit the students, teachers and community.  Each backpack inclusive of  supplies costs $10.00 and contains notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons, erasers and  sharpeners. A generous donation of $10 per child will yield great return; a smile of appreciation, a boost of confidence and an indelible hope for tomorrow.

We thank you in advance for your huge sacrifice as each child sponsored is an invaluable investment that will redefine their future.

Forever grateful,
Education for HOPE
