Sierra Leone

Efforts for post-war reconstruction in Sierra Leone recognize the critical role of education in helping citizens develop democratic and transparent government. But in most areas of the country, books are rare and teachers don't have access to the training they need.

We build schools

We believe that the children in underserved communities in Sierra Leone not only have unique God-given gifts to offer, but have an unparalleled drive to go to school. If we equip them with a quality education and a network of support, they will achieve things for their community and country that we never could. 

But that takes a group of people committed to their success. Want to join?

What we believe

Network

Education is important, but so is a network. You are probably where you are in life because of the people -- parents, teachers, friends -- who supported you. We are building a network of support for the students at Kabala Christian School; those kids will then support future students, together sustaining peace and alleviating the causes of poverty.

Patience

Building peace requires patience. It requires quality schools and deep local relationships. Impactful philanthropy demands bold and relentless dedication. It's not for everyone.

Proof

You should be able see the impact of your investment and know that 100% is used toward the mission. With technology and transparency, we will make sure you do.

Kabala School

In a small northern community called Kabala, children are becoming leaders who will drive peace-making, community healing, and community service. Imagine a school where the children who never previously had the chance to step inside a classroom now outperform their peers across the region. 

At the Kabala Christian School Campus, 450 children are getting the education of their lifetime, including access to: 

  • 12-classroom school campus

  • 50-computer center

  • 1 fully-equipped science lab

  • 1,500-book library
