Providing nursery and primary education to children in Mabomboh, Sierra Leone.

We would love you to be part of our journey and support this exciting life-changing project in whatever way you can.

Mabomboh is a small farming village in Sierra Leone, home to 101 children between 2 to 16 years old. With the nearest school too far away, these children have been deprived of their right to education for decades. With your help, we want to bring education to this community and change their lives for generations to come.

We’ve come a long way already from the small hut we started with this January 2021:

Since then, we’re delighted to have almost finished a new building, which includes:
  • A one-room nursery
  • Two primary rooms
  • A library
  • A staff room

However, we urgently need further funding to have the school ready for learning this September.
So far, the project has been funded entirely by the kind support of Neneh (Evelyn) and Iain Maclean. We are now asking for your help to push this project further and support this community in need.

Our immediate fundraising targets:
1. Build toilets: £2000
  • We hope to build two stalls for the girls and two stalls for the boys.
2. Build a well: £1000
  • Building a well will provide the community with clean drinking water from underground.
3. Install solar panels: £4000
  • As it stands, the villagers have no means of accessing technology/communications without having to travel 10 miles to charge their devices. It is essential that the villagers have their own source of electricity - not only for us to communicate with them, but also for educational purposes such as sharing resources and teaching materials.
  • The solar panels will also create new job opportunities for the villagers.
4. Furniture and other equipment : £3000
  • We aim to build desks and chairs for around 100 students. Any outstanding funds from the above will be spent on books, stationery, and other essential resources for learning.
For the future:
Within 2-years time, we hope to build three more classrooms to allow the children to progress. But our vision for Mabomboh does not end with the primary school - eventually, we aspire to have a secondary school as the nearest ones are over 10 miles away.
We want to be ambitious with this project, because these children are worth investing in. As the school motto states, ‘Education is Power’, and we hope that through the help of your donations, that we can empower the young people of Africa to know their rights and achieve positive change on the continent.
